Midsize organizations have the same complexities as large enterprises. But they need solutions that fit their wallets. They also need a trusted advisor who can help them extend their skill sets and build a roadmap that enables them to gain value in small increments over time. Join us for this complimentary web event to hear how FYI Solutions worked with Bloomsbury Publishing to build a single Business Analytics environment to drive better, timelier decision-making. Among the business challenges facing Bloomsbury were the need to run unified reports across sales and financial data, to perform ad hoc reporting for financial analysis, and to integrate its reporting with Microsoft Office applications. In addition, the company wanted to upgrade the reporting capabilities of its transactional finance system for monthly actuals, budgets, forecasts and overhead. The first step on this journey was implementing managed and self-service reporting so Bloomsbury business leaders could gain better visibility into their sales and financial operations in the US and UK. Bloomsbury needed better visibility into business-critical metrics, visualized through dashboards and reports. And the solution needed to be easy to use and provide a single source of reporting so decision making was more accurate and complete. The next step for Bloomsbury Publishing and FYI Solutions is to deliver dashboards and visualizations on top of their reporting so Bloomsbury leadership can easily see how key metrics are trending and react quickly. They will also implement an automated solution for performance management, including planning, budgeting and forecasting, so they can get away from manual spreadsheets, and collaborate more effectively across their US and UK offices. In this webinar, you will learn: • How a unified platform unites disparate data sources to provide a single view of sales and financial reporting for more accurate decision making • How a platform based on IBM Cognos Express can scale to meet the growing analytics needs of an organization and the increasing skills of its users • How a self-service model for reporting improves the productivity of business users • How working with a Business Partner to develop a long term roadmap that is executed incrementally helps you builds value over time while keeping within budgetary goals Links below provide access to additional information or actions related to this event.
