Business analytics uses data to help organizations in their efforts to manage information and performance — and make smarter decisions. While it can apply to almost any business process, most organizations tend to focus on five main areas of decision-making and operations: customer, supply chain, finance, workforce and risk management. When used efficiently, business analytics delivers uncommon insights and breakout value.

We collaborate with organizations to help them capture, manage, and analyze information from internal and external sources to help answer some of their toughest business questions. We architect, design and implement industry-focused, integrated solutions leveraging the entire IBM software suite of solutions, including:
