The Cornerstone of Financial Control
Time equals money. Time plus data equals control.
All professionals, whether in management, consulting,
engineering, or accounting, must be confident that their
value is reflected in their bottom line. One of the primary
factors driving that compensation is the amount of time
spent on a particular subject or client. But too often front
line earners at those firms don’t provide the clean, data-rich
timesheets needed to accurately gauge the effort required
by each project.

Curves® and Jenny Craig® operate 7,000 Curves clubs and franchises globally and 400 Jenny Craig locations supported by IT service desks in California, Texas, and Australia. The two organizations combined to form Curves Jenny Craig in November 2013. Outdated systems, known internally as “the black hole,” plagued Jenny Craig with inefficient processes and created a lack of accountability. For example, records could not be categorized or prioritized properly, tracked by date or owner, and they could be intentionally hidden in an ambiguous status. Without visibility, Jenny Craig had no way to quantify the impact of their customer service. Mary Carter, manager of IT service, summed it up, “We had no reporting prior Cherwell Service Management.” Curves was in even worse shape as they logged tickets in an Excel® spreadsheet.

SQL is a critical skill for business intelligence. From accessing to transforming to reporting on data, SQL gives you the power to get the job done. It can help you discover exactly how your company is performing, what your customers are doing, or how people have reacted to your marketing campaigns.
Unfortunately, while SQL can tell you what has happened, it can’t tell you what will happen. What if you have questions like:
• How valuable is a lead based on company attributes and their behavior on our website? • How much MRR will we generate in the next 30 days? • Which customers are likely to churn next month?
When the need for non-profit organizations to maximize impact, efficiency, and accountability is greater than ever, a modern Enterprise Resource Planning solution (ERP) can deliver an array of tangible benefits. Learn how next generation ERP can help improve efficiency, add value to projects, and improve budget forecasting.

There are obviously a variety of choices open to you: a spreadsheet plug-in may be appropriate if you are only focused on general ledger reporting and do not have concerns over security or compliance. You might also suppose that this is a low-cost option, though we would argue that the remediation required, the additional audit fees and the lack of repeatability means that this is a false economy and that this approach will end up costing you more in the long term. A second use case would be where you already have a financial reporting solution installed, when the add-on facilities for purposes such as business intelligence are likely to be your major focus. In this case an Oracle based solution is likely to be as good as anything else.

The analytics tools you’ve come to rely on probably haven’t kept pace with this rapid change, and may now be less effective. Systems may not be nimble enough to follow customer journeys across channels and time. Different platforms in different departments can’t talk to each other, so reporting is slowed. And it’s difficult to take proactive steps when your view of the total customer experience is a little blurry.

Today, everything computes. Intelligence has been infused into
things no one would recognize as computers: appliances, cars,
roadways, clothes, even rivers and cornfields. Tomorrow, many
of these things will think, thanks to breakthroughs in cognitive
computing. Even the things that don’t think themselves will
continue collecting and reporting the massive quantities of
data that feed cognitive systems.
The included Framework for Inquiry is a non-prescriptive exercise that can help boards and management craft a replicable reporting template for reviewing risk levels, measuring operational effectiveness, and prioritizing initiatives over time.
