Growing Business Changes and IT Challenges

Growing Business Changes and IT Challenges

The management of business and operations in organizations is becoming more challenging and complex. Effectively managing and working with this complexity means IT organizations are called on to provide business-intelligence-related capabilities for understanding where and how value is created in the business, and responding more quickly to market changes and opportunities. These macro business changes are altering the way organizations view Information Technology including business inIT Challengestelligence, which will affect how they view and support an information management infrastructure. These business changes include:

  • Multiple and interlinked strategies and metrics: Organizations are striving to link multiple strategies and metrics (innovation, customer creation, management, operational efficiency and effectiveness, and financial performance) to drive transformation.
  • Ever-increasing rates of change: The speed of change and the occurrence of multiple business cycles, product development, delivery models and markets have increased the rate of evolution. With new partners, delivery models and markets (geographic and industry), businesses are constantly changing (sense and respond).
  • Fragmented planning systems: The sophistication of planning systems has increased such that a myriad of solutions exists for all aspects of planning, from demand and supply chain planning to marketing planning and financial budgeting. These systems are being deployed tactically, which makes it difficult to understand the impact of different aspects of corporate activities on overall performance.
  • Increased scrutiny: The compliance demands resulting from various regulations and other governance regulations mean that information and decision-making processes are subject to the same degree of scrutiny as transaction processing. Organizations are striving for greater transparency and balancing this against privacy and integrity demands.
  • Consumerization of IT: Increasingly, users at all levels expect to have access to business, entertainment, government and personal information, similar to how they use tools such as Google to search the Web. This places increasing pressure on IT to respond more quickly to a growing demand from users for web-based solutions that are intuitive and easy to use.. IT organizations need to incorporate these user requirements and behaviors into their business intelligence strategies and governance policies concerning the use and access to information.

Net Profit Margin – This Financial KPI helps to understand how much profit is generated on each dollar spent. The ratio involved is just Net Income divided by Sales. Keep in mind that always a higher profit margin doesnt means its good as a low margin can indicate pricing strategy and/or the impact competition has on margins. Also this ratio is not useful for companies losing money since they have no profit.

Return on Equity – This Financial KPI helps measure organization profitability by the ability to generate profit for each unit of stakeholder equity. A high ROE tells that the company is able to grow from its existing investments and is calculated by net income divided by shareholders’ equity. Keep in mind, if new shares are issued a weighted average of the numbers of shares throughtout the year should be used. Rather than showing one year average ROE, its better to get a historical snapshot that provides 5 to 10 years worth of information.
