Transform your finance operations into a strategic, data-driven engine
Data inundation and information overload have burdened practically every largescale enterprise today, providing great amounts of detail but often very little context on which executives can act. According to the Harvard Business Review,1 less than half of an organisation’s structured data is actively used in making decisions.
The burden is felt profoundly among finance executives, who increasingly require fast and easy access to real-time data in order to make smart, timely, strategic decisions. In fact, 80% of analysts’ time is spent simply discovering and preparing data, and the average CFO receives information too late to make decisions 24% of the time.2

Fire and explosion are the biggest inherent hazards facing the chemicals industry. The combination of flammable raw fuel, open flames and the presence of gas components such as oxygen (O2) methane (CH4) and carbon monoxide (CO) can make chemical processing a hazardous activity, particularly in combustion. Not only is there a potential safety risk with burning combustible materials, but their by-products are often combustible too.

Ultimately, what your restaurant needs to do is offer a complete experience for your

A forward-looking CMDB does more than keep an organization's IT operations running. It draws clear connections between IT components and business services, which is the core of Business Service Management (BSM). But even more critical than the CMDB's ability to support business as it is now, is the question of how well it will drive business innovation in the future.
As organizations have improved service delivery, they have also turned their focus to presenting business value more positively. These organizations are beginning to develop true BSM systems in two ways: by understanding the metrics that successful businesses employ to determine the value of IT, and by linking these metrics and associated business services to IT infrastructure components.
As IT evolves towards a more business-aligned position, it must seek out new ways of working that support more effective operations, service creation, and service delivery. These include technologies, processes, and a culture that supports higher levels of accountability, as well as more dynamic responsiveness to business needs.
The key benefit of creating a case management methodology is to multiply its effectiveness by replicating it across the organization's patient-facing departments, practices and functions. In this way, your organization can reduce costs, increase quality and streamline its operations.
