White Paper - Paving the Road to Success: From Spreadsheets to Advanced Analytics

The ‘culture’ of an organization includes habits and processes that are familiar and comfortable. There are many aspects to the success of a culture change within a business organization. When an enterprise decides to move from the silo spreadsheet culture to Advanced Analytics it can go beyond simple spreadsheet analysis and BI reporting with a comprehensive analytical environment that identifies business opportunities, and provides metrics and measurements, predictive modeling and forecasting, and self-serve data preparation tools for business users. By understanding how and why team members employ spreadsheets, the enterprise can develop a strategy to move to a fact-based, secured environment with tools that users will want to adopt.
