As computing power increases the amount of data generated increases, both inside and outside of our organisations. Finding patterns and generating insight from the data you hold is vital to make sense of the world and support good decision-making. Nowhere is that more important than in the pursuit of a more sustainable business as the traditional business metrics simply won’t get you to where you want to do. So we have to create and manage new metrics.
SEC has been working with large corporates on handling their supply chain and raw materials related data for nearly 20 years. We work with you to find out what is happening and what interventions are required to get you to where you want to be. So having data simply isn’t enough we need to use it to educate, to inform and to strategise if the slog of keeping data up to date and ‘clean’ is to be worthwhile.
Business intelligence is often confused with fancy graphics, although they are great, it all starts with the act of finding the right questions to ask. What is going to make the difference to the situation or problem I am handling? Who owns that data and is it reliable? This is getting more out of the same systems by working smartly and using data to see where you want to go.
