Real-Time Versus "Right-Time" Decision Making: A New Competitive Advantage


In this day and age, the ability for a company to utilize information quickly and effectively is more important than ever before. But faster access to increasingly large amounts of data doesn’t always mean that good real-time decisions are being made.

Finance has to be involved in the selection and use of new analytic tools which rapidly define and filter data from a variety of sources. Selecting and sorting information into what’s vital to decision making and what isn’t allows for better decision making to occur. A company’s data needs to be defined and synchronized consistently across the board, but quality of data also has to have value in order to be of use. The data then has to land in the right hands in order for the right actions to be implemented. Quality, real-time data has to be accessible at the right time, in the hands of the right people.

In this white paper, learn what right-time decision making is and how to use analytics to your benefit, e.g., to test hypothetical choices before implementation. Get information on how to create strong data governance to support high quality data, investigate analytical tools for problem-solving, and learn how the delivery of information to decision makers can affect your business choices positively or negatively.
