Imagine being able to make a well-informed decision based on real time insight, available anywhere and anytime. Now imagine this for all the decision makers in your organization. We’re getting there.

Today IBM took one step closer toward realizing its vision of “analytics everywhere” with new capabilities and solutions that will transform how business users perform their roles, collaborate, and make decisions. How? By making sophisticated analytics more accessible, easier to use, and available to employees at any location and at any moment.

It’s estimated that 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created every day from sources such as transactions, email, posts to social media sites, digital pictures and videos. At the same time data is exploding, mobile devices have become much more pervasive. According to the latest reports, more than 10 billion mobile devices are expected to be in the hands of consumers by 2020.

These developments, combined with the emergence of technologies such as predictive analytics and cloud, create an exciting opportunity for IBM to help its customers give their front-line employees — who are inundated with information but often lack business insight – the collaborative tools to help them make better decisions.

This is especially good news for business users. For them, analytics can now build predictive models automatically and present those results as interactive visuals with simple, plain language explanations. This means line of business employees can have their data cleaned and merged and ready for analysis without burdening IT. It empowers them for their own analytic discovery without having to wait for the data scientist.

Staying on top of processes, having the relevant insight at hand, and soliciting feedback from others are time consuming tasks – and in a traditional environment, this may take days or even weeks to accomplish. Now, however, a sales VP on the road can use a mobile client or web UI to manage sales compensation related activities and collaborate with peers to get critical feedback. A finance executive can analyze revenue and spending trends, and make mid-quarter adjustments as needed, based on a deep understanding of likely outcomes.

Analytics can improve almost any business process — what products to make, what risks to take, which customers to target and how to make them stay. But today it’s not enough to have analytics available to only business analysts or data scientists. Analytics need to be accessible to a wider audience, to people making decisions, wherever they’re located

So many times, things that were once taken as fact are
disproved and turn out to have been a myth all along. Put links
into social media about getting more information by joining your list.
Yet, it still remains a fact that marketing your business online is one great way to increase your sales.
Mistake #4: Company Secrets Sometimes, employees will innocuously announce something on their social media profile that the company is not ready to announce publically as
of yet. Events can be found on the new Facebook page in the upper right under “Upcoming”-these are the events that are upcoming.
Your social media adverts can easily be changed
and updated with just a few clicks. If you are using ads then you definitely should be testing.
Twitter allows different kinds of connections: tweeting and retweeting relevant info and following people or businesses in hopes of being followed back can lead to getting your name out
there. It takes a lot of patience and strong
strategic moves to wipe out negative comments from forums, blogs,
or websites. And then asking yourself questions about the insights or social media data you have analyzed regarding your key target customer audience, such
as”how big is your company’s social media reach.

I don’t have my telemarketing company anymore but on my French consulting business “My French Network”
that I started in the US few years ago, I still use the same techniques.
Photos from larger events, such as weddings or shows, can take
days or weeks to completely process and prepare for viewing.
(3) By 2015, brands can expect that 50% of all their revenue will be linked directly
or indirectly to social media and social platforms.
You will rank higher in search engine results, almost immediately,
when you post in multiple sites because Google lists the same video multiple times when it is posted to different video sharing and social networking sites.
There are some companies that post too much and others that
post too little and, in reality, you’ll have to figure out
what works best for your business, as there’s no hard and fast rule that goes along with this.

Social networking has a surprisingly steep learning
curve for those who are taking their first tentative steps into the world of status updating and commenting.
In the past, having a website is sufficient for a business
to take the lead over others. With customer interaction comes customer insight, which, either good
or bad can really help a business improve their overall standing.
One of the best things while maintaining business
reputation and brand is to first restrict the heavy use of
social media channels or to have a perfect rule, which defines the flow of information from the company
to public. It’s important to invite your prospects to call
or e-mail you.
