Analytics and The Cloud – The Future is Here

As seen in Financial Executive magazine


In "Analytics and the Cloud – The Future is Here," published in the November 2012 issue of Financial Executive magazine, Jane Griffin, Canada and America’s Deloitte Analytics Leader and Forrest Danson, US Deloitte Analytics Leader, discuss how many leading companies are choosing to deploy analytics — or at least a subset of analytics capability — in the cloud.

Operating in the cloud means that companies have some or all of their applications, platforms and infrastructure offsite and managed by someone else.  The cloud can give companies both cost and logistical advantages. And due to three disruptive forces that are coalescing for many companies these days, they will likely need these advantages.

These disruptive forces are:

  • Big Data
  • Enhanced Mobility
  • Business-oriented Social Media

In this article, the authors discuss how smart managers can leverage combinations of these forces to improve their present operations and build a solid foundation for achievement of company goals.  Companies that realize the value of these disruptive forces can take the lead, while others lag.
