Accretive’s Center of Excellence Program Aims to Help Global 1000 Cut Costs, Optimize Performance, Drive Competitive Advantage and Manage Risk

Accretive Technologies (Accretive) is announcing an industry wide program to advance the adoption of predictive analytics for decision making. Accretive’s Center of Excellence (CoE) helps companies operationalize analytics and derive more business value from analytics across the enterprise. By providing the training, tools and resources companies need to harness the business-changing power of big data and predictive analytics, Accretive’s CoE program helps customers overcome deployment obstacles and achieve better results—including improved performance and better agility.

While many organizations have made great strides in the adoption of analytics, most are not yet realizing the full potential of their investments. In response, Accretive has developed the CoE program, which includes a roadmap for success to help companies quickly and efficiently build analytics into decision-making across the enterprise.  Predictive analytics with advanced mathematical modeling capabilities help companies deal with the growing complexity of business and make critical forward-looking decisions with confidence.

“A large enterprise makes millions of decisions every day,” said Rita Sallam, research vice president analyst at Gartner in a press release about a recent Gartner report entitled ’Actionable Analytics Will Be Driven by Mobile, Social and Big Data Forces in 2013 and Beyond‘.  ”The challenge is that companies have far more data than people have time, and the amount of data that is generated every minute keeps increasing. In the face of accelerating business processes and a myriad of distractions, real-time operational intelligence systems are moving from ‘nice to have’ to ‘must have for survival.’ The more pervasively analytics can be deployed to business users, customers and consumers, the greater the impact will be in real time on business activities, competitiveness, innovation and productivity.”

“In today’s highly dynamic, global economy it is increasingly difficult to accurately assess the risk associated with critically important business decisions and agilely respond to changing market requirements,” said Alain Roset, Director of Transformation Strategy for La Poste France. “There are tremendous benefits and ROI to be gained from analytics. Establishing an Analytics Center of Excellence helps enterprises fully leverage analytic investments to make more informed decisions, neutralize risks and plan for the future.”

Accretive CoE: Supporting Smart Decisions in a Complex World
It takes more than just technology for companies to successfully operationalize analytics. An enterprise-wide strategy—fueled by the right business goals, talent, tools and resources—is necessary to promote an analytics-driven culture. To achieve this vision, leading companies are extending the concept of the Center of Excellence (CoE) to analytics, and reaping the benefits of more predictable decision outcomes and improved return on investment (ROI) from analytics deployments.

Once established an Accretive Analytics CoE helps businesses identify opportunities to:

  • Reduce costs and increase efficiencies
  • Innovate to achieve competitive differentiation
  • Grow revenue
  • Increase operating speed and adaptability
  • Manage risk caused by increasing complexity

“Customers of Accretive’s CoE program are able to quickly derive value from predictive analytics because we deliver advanced tools and methodologies in combination with highly customized training based on over 20 years of successful customer engagements,” said Dr. Nabil Abu El Ata, President and CEO of Accretive Technologies. “It is gratifying to see customers transition from pockets of analytic excellence to the pervasive use of evidence-based decision making—that is when the true value of predictive analytics is realized.”
