Scenario analysis is a powerful way to evaluate business opportunities and risks. For many users, it's a core requirement of business intelligence. But the reality of most organizations today is that data needed for relevant scenario analysis lives in many different places: cubes, databases, Excel files. Is the only solution to build a new data warehouse or custom-code an application for each new business scenario?
We'll look at new techniques that let you combine different data sources on the fly and create customizable assumptions that let users quickly envision key scenarios. This not only reduces the cycle time for scenario analysis, but makes this kind of analysis possible in many cases where the expense of setting up new infrastructure is not justified.
Attend this webinar to learn:
- The essential elements of scenario analysis
- How to blend disparate data sources without planning new infrastructure up-front
- Ways to augment your corporate data with relevant external data to make a richer, more valuable analysis
