Today's competitive environment is fast and fierce, marked by complex supply networks, increased consumer power and stringent corporate mandates for governance. In order to succeed, companies need to innovate faster, collaborate better, and operate more efficiently than ever before. To do so, they need to depend on close collaborative relationships with strategic partners, the ability to exchange prudent information rapidly, and to act on that information in real-time, across end-to-end business processes.
Join this Webcast to learn how companies are shifting their BI deployments from a data-centric approach to a new and process-embedded paradigm that fosters informed, collaboration across and beyond corporate boundaries, empowering the business user within the context of daily business activities.
Hear from Don Tapscott about how the latest wave of technology developments have transformed how individuals and corporations collaborate, innovate and create value, and how these deep changes impact business intelligence. Then learn from SAP about how organizations can harness today the latest innovations with SAP NetWeaver Business Intelligence, in order to become more effective and efficient. Then then understand how Molson-Coors has leveraged the power of SAP NetWeaver BI to enable and accelerate the decision making process in a highly competitive beer market.
