Companies are looking for a single holistic view of their customers, products, accounts, and assets to reduce risk, improve compliance, and get products and services delivered to market more quickly. The desired result is to improve relationships with customers, partners, and suppliers. A single view of customer leads to better service, increased satisfaction, loyalty, and increased revenue.
Having this holistic view of company information has the added benefit of greatly accelerating the development of future data-centric initiatives. In fact, most of today’s critical business initiatives cannot succeed without the effective integration of information, including:
- Single view of customer
- Business intelligence
- Supply chain management
- Basel II and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance
