For New stakes...

Today, organization management is faced with new stakes.

The mobility of markets being re-segmented continues, as the appearance of new consumption, distribution and production channels and shifting scopes all combine to change management structures and processes profoundly.

The increasing number of regulatory, financial and sectorial constraints implies an increase in risk control processes.

Lastly, structural pressure on costs and focus on cash flow is nudging organizations towards a strategy of re-deployment and optimization of financial, operational and human means.

... New Responses

The Micropole group, a functional and technical performance management specialist since 1991, with over 500 dedicated staff, partners you in the optimization of your decision-making and your management mode enhancement.   

The Finance function is constantly changing. Having to comply with ever-more restrictive financial, business and risk norms and regulations, the financial function above all plays a major role in strategic and financial decision-making.

Smart BI brings together the concepts which have emerged over the last few years around:
Data visualization, which will enable enhancement of information in a particularly explicit visual mode. Each type of information will be represented in a favored mode: histograms, gauges, mapping, which will make the information much clearer and more readable than in  a pivot table-type presentation. Color-coding, animation, navigation and user-friendliness are also elements to be carefully considered to facilitate interpretation and reading of figures.

Data discovery is the capability of drilling down and exploring information from Data and Big Data to extract information which will assist corporate development.

BI self-service aims to give more autonomy to users so that they may build their analysis models easily and by themselves, without telephone/helpline assistance.
