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.
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.
These directions must be adjusted to changing markets, segmented and international, for corporations faced with structural pressure on their margins and costs, their liabilities and their assets.
Corporate general management and business management need to assess process efficiency and the results of their strategies with the aim of optimizing their performance.
Micropole therefore partners general and business management- risk management, HR management, purchasing management- in advising on and implementing enterprise operational and variable compensation management.
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.
For the corporation who knows how to use it, the masses of available data are a real manna which can strengthen your activity, enrich your repositories even reshape your business.
It is however essential to check the potential value of the data gathered before adding it to your business information capital.
From a qualitative and competitive standpoint, a corporation has much to gain from implementation of a Master Data Management solution to optimize its business performance.
Master data input the main corporate processes and applications. If these data are inconsistent or inaccurate, it will forcibly impact the decision-support and operational capabilities.
The prevalence of smartphones and, even more so, that of tablets, constitutes the first true revolution since the coming of the internet.
Mobility today is a real extension of the corporate information system, and is becoming a strategic axis for both general and business management. All corporate applications will eventually have mobile extensions. This opens up new prospects and new usage for these applications.
Created in 2004, GIMS is the Société Générale branch in charge of private banking, asset, securities and brokerage management.
The issue: to have reliable and unified information at budget, monthly income and forecast levels for all units.
“The project centered partly on the modeling of general expenses, explains Karim Hajjaji, Chief Operating Officer of the GIMS branch of the Société Générale. It was modeled by Micropole in a multidimensional base. The model is transposed in a homogenous way, while taking into account the specifics of personnel costs. The emphasis was also placed on the correlation between general expenses and headcount. Moreover, the Run and Change distinction enabled us to build forecasts and to follow-up on them per project. Finally, we standardized the models to make synergy and time gains, and to obtain a unified and shared view.”
