Publisher Rapidly Transforming Its Culture and Boosts Efficiency with Cloud-Based BI
4-page Case Study posted: 10/03/2013

HarperCollins Publishers wanted to increase its competitiveness by giving decision makers greater insight into market-research data.

Employees access the web-based solution from their desks, and can view and customize reports on demand. As a result, HarperCollins has given employees’ control over market-research data, increased business insight, enhanced decision-making, sped efficiency, improved the services it can provide to all of its authors, boosted business and IT agility, and saved US$200,000.

4-page Case Study posted: 08/13/2013

Volkskreditbank (VKB) AG wanted to be the most customer-oriented bank in its native Austria.
