Oct 2023 Newsletter

Happy Fall!

Here is a summary of all the recent activity at Dresner Advisory.

Market Studies

We published both the Small and Mid-Sized Enterprise Business Intelligence and Performance Management reports last month.

Our next reports will be Financial Consolidation and Close Management, scheduled for mid month, and Sales Performance Management, slated for the end of October.

A current list of 2023 market study titles and projected publication dates is on the portal welcome page.

Research Insights

Recently released titles include:

  • Change, Uncertainty, and Maybe a Renaissance: Like Barbie, Cloud Computing is Everything
  • Leverage Hyper-Decisive Data and Analytics Investments to Inform and Enhance New Business Priorities
  • Data Leaders Can Use Cross-Functional Teams to Extend EPM in the Enterprise
  • Prepare for an Unwelcome Surprise As ESG Reporting Becomes More Likely

Future Research Insights will cover budgets, spreadsheets, and self service BI/guided analytics.

Your client copies of Research Insights can be viewed and downloaded via the portal and are for internal use. If you would like to use your units to distribute the content externally, please contact me for details.

Mid-Year Data Collection

End user data collection is going strong. As we connect with the vast Dresner community to obtain their input, we also rely you, the vendors, to promote the survey with your customer base.

We recommend sharing your unique link through broad and direct distribution methods such as an email campaign. If you are an ADI vendor, please remind your customers to rate you in that section of the survey.

The mid-year program covers Analytical Data Infrastructure, Embedded BI, Data Engineering, Workforce Planning and Analysis, and Supply Chain Planning and Analysis, as well as two new topics Active Data Architecture, and Generative AI. These reports will be published on a rolling basis from December through the 1st quarter of 2024.

Please email Michelle if you need us to re-send your link or have questions on the process. We appreciate your efforts!

Strategic Directions 2024

Hopefully we’ve already booked time on the calendar where Howard and I can share our agenda and programs for 2024. If we’ve not yet set a time to connect, please let me know your availability in the coming weeks for a short discussion.

Thank you again for your continued support.

Best regards,
