Corner Office Analytics

C-Suite Analytics

The rise of big data, and advent of tools that help businesses make sense of that data, affect every role and process within the organization. As analytics reaches across the enterprise and into the corner offices, C-suite executives (CXOs) are getting “hands-on” and seeking their own data-driven insights to inform vision, strategy, and decision-making.

Performance Risk Analytics used to be the domain of a few select teams buried deep in the business. But today it's landing on the agendas of most CXOs. We have identified 8 Corner Office Analytics roles that are evolving — and how those roles intersect with one another:

CEO Analytics
Many CEOs have been content for others in their organizations to own the practice of business analytics. But with data playing a bigger role in value creation, many are seeking a different approach. The more comfortable CEOs are with business analytics, the better prepared they are to orchestrate the analytics responsibilities of their direct reports.
CFO Analytics
CFOs are expected to provide valuable, hands-on partnering with their peers in the business, beyond their ability to provide standard financial reports year after year. Meanwhile, many finance organizations were built to deliver information rather than insight. That one reason so many CFOs are turning to business analytics.
CHRO Analytics
CFOs are expected to provide valuable, hands-on partnering with their peers in the business, beyond their ability to provide standard financial reports year after year. Meanwhile, many finance organizations were built to deliver information rather than insight. That one reason so many CFOs are turning to business analytics.
CIO Analytics
CIOs are increasingly focused on building an interconnected analytics ecosystem - approach that recognizes the data linkages between different parts of the business and makes more efficient use of data-focused resources.
CLO Analytics
Just like the other parts of businesses, legal departments depend on high value, defensible information that can be used to answer some of their toughest questions. Just as important, they need the ability to dissect large data sets quickly, so that they can focus on what important: winning.
CMO Analytics
With growth at the forefront of every business agenda, CMOs today find themselves under enormous pressure to do more with less. In this environment, the convergence of transactional data with third-party sources and social, mobile, and unstructured information offers many CMOs an attractive path to value and opportunity.
CRO Analytics
As the issue of risk increasingly becomes a core strategic concern for many businesses, CROs are facing mounting pressure to identify a wider range of risks and better understand the impacts of differing economic environments on business risk and performance.
Tax Analytics
From ensuring that their organizations are consistently complying with tax laws in all jurisdictions, to executing their tax plans and processes effectively, tax directors around the world have come to recognize the growing value of information in these efforts. Tax analytics can help them accomplish their objectives and better serve their businesses.
