What Do These Have in Common? • Monitoring and re-routing of shipping for minimum fuel usage • Optimizing manufacturing machine utilization and production capacity while catching quality issues before they become costly • Detecting distribution bottlenecks and initiating corrective processes before they impact sales

  4. All Are Examples of Operational Responsiveness Operational responsiveness is the ability of business processes and systems to respond to changing conditions and customer interactions as they occur, enabling businesses to capitalize on opportunities, drive greater efficiencies and reduce risk Making the right things happen,at the right time, every time

  5. Driving Operational Responsiveness • To drive Operational Responsiveness, organizations must: • Monitor all relevant business events as they occur, wherever they occur, internal or external • Analyze these events in real time using prescribed business criteria to identify opportunities, inefficiencies, and risks • Visualize key business indicators on real-time dashboards • Respond to capitalize on opportunities, increase efficiency, and reduce risk by: • Alerting decision-makers to important business events • Performing automated actions • Initiating response processes
