Enhance Your Risk Management with Business Intelligence Platform
Navigating through global uncertainty is a daunting task for business managers and owners. The aftermath of COVID, geopolitical instability, the energy crisis, macroeconomic volatility, supply chain disruption, and rising raw material prices all strained local markets. Large companies felt the pressure on their profitability while small businesses struggled to survive. So, how do you make your company more resilient to a crisis?
The turbulent times require quick decisions and changes. Companies must rapidly adapt their strategies and operating models and implement changes. Following the storm, businesses must establish internal systems to identify potential risks before they become full-fledged exposure. In both cases, risk management is a support system to rely on. Companies with effective risk management can foresee and respond to risks ahead of time. And in the digital age, risk management is not only a framework and policy but a tech intelligence solution. The intelligence solution can analyze data in real-time, predict different scenarios, and make recommendations. Companies invest in risk technology to become better positioned for external shocks and risk events.
According to the Global Risk Survey Report, 65% of executives intend to increase their investment in risk management technology. Managers plan to increase spending on data analytics (75%) and process automation (74%). 72% will invest in technology to support risk identification and tracking. Risk Business Intelligence platforms can detect, track and manage risks. Here are some examples of how BI-powered tools can benefit your business.
