Smarter Analytics: Making Better Decisions Faster With IBM Business Analytics and Optimization Solutions
Businesses are constantly looking for ways to improve their efficiency and to cut costs. However, situations arise that disrupt the best laid plans. For example, after a major storm on the east coast of the United States disrupts travel, an airline uses a sophisticated scheduling solution to reposition its crews so that the airline can recover and start flying more quickly than its competitors. A power company uses an advanced solution for dispatching power plants to generate electricity, achieving a return on investment in less than 10 days. A financial institution uses an ingenious way to match buy-and-sell orders, reducing clearing time from one day to under two minutes. Think about what similar efficiency improvements can mean for users business.
