Q. How does the economy affect the way companies think about and invest in business intelligence (BI) and analytics solutions?

A. Lack of visibility has been one of the key effects of the recession and the current slow economic recovery. Managers have been required to react to a growing number of unknowable factors. This requirement drives the need for flexibility and agility at the operational and tactical decision-making level. As a result, decision makers at all levels of the organization are seeking support from tools that enable rapid access to the freshest, most relevant, and actionable information. In addition, there is a growing body of evidence that BI and analytics solutions play a significant role in creating competitive advantage. In combination, these factors contribute to a continued investment in BI and analytics technology and processes across organizations of all sizes.

The Green Committee has since initiated many new recycling and waste reduction programs. Noetix now recycles all of its paper, plastic, cardboard, aluminum, and glass products, as well as recycling old batteries, CFL bulbs, and plastic grocery bags. Read more
