Introducing Fusion Analytics

Big things are happening in risk and resilience, driven by emerging threats, new ambiguities, and the accelerating pace of change.

The events of the last year were so universal, nearly 80% of companies reported being negatively impacted by the crisis, as compared to a year ago.

The 20% that bounced back stronger than ever had the following characteristics*:

  1. Well-practiced protocols they could call into action, flexibly
  2. Exhibited well-honed cultures of experimentation and innovation
  3. Tailored their actions in line with data about the operating environment and internal operations

Driven by the events of the last year, and amplified by increasing regulatory and standards expectations, leaders are making significant, enterprise-wide pivots in scaling the resiliency of their operations.

In collaboration with our user community, Fusion is leading a revolution in risk and resilience. No two crises are the same, and the ways in which companies experience crisis is markedly different, requiring an intelligent and agile response.

Upon the success of our global customer summit Solutions21, we are thrilled to announce Fusion Analytics, Fusion’s deeply embedded version of Salesforce Tableau CRM. Fusion Analytics is the next step in the evolution of Fusion’s insights foundation, providing better ways of integrating data, producing insight, and delivering decision experiences to the teams responsible for leading their companies on the path to a brighter and more resilient future.

Easier Ways of Integrating

Your Business on a Single Screen

Connect the dots between your organization and ecosystem. Create simplicity out of complexity by integrating data about the delivery of important services  –  and the people, process, places, third parties, data, and systems that support them. Fusion Analytics provides a vast library of hundreds of pre-built connectors, including common integrations such as Snowflake, Informatica, and more that allow for many forms of mitigation such as vendor risk management to be practiced.

Business Intelligence Designed by You

Put the Power of AI Models, Dashboards, and More in the Hands of Your Business Userssfdc-einstein-analytics-overview-products-build-with-clicks (1)Your data needs change every day. Harvard Business Review estimated in 2020 that the average dashboard takes 4-5 days to produce**.

According to that same study:

  • 84% of first line workers report a poor experience with current dashboards and data experiences, with 86% reporting a need for better insights technology
  • 67% of executives are not comfortable accessing or using data from their existing tools and resources

Dashboards are only part of the solution. It’s estimated that nearly 50% of enterprise data goes untapped, with 50% of data analysts stating that their data is growing faster than their organization’s ability to keep up***.

Don’t leave your business users waiting at the gate. Create advanced experiences quickly by using easily customizable templates, third-party apps, or custom-built dashboards. Give users access to explore the data necessary to respond to changing business conditions while they’re happening, in a way that feels natural and intuitive.

Frictionless Continuous Learning That Puts Your Team Ahead of the Curve

Analytics overview on multiple devicesFacing new levels of global risk and ambiguity, companies are turning to improved risk sensing to fuel better response and avoid disruption.

Many teams are focused on more agile ways of working, with a focus on more dynamic preparation of a library of incident management plans that can be called into action at a moment’s notice.

In order to surface the important risks, make sense out of complexity, predict what is coming, and assimilate the best response quickly, leading companies are increasingly moving from descriptive ways of reporting (retrospective) to more diagnostic, predictive, and ultimately, prescriptive insight.

Maturity model: sophistication of analytics vs business value

Fusion Analytics takes previously static and backward-looking reports and dashboards into a real-time and future-state view of your enterprise.

Together with the Fusion platform, these new insights power the ability to:

  • Collaborate virtually
  • Intake situational intelligence and simulate conditions quickly
  • Understand what-if scenarios clearly
  • Predict results more accurately

Fusion Analytics provides dynamic runbooks to your team when it matters, where it matters.
