After few years
I see myself in a much larger role than at present in a couple of years from now primarily due to my penchant to learn new things and the ability to detach myself from the past quickly as I believe in moving forward.
Important Decisions
I have changed just one organization for which I worked for 25 years. However, during the span of 25 years within the same organization, I changed 9 departments and kept on moving from site to region and to corporate centre. The career moves helped me in leveraging more challenging opportunities and develop my skills to move up the ladder and get noticed. It also helped me unleash the hidden and latent abilities and talent before the top management which only provided me with more and better opportunities. The second career move saw me change the organization as everyone wants to breath some fresh air and also learn new ideas and skills and unlearn/shed some of the older ones which no longer meet the test of times. The goal is to remain on an ever ascending learning curve so that one has the competitive edge.
Tools of BI
Data mining, Spreadsheets, data warehousing,Reporting and querying software,decision engineering,Online analytical processing(OLAP),Digital dashboards,Process mining,Business performance management
Local information systems are some of the Business intelligence tools present in the market
Definition of BI
Business intelligence provides organizations with business related historical, real time and predictive information to provide support to its business decision making processes like planning, quality, financial, service, market, productivity, ,profitability and so on)
Your Role
As a chief Procurement officer, My role is to bring in key business related information or Business intelligence to my organization so as to improve its bottom line and competitiveness in the market, reduce costs, improve service performance, improve supply chain effectiveness, supplier relationship management to mitigate supply chain risks and to meet the long term goals and objectives of the organization
New trend
As supply chain networks have become more complicated, the need for better supply chain technology solutions have become critical. ERP and Best of class SCM solution providers have made huge investments in providing solutions to address the needs of distribution, manufacturing and service providing companies in such areas as Business Intelligence, Inventory optimization,manufacturing optimization,Product life cycle management,RFID, logistics optimization. Knowledge of these key trends would definitely help me remain competitive in my career path.
Never say die attitude is what keeps you going. Its a tough world. Always keep on sharpening your learning curve. Never give up even in adversity as failures are spring boards for future action. learn your lessons and move on. That's what life is all about. Of course, enjoy the sweetness of life in doing things that give you joy all along. Be kind to yourself and others.
Recommending Specialization
Predictive analysis and Logistics optimization is what I strongly feel is going to be used in future as the markets are becoming more global.
Role of BI
The role of BI in an organization is important to get insights into consumer behavior by boosting your ability to analyze current consumer buying trends, to improve visibility of various processes within the organization so that areas needing improvement can be identified, to turn data into actionable information in order to make successful strategic plans for your organization and to improve efficiency by sharing information across various departments thus reducing duplication of roles and improve accuracy of data generated by various departments.
