Leveraging Macroeconomic and External Data for Better Forecasting
With ever-increasing industry volatility and market uncertainty, organizations must create plans that include not only their own historical performance but that also incorporate the specific external factors that impact their lines of business.
Organizations are part of a global network of entities, and they must understand the impact of a plethora of external factors such as geopolitical changes, macroeconomic factors, supply chain shifts, weather events, government policy, and consumer behavior, just to name a few.
Agile enterprises must think outside the proverbial box (their four walls), where they can access value-added insight that is now available using external data and AI based predictive modeling. There are new external-intelligence-as-a-service providers that invest a great deal of resources in building data and prediction solutions that can be easily leveraged by organizational decision makers.
This IDC paper, sponsored by Prevedere, examines:
- Why organizations need to leverage external data + economic intelligence
- How economic and external data can be leveraged to deliver a new layer of insight
- The importance of external intelligence providers that deliver turnkey solutions
- How businesses are more holistically and effectively able to predict future outcomes
