Workforce analytics has become an essential business tool for leading companies that view workforce performance as the key to improving company results, according to a new global survey of business leaders by Harvard Business Review Analytics Services. Workforce analytics is a set of integrated capabilities (technologies, metrics, data, and processes) to measure and improve workforce performance. The goal is simple: put the right
people with the right skills in the right work, provide them with the necessary training and development opportunities, and engage and empower them to perform at their highest possible level.
Talent is an increasingly critical differentiator of corporate performance and poses one of the most significant barriers to growth. CEB research finds that boards at top-performing companies are twice as likely to have a deep understanding of talent issues as boards at lower-performing competitors. However, most boards lack sufficient understanding of key talent issues facing the companies they oversee, particularly because the data and analysis they receive provide limited insight. This whitepaper outlines the critical talent conversations every board should have and shows how industry leaders are broadening their understanding of talent issues and assurance about critical talent risks by expanding the perimeter of talent issues they monitor beyond executive leadership and reshaping conversations on executive performance evaluation and succession.

MAINTENANCE MADE EASY WITH THE HELP OF DATA
Predictive maintenance involves gathering targeted data for analysis, the results of which will help anticipate potential failures before they occur. Companies opt for this type of maintenance to avoid predictable incidents and repair equipment, assembly lines, or machinery with minimum impact on their operations.
Imagine a world where incident alerts arrive 30 minutes before problems even begin — you’d actually have the power to prevent outages and deliver a truly seamless experience to your customers. Sound impossible? Think again — the right AIOps (Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations) solution can help you maintain uptime, reduce manual incident-management tasks and increase productivity.
IT organizations are now responsible for delivering seamless customer experiences while preventing outages and managing an increasing number of systems. With growing responsibility placed on IT, there is an opportunity to drive strategy for company-wide business processes and operations.
Companies using machine data powered platforms like Splunk collect disparate data types to quickly troubleshoot and monitor systems. By adding predictive capabilities, IT can glean critical insights for the business and develop strategic initiatives on issues that matter.
