This technology gains more and more interest in business-related areas to enhance web usability, advertising, funding, product design and product development such as car engineering.

”The difference between failure and success is doing a thing nearly right and doing it exactly right.” (Edward Simmons)
Today’s most successful management teams know that there is the continuous need to measure up with the unremitting changes and increasing demands in business.
Being successful requires the development of concurrent business marketing strategies to make the best strategic decisions and to understand business metrics based on the most recent, real-time analyses of marketing channels.
Business metrics can be defined as the units of measurement that provides a way to empirically quantify a process. The most basic business metrics that represent the end goals of a company are “Profit/(Loss)”, “Growth” and “Cash Flow” but also may include the amount of products finished per hour, percentage of defects during a process period, hours required to deliver the product, employees needed to finish the product on time etc.
Good business metrics must be actionable and drive success.
Business metrics management is vital to understand how well a business is progressing toward its objectives. Using business process models, analysts describe the actions involved in a business and how they relate to the needed funds to accomplish the process goal(s). They assess the current state of a business and establish action plans to adapt and improve the business outcomes.
Measuring the business performance modeling is complex and most of the time it is critical to use the right software applications to understand what data need to be included in the metrics and what analysis strategies are best for best outcome.
Proper business metrics allow to:
Understand the main processes of the present business
Enhance responsiveness of the business to partner organization and customers/clients
Increase the Return on Investment (ROI)
Improve the present business structure and operations
Provide the knowledge to create the proper data systems for the business
Assist the alignment of business terms and technical outline that IT development needs to produce better metrics
Present opportunities to innovate the business strategies for increase success
Recognize outsourcing opportunities
Provide guidance for early capitalization on new/additional business opportunities
Furthermore, business metrics may help to encourage the management team, executive personnel but also employees to focus on the big picture of the company, to differentiate important from trivial tasks and to place greater weight on strategy and organizational results to improve the business outcome.
