2009 Vision Award for Business Impact

The BeyeNETWORK is pleased to announce the winners of the 2009 Vision Award for Business Impact. More than four dozen entries were received in six categories: analytics, business intelligence (BI), data access, performance management, operational BI and software-as-a-service BI, exemplifying the positive impact that software solutions can have on an organization.

The winning submissions covered a range of industries from healthcare to web analytics to manufacturing. The true measure of a software solution is its business impact, and the business value of these winning solutions includes costs savings, improvements in strategic decision making, data quality, operational efficiency; increased customer retention, ability to manage overall sales growth and increased forecasting accuracy.
