Financial managers in all industries need to be aware of the health of their organization as well as the health of the processes that enable sound financial management. In this article, I will outline some basic metrics that can be used to identify and evaluate the health and efficiency of the accounting and finance function as well as the financial health of the organization.
While it is true that specific metrics can vary across industries, in this article we will address metrics and concepts that can be applied across most industries.

Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service (BICS) - Every organization should carefully evaluate the tool, as well as its potential for end-user adoption.
In today’s technological landscape there’s an ever-accelerating demand for increased efficiency and effectiveness.

Endeca Information Discovery (EID) is a data discovery tool that helps business analysts to rapidly explore relevant data. If you are already using Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) and wish to reuse the BI data models from Endeca Information Discovery, here are the options. The primary difference between both tools is that one is used for pre-defined analytics while the other is used for having a conversation with your data (analytics vs information discovery). The overall goal for both approaches is to get the most value out of the data available.
