Ventana Research, the leading performance management research and advisory services firm, has unveiled a series of research studies that quantify companies' lack of the information and technology they need to manage performance effectively. These research results as well as education to help organizations address these issues will be available at Connections 2006, Ventana Research's upcoming Analyst and Research Summit on Performance Management, which will be held June 12-13, 2006 at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco.

The research results to be released at the Connections 2006 event include findings that have implications for the ability of corporate executive management to deliver maximum productivity and value:

  • Almost half of those individuals in businesses using scorecards and dashboards to be able to manage to established metrics cannot drill down to find out supporting details and more than a third cannot change the perspective or views of the information.
  • Only 30 percent of organizations are using their expensive enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems in ways that support performance management.

Further findings to be unveiled at the conference will provide additional insight into how and why companies are not innovating or improving their business performance using information and technology.
Sessions and panels at Connections 2006 will be led by Ventana Research analysts, media editors and business and IT executives from companies including Ameriprise, Deutsche Bank, Maxtor, TiVo and others. They will offer insights into how to address the many strategic challenges facing senior executives in areas such as compliance, IT governance, master data management, business intelligence, financial profitability, spreadsheet chaos and performance improvement.
