As business environments are growing increasingly complex, having accurate, consolidated, and real-time insights into operational performance is vital to measure the performance of the business. With accurate and timely reporting of such business controls, organizations can identify critical operational issues that affect the desired business outcomes for key stakeholders. Timeliness and accuracy are crucial to enable support units to proactively resolve issues.

Many of these controls today are still derived manually but a systematic, timely, and consistent approach is vital to proactively monitor business performance. Thus, the status of these controls are critical deciding factors to proactively address gaps and understand the performance of critical value chains.

The ability to provide roll-up and consolidate views for different personas is also important to ensure the views are provided with the right level of granularity and context. However, most enterprises fail to consolidate and roll-up and access their real-time reports at varying visibility levels with context across their value chains. This precludes an accurate enterprise view of key controls from operational to executive levels. This results in a loss of time in the resolution of key issues, which in turn results in operational inefficiency and reputational impact.

Enterprises thus need to integrate their real-time monitoring system with a customizable enterprise-wide control overview. Holistic reporting of controls on a single and sacrosanct platform can help them accurately measure their efficiency, which in turn would help to achieve the desired business goals. Here are a few additional benefits of having a next-generation, holistic control observability capabilities integrated into your business:

Reduced costs and increased revenue: Controlling costs relies largely on the ability to identify small issues before they escalate into large and expensive ones. The end-to-end and granular level control observability aids proactive alert and remediation of smaller issues with agility. This empowers businesses with continuous efficiency improvement, resulting in more revenue-generating services.

Improved customer service: A single sacrosanct repository of easily accessible information enables organizations to accelerate their reaction to events impacting related processes that could lead to missed deadlines and deliveries to high-value customers, and more. The benefits are obvious – increased customer satisfaction and retention.

Unfailing compliance with regulations: Businesses face a multitude of compliance issues — environmental, financial, and security-related due to differing regulatory requirements in various geographies. To keep up with the same, they need reliable reporting of key controls to make sure they are aware of non-compliance. This allows them to better align with their complex compliance needs, limiting the scope for breaches.
