Bangalore: Business Intelligence and Analytics Again Top Technology Priority for CIOs in Asia Pacific in 2013.Technology research and advisory firm Gartner has announced the finalists for the 2013 Gartner Business Intelligence (BI) Excellence Award in Asia Pacific, Procter & Gamble, Iluka Resources, Dulux Group.

The Gartner BI Excellence Award recognizes organizations in Asia Pacific that demonstrate excellence, innovation and the impact to the business of a program involving the use of analytics, BI or performance management initiatives. The awards attracted submissions from organizations across the region, representing large and mid-size organizations from a variety of industry sectors, including private sector, government and non-profit.

The awards are run every second year in Asia Pacific. This is the third time the award will be presented. Past winners were food packaging giant Tetra Pak (2009) and Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (2011).Gartner research director Daniel Yuen said the three finalists all demonstrated innovative ways they are using BI to get more value from their data and achieve measurable improvements.

“Organizations continue to be challenged in developing their capabilities in information or fact-based decision making,” said Mr. Yuen. “Widespread adoption of business analytics has resulted in a fundamental shift of BI strategy towards being more future facing. It is encouraging to see the global best practices demonstrated by all of our finalists are focused on achieving this.”

BI and analytics topped the 2013 technology priority list for CIOs in Asia Pacific again this year, according to the 2013 Gartner Executive Programs (EXP) CIO Agenda survey. The increasing focus on BI in the Asia Pacific region is largely due to CIOs combining analytics with other technologies to create new capabilities, such as analytics plus supply chain for process management and improvement; analytics plus mobility for field sales and operations; and analytics plus social for customer engagement and acquisition.
