Metrics that Matter: Actionable Business Insights at Microsoft

For a large organization with a diverse and geographically dispersed facilities portfolio, getting a complete picture of CRE assets is difficult. Finding answers to the bigger questions - such as how properties are used, and whether the use of space and investments align with overall corporate strategy - becomes open-ended without very good answers. During this session you’ll discover how Microsoft turned the problem inside out by engaging individuals from outside the CRE field with backgrounds in data warehousing, data mining and analytics. By bringing together disparate sources of information into a single data warehouse, now Microsoft has a powerful insight-extraction and reporting tool that answers questions its creators never imagined. The answers are driving new efficiencies, supporting dynamic new ways of working, and are elevating CRE.

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn from the experience of Microsoft and identify the key elements of this approach you could apply to serve your organization.
  • Understand the breadth of metrics that can create new insight, form a basis for objective measurement, and drive decision-making.
  • Understand how a data warehouse and reporting strategy can help your business reach a new level of excellence.
