About the webinar

COVID-19 and the resulting disruption of the economy have shown the fragility of small and midsize businesses, as well as their resiliency and flexibility.

Indeed, evidence shows that SMBs that have integrated analytically driven decision making into their business perform better than similar businesses that are not using analytics, even in a thriving economy.

And those SMBs are also better equipped to deal with downturns and unexpected market changes.
