Lanner, a provider of simulation software proven to maximise performance and optimise resources, today endorsed Gartner’s recognition of simulation as a top 10 strategic technology for 2012 for the third year running. The top 10 technologies and trends predicted to be strategic for most organisations next year, were announced at Gartner’s Symposium/ITxpo in Orlando last month.
Within the report, Gartner highlights simulation as an integral means of supporting next generation analytics. The analyst states that analytics will increasingly focus on decisions and collaboration, and that simulation, prediction, optimisation and other analytics, will empower even more decision flexibility at the time and place of every business process action.
"Gartner’s recognition of simulation as a top 10 strategic technology for the third year running is testament to its increasing importance in supporting decisions help that drive performance and growth whilst mitigating business risk,” comments David Jones, CEO, Lanner. “For organisations to equip themselves with the agility to thrive in the current unpredictable and highly competitive markets, making the best decisions, based on live, contextual information is crucial. The benefits and cost savings that simulation continues to deliver for companies such as Nissan, Ford, British Airways, BAE, Coca Cola Enterprises and Kraft, continues to open up opportunities for Lanner in this growing market."
