About IMT

IMT is an industry research and advisory services firm for market analysis of management concepts and vendors that enable risk-informed business decision making processes.

Our Market Perspective

The relationship between technology advances and business decision making has a muddled past. The impracticability of decades-old concepts of artificial intelligence and the resources and skills necessary for big data analytics have limited the potential for technology-supported corporate decision making. Significant strategic, operational, financial, and resource investment decisions have generally relied upon a narrow set of data analytics, the experiential biases of decision makers, and plain old intuition.

IMT asserts the convergence of the following factors is now enabling a giant leap forward in the science of management decision making:

  • Core technology advancements such as microprocessor designs integrating processing and memory more efficiently and low-cost ubiquitous data storage.
  • The swift progress of machine learning applied to new analytical challenges.
  • The opportunities for melding risk management, analytics, and decision support system software designs.
  • The burst of data collection of just about everything.
  • The headway of risk management principles as necessary core management concepts for all business decision makers.

Management decision making processes will always leverage the personal experiences and intuition of managers. However, a more disciplined approach integrating risk management concepts and technology advances will improve decision speed and outcomes leveraging risk data and other facts sourced well beyond decision maker experiences. Enterprise managers must balance the need for deliberative decision processes with the need for speed in today's dynamic business environment.
