Ad hoc analysis helps organizations know the latest trends and patterns that impact the sales of their tangible/non-tangible products. For instance, an ad hoc report shows an event that influenced sales at a particular point within a specific timeframe. End-users can gather insights into every aspect of the sales process and identify the factors for the slow cycle. The company can also determine how its existing marketing strategy is performing to boost sales and change the course of action if needed.

Organizations providing financial services used to rely on unstructured historical data and trends to forecast future performance. But now, they are relying on ad-hoc data analytics for better tracking and predictive analysis. This helps organizations better measure and quantify risks for improving cash flow and boosting corporate value.

Ad hoc analysis can also be used in the healthcare industry by promoting greater transparency and helping stakeholders make better resource allocation, budgeting, staffing, etc. Healthcare facilities can conduct ad hoc analyses to enhance greater operational efficiency and reduce mortality rates.
