Getting timely answers from your ERP data has been a pain. You’re wrestling every day with
high cost, complexity, and risk associated with manual/traditional reporting. Aren’t You?
Well, you shouldn’t anymore. Here’s a game changer for you to eliminate the hurdles of ERP
data analytics and derive deeper insights, faster.
ERP Analytics: The Promise and the Pain
In today’s highly competitive and fast-changing business environment, your ERP data is more valuable
than ever. With thousands of data points created every day, it can provide game-changing insights, such
as helping uncover new sales opportunities, flagging inefficiencies in the supply chain, pinpointing
revenue leakages and so on.
The key, however, is to enable decision makers with quick and easy access to this information so that
they can act when it matters. And we all know how difficult this can be. ERP systems after all were not
designed to be analytics systems.
ERP systems store data in complex databases that consists of thousands of tables and columns. All this
data isn’t necessarily integrated across the different functions, which means that there is no end-to-end
horizontal visibility across the business - sales data is just sales data, manufacturing data is just
manufacturing data, finance data is just finance data and so on. And then there is other data in other
formats, supporting enterprise systems, historical data from legacy systems etc. that need to be
integrated to get the full picture
With all of these complexities and more, the process of transforming raw data to actionable insights is
long and tedious. Typically it takes a bunch of programmers days and even weeks of coding effort to
extract, combine, prepare, and present data the end user wants. This is in stark contrast to what today’s
business user wants - real-time insights to make data-driven decisions, in the moment.
Automation – The Best Way Forward
The need of the hour is to empower everyone with the quick and easy access to the data and analytics
they need—without requiring constant technical assistance
And the most effective way to do this is through automation. By this I mean automating all repetitive
tasks across the data cycle - across data extraction, data preparation, data warehousing to dashboard
building, analytics and . This will essentially mean:
- Simplify access to data residing in ERP systems by reducing or eliminating the need for custom
coding or data extraction
- Automating the process of data preparation required to support accurate analysis
- Enable easy integration of ERP and non-ERP data to provide a single unified
- Provide self-service data visualization capabilities, enabling end users to quickly access and
explore analytics-ready data
- Enable KPIs and analytics with drill-down capabilities for users to track and act on performance
on a real-time basis
That way, we can finally get Analytics to deliver on its promise: real-time knowing and actionable
insights for problem-solving. Moreover, automation brings in a host of other benefits which are well
documented - from minimizing errors and lowering costs to improving resource efficiency and
productivity. A win-win for both business and IT.
Now that you know what automation can do for ERP Analytics, why not experience the benefits
