Business Intelligence (BI)

Business intelligence (BI) and performance management applications enable real-time, interactive access, analysis, and manipulation of mission-critical corporate information. These applications provide users with valuable insights into key operating information to quickly identify business problems and opportunities. Users are able to access and leverage vast amounts of information to analyze relationships and understand trends that ultimately support business decisions. These tools prevent the potential loss of knowledge within the enterprise that results from massive information accumulation that is not readily accessible or in a usable form. It is an umbrella term that ties together other closely related data disciplines including data mining, statistical analysis, forecasting, and decision support.

Growing Small Business F.J. Westcott Gets Help with ERP Software Selection from TEC


F.J. Westcott, a photographic equipment distributor based in Toledo, Ohio (US), recently discovered its legacy system could no longer keep up with its growing business. However, Westcott realized it needed to do its homework before jumping into the purchase of a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Company executives, including chief financial officer (CFO) Jeff Cohen, did just that by attending an ERP Vendor Shootout moderated by Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC). These biannual events are intended to simplify the ERP selection process for companies with manufacturing, distribution, and project-oriented requirements, by hosting top ERP packages demonstrations side by side. Westcott found TEC's comprehensive and structured software evaluation and selection methodology could determine which, out of the hundreds of ERP systems on the market, was the best-fit for its evolving business.

These Are the Times of CRM Vindication and Validation - Part 1


Some previous TEC blog posts have discussed the benefits (but also the inevitable caveats) of white papers, including the all-too-common vendors’ self-serving marketing fluff and buzzword verbiage, and about their (un)intended audiences. As part of my daily routine of doing research on vendors and their strategies and offerings, I’ve read a ton of white papers in the last
