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.

The Rise of Mobile Access to Your ERP Data


Mobile user access to enterprise resource planning (ERP) and other back-office systems has become a core requirement as organizations seek operational efficiency and deepening customer engagement. Without mobile access, system users are disadvantaged by needing to return to a desktop, often after a job is completed, to enter data relating to that job and get information about other jobs. Frequently that information is not entered at all, which becomes a further hindrance to user adoption of your ERP investment.

Mobile users increasingly are looking for ease of access to ERP information to perform their jobs on any device at any time. This requires the mobile solution to handle:

  • Different mobile devices and applications for different roles/jobs
  • Ability to be used by staff with limited computer or language skills, in adverse conditions
In this age of “bring your own device” (BYOD), mobile devices are affordable, mainstream, reliable, secure, and scalable to run multiple applications. We are now able to prove return on investments from those organizations that have implemented mobile solutions and developed BYOD policies. In today’s environment, mobile solutions are seen as core drivers of organizations pushing to gain operational efficiencies over their competitors. According to a recent report from Aberdeen Group, “enterprise mobile apps in 2013 are no longer ‘nice to have’—they’ve become essential enablers of organizational transformation, by increasing operational efficiency, accelerating time-to-decision, deepening customer engagement, and streamlining workflow processes.”
