In an era of big data, BI capabilities are critical

Here’s four important reasons to integrate specialist BI software with your enterprise solution:

Making sense of data requires a precise picture of all your data—which may include information that resides outside of your ERP.

Big data is becoming more critical and copious. Information is being generated via websites, CRM, IoT devices, RFID tags, barcodes, manufacturing equipment and more.

Q

Older style reporting tools don’t necessarily allow you to capture all relevant data or provide nuanced answers needed to make smart choices and plan ahead.

Z

Do-it-yourself BI and analytics, or tweaking standard reports, requires IT expertise and is often a costly and time-consuming process.

For businesses that want deeper insights and agility, an integrated BI solution can pull data from multiple sources to provide high-level, actionable insights in real-time.

Problems with outdated reporting solutions

Q

Requires intensive planning, IT resources and time to get right

Make your data work as an asset

Read this white paper from ZAP for an excellent overview of the steps required to extract intelligence from your data, with a focus on businesses using SAP Business One.

What is Business Intelligence and why does it matter? 

BI is about analysing business data to provide information that supports better decision-making.

With the right BI and analytics solution, you can intuitively understand the causes behind business results—and identify the appropriate next actions—across your sales, marketing, inventory, operations, and finance departments.

How does BI differ from reporting?

Reporting is often a static representation of what happened, focused on a specific activity, data source or time period. BI is a more dynamic way to synthesise and analyse data—the technologies involved in BI allow you to interact with information and get immediate answers to why and how a result occurred.

How does BI differ from analytics?

The key difference is that business analytics uses the analysis of data to develop predictions and elucidate trends that can inform forecasting and planning.

How do BI and analytics benefit your business?

More intelligent decision-making can boost your ability to cut costs and increase sales:

  • Your sales manager can see which reps are underperforming and where they can improve, query margins and product performance, and predict customer behaviour.
  • Your marketing manager can slice data in seconds to better define market segments and optimise their advertising spend.
  • Your operations manager can quickly spot inefficiencies and isolate which processes to fix.
  • Your finance team can dig deeper into costs and identify areas where they can save money.

When implementing BI solutions into your business you will want to achieve business outcomes – improved customer service, better cash flow and streamlined operations by making data available for better, more timely decision-making.
