Historically, businesses have used data warehousing to reveal patterns, improve procurement and delivery, and pinpoint areas for improvement. Such methods are very reactive in nature and the answers come slowly, only after pouring over reams of historical data.
Why do intelligent operations matter?
Key imperatives in the implementation of a real-time operations solution:
Close the data loop through context
Most ERP systems provide some amount of relevant data; however, most ERP systems don't provide visibility into the information relative to specific business objectives.
An enterprise uses many systems for different activities. No one system contains all the information you need. Combining information in meaningful ways from various IT and OT sources can result in lower production costs and optimized performance.
The path to intelligent operations begins with Enterprise Visibility
People are the source of sustainable creativity and innovation in business, and information systems must support them. Rapid access to real-time information, presented visually and intuitively, empowers people to contribute to the profitability of the business.
Key considerations for visualization requirement:
