As businesses grow, they often struggle with managing expanding operations that have increased in complexity. In many cases, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software provides a foundation for the organization to more effectively execute on its objectives. Still, expanding operations expose growing organizations to challenges beyond just ensuring that the business runs smoothly. In their quest to differentiate themselves from the pack, growing organizations must search for any available edge.
The data contained within ERP can provide this edge, but many organizations just do not have the ability to utilize that data intelligently. Conversely, top performing organizations are more likely to apply Business Analytics to ERP data to more effectively use this valuable information.
This leads to decisions that can improve customer service, demand planning, and, ultimately, profits. This report, based on a survey of 105 growing organizations, uncovers how ERP integrated with Business Analytics can improve business execution and decision-making.
