The Importance of Open Data
By adopting ERP systems, organizations eliminate the inconsistencies and inefficiencies that stem from working with standalone departmental systems. However, new demands on the business -- increased competition, shrinking profit margins and new reporting requirements -- are forcing companies to increase access to data and to analyze and utilize it in new ways that are outside the scope of ERP systems. Many organizations are looking to business intelligence (BI) software as the solution to unlock ERP data and put information in the hands of users to better manage business performance.
Find out how an open data strategy for BI lets you consolidate data from any source, with any latency, to create a single business view of your enterprise that you can use to drive better performance. Read this white paper to learn how to use BI to leverage ERP data and discover how Cognos has combined forces with SAP, Oracle, PeopleSoft, IBM and Microsoft to address BI issues.
