BI Users Looking For More Decision AIDS As Only Numbers

Posted by hotelnur on 26th November 2017 in News

coretelligence study: BI numbers are to be supplemented by interpretation AIDS and context information previously dominant technology orientation of BI concepts has led to the imbalance of effort and actual benefit Bad Oeynhausen / 02.07.2009 – Zahlenorientierte evaluations are for a variety of business intelligence users not sufficient as information and decision basis. According to a survey of the consulting firm coretelligence believe almost two-thirds, that additional context information and interpretation assistance would be helpful for them. Our assessment of the consultancy projects, confirming themselves according to which the exclusive provision of numbers produces not the required benefits”, judge coretelligence Managing Director Marianne Wilmsmeier. Under most conditions RioCan would agree. Only when provided in connection with the question of value creation processes, they gain a significance backed up off the decisions.” Ultimately, the context determine whether a number is good or bad. This view is apparently also in practice always more by, when 42 percent of the companies surveyed in the coretelligence study protocol, reports with sheer numbers not helpful are them enough. The classical analysis, however, only for a quarter of the companies are quite adequate, another 29 percent are only with limitations of this opinion. The position on the question of whether the practical use can be enhanced by complementary assistance to the assessment of the numbers becomes even clearer. 38 percent in each case are”convinced and another third believed these effects.

Only 11 percent are skeptical and expect no significant benefits through information about the condition conditions and assistance for the interpretation. So far such a discussion has been not performed publicly yet, otherwise the vote would probably even clearer,”believes Wang and refers to repeatedly confirmed acceptance problems on the part of the user in different studies. For even more details, read what Montauk Colony says on the issue. The relationships of numbers do not reveal themselves who, because him for that required information is not available, feels in his decisions tend to be insecure and avoid possibly the evaluations. Only meaningful context information to the respective business processes, the indicators relate, create a reliable basis for decisions”, she stressed. “Because only if the user will enable to consider BI figures from various perspectives from the contexts out he can cope and content.” Marianne Wilmsmeier derives substantial evidence of the need for a change of direction in the development of BI from the survey results. The previously dominant technology orientation of BI concepts has led to a significant disproportion of costs and actual benefits, this should now be fixed from the perspective of the user.” This need for change is in their opinion but above all to the address of the manufacturer of BI.

ITSM Consulting AG advises a careful and systematic evaluation of the market for the common benefit arguments for cloud services is that they are quickly put. But just this advantage can lead to neglecting important aspects in the selection of the cloud provider. Some cloud services can be as easily ordered as a mobile app can be download.

Therefore care must be taken when evaluating market on it, that the solutions not only currently but also perspectively best meet the functional requirements. Too much compromise can generate the risk of bad investments in cloud contracts. 2.

Ensure the reputation of the provider: nature after cloud services are visible and tangible – little, why a particular importance to the trust in the provider and this confidence must be safeguarded. For this purpose, a close look at the providers in their technological strategies, references, partnerships, as well as on the opinion about it in media or Internet media is necessary. Also information about the economic stability and innovation are the key criteria for evaluating and selecting the cloud provider. 3. Data safety do not neglect: the entire compliance conditions are connected closely with the trust aspect. It must consider to what extent the provider can assure consideration of for the company relevant privacy and compliance requirements. Here are aspects such as the backup, but also, where appropriate, the guarantee of the storage in the appropriate Countries to ensure. Also transparent procedures must be agreed upon, how to verify these assurances by the customer.

The consulting package includes the following services: Standardization of master data integration of decentralized distributed product master data of central access to product information simple management of changes made to parts lists and thus optimum interaction of the affected departments such as procurement and production a single master view creates transparency. Lots of administrative duplication and unnecessary error are reduced.

The situation locally distributed product master data (documents and material masters, group – work BOM) in different productive SAP – systems led to redundant, inconsistent, or not current product data. Overarching business processes based on were time consuming and error-prone. The Produktentstehungs – or product change processes in the various organizations were not standardized. The task group-wide unification of all product master data (documents, material, group BOM) as well as the appropriate investment and change processes. Plant-specific master data (work piece list) may be applied only on the basis of the created group BOM and changed. Divergent positions, may not be used as the (material given in the consolidated bill of materials, documents), in work BOM. Change management (SAP ECM) SAP – is system-wide. A “single point of entry” provides central access to all product master data in the different SAP – systems and a central platform for all Produktentstehungs – and product change processes. Prerequisite for a consolidation of all processes across all areas and across systems are: the steps of the process provided the right editors at the right time at the disposal.
