Organizations must be able to collect, store, move, and understand large amounts of data throughout the enterprise to maintain their competitive edge. Maintenance and integration of multiple systems are both costly and confusing. ERP reduces the complexity of business application portfolios, creating a central nervous system for enterprise data. Process integrity and resource tracking drives costly errors down while stabilizing data flow throughout the enterprise. The enhancement of data collection and flow generates more opportunities for information usage and analytics. BI enables the data collected through information systems to be molded into valuable models and reports, which are easier to read, understand and use. Better data analytics lends to more accurate decision-making, and untimately, a stronger bottom line.
