Data is not presented in easily understandable
Culling data from multiple sources is very difficult
Difficulty understanding database schemas and
related table structures

operational and customer service sectors.

Challenges with distribution of information across the organization
and outside the enterprise with security
Expert database schema knowledge is required for even the most
Users face problems with passing parameter to/from the Lawson
Stretched IT resources are required for creating any report or
dashboard that is even marginally complex
Operational changes in business puts a tremendous burden on
adapting deployed reports and dashboards to remain functional
Difficult to adapt BI tools for compliance and taxation related
