To add insult to injury, the systems complexity creates information chaos. Each manager tracking the same metric with completely different points of view on past performance. Why?

ERP consolidation has long been seen as a key to reaching operational excellence, now it’s time to consolidate BI systems to reach management excellence and quality in decision making across your enterprise.
It is a complete, end-to-end BI environment covering the BI platform and pre-packaged analytic applications. The platform includes a server and end user tools such as dashboards, query and analysis, enterprise reporting, disconnected access to the data -- all supported by a unified, model-centric server architecture. On top of this platform, we have a set of analytic applications consuming the operational data sources and delivering greater insight to larger user communities across the organization via dashboards, query and analysis, alerts, briefing books, and disconnected mode - the same tools we mentioned under the BI platform.
The BI applications enable more pervasive BI by providing role-based insight for each functional area, including sales, service, marketing, contact center, finance, supplier/supply chain, HR/workforce, and executive management. For example, Sales Analytics includes role-based applications for sales executives, sales management, as well as front-line sales reps, each of whom have different needs. The applications integrate and transform data from a range of enterprise sources—including Siebel, Oracle, PeopleSoft, SAP, and others—into actionable intelligence for each business function and user role.
