With an increase in the adoption of cloud applications by large corporations, most organizations today are in some form of hybrid state i.e. they are using a combination of both on-premise as well as cloud applications to run their business.
Regardless of where the applications maintain their data, organizations need the ability to see a complete view of the company spanning across different parts of the business, which in this case would be combining insightful data across on-premise as well as public cloud instances.
To take some examples:
->Combining HR and Financials data to analyze Revenue per employee
->Combining Sales and Financials data to create customer Scorecards
->Combining Sales and Order Management data to improve your demand planning system
->Combining your Sales and Financials Data for Forecasting
In this article, I would like to present multiple design approaches that other organizations have successfully used to consolidate data from multiple cloud and on-premise applications and to perform seamless analytics across these varied data sources.
If you are attending Collaborate15 (#C15LV), please join me to discuss this topic and case studies of what other organizations are doing to address this challenge.
