Data does not equal information. Business analysis, planning, communication, and decision-making based on inadequate data will usually produce less-than-excellent results.
Moving past data to valuable information requires a robust data warehouse, business intelligence tools to slice and dice data and generate reports, and analytical tools to extract data, analyze trends, and uncover opportunities.
Further, in order to bring as much value as possible, the data warehouse that provides the basis for creating business intelligence must be timely, relevant, objective, thorough, integrated, and accessible. Once these data requirements are met, best-in-class reporting can be achieved.
Business reports are essential for effective communication of supply chain health, performance, statuses, and trends. Best-in-class reports must be tailored to business needs, flexible, convenient, and timely.
