Enterprise software like Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) or Field Service Management (FSM) is great at streamlining transactional processes. But not as good at providing visibility of patterns in these transactions, which often forces companies to undertake expensive Business Intelligence (BI) tool.
Bringing clear visibility into various transactional/operational processes in day to day operations is the first step. The ability to take business decisions improves when you create periodic view of performance (hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and yearly).
An existing system in organisation i.e. Excel PowerPivot can be used as a tool for Business Intelligence requirements for all organization working on IFS platform like Operations, Supply Chain, Production, Engineering, Financial, Human Resource etc. PowerPivot empowers users of all levels to access and mash-up data from IFS Data Source. PowerPivot for Excel allows you to output a variety of visual data to your Excel worksheet.
It dramatically extends the powers of “normal” Excel, and more importantly, the powers of people who use it. Managers can create their own compelling reports for transaction through SSAS cubes thus avoiding them from long waits for IT or BI professional development time.
