Business decisions are only as good as the information on which they are based. However, over the last decade, data volumes have grown tremendously and compounded the intricacies involved in their processing and analysis. Industry trends indicate that this growth will rapidly accelerate, resulting in generation of multiple terabytes, even petabytes, of data over the coming years. Traditional business intelligence approaches will not be able to keep pace with this massive growth in data volumes and the complexities raised by the dynamic nature of today’s enterprise business. ERP Global offers business intelligence and data warehousing solutions that will keep pace with these developments and effectively manage your information assets to produce actionable intelligence that will enable you to take informed business decisions.


ERP Global's Business Intelligence (BI) and Data Warehousing (DW) practice offers deep expertise in enterprise information management (EIM) that encompasses services like data integration, master data management, data warehouse management, data cleansing and quality management, creating dashboards and reports, advanced analytics and Corporate Performance Management to help you manage the following challenges:

      • Break down data silos, improve collaboration between business functions, reduce latency in information availability, and enable right-time decision-making capability
      • Gain insight from the terabytes of data being generated on a daily basis to take smarter decisions and improve bottom line
      • Equip an increasingly mobile workforce with access to BI reports and dashboards through mobile devices
      • Reduce the time taken to derive value from BI projects
      • Tackle inconsistencies within enterprise data to gain competitive benefits
