Reporting & Analysis
Gone are the days of green-bar reports delivered once a month on fork-lift trucks. Today, business reporting is more than slapping data on a piece of paper and throwing column headers and a title. It's about transforming raw historical or forward-looking data into information that provokes action and influences business decisions. It's about presenting the information in a manner that allows the user to get a 5,000 ft view, then a 500 ft view and finally the ability to review transactions at a detailed level. It's about embedding analytics that allow the user to perform what-if analyses, drill-through & drill-down actions that will lead them to additional information beyond the report including linking back to the source transaction system.
