Leveraging ERP Data for Near-Real-Time Analytics

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems have become commonplace at organizations seeking to optimize business performance measures. While ERP promises to streamline business processes, some hurdles must be overcome to optimally leverage data from ERP environments for business intelligence, let alone predictive analytics and operational intelligence. And as many enterprises juggle multiple ERP systems, some of the most critical issues include the pain of integrating non-ERP system data, and the complexity of balancing the ERP environment with reporting and analysis, which results in limited flexibility to make changes and incorporate other BI/analytic tools.

Hadoop is again challenged to prove its worth, this time by satisfying the stringent requirements that traditional IT departments and business units demand of their platforms for enterprise data and business applications.

Tips for Modernizing a Data Warehouse

No matter the vintage or sophistication of an organization’s data warehouse (DW) and the environment around it, the DW probably needs one or more upgrades and enhancements to address new requirements for advanced analytics, real time, streaming data, machine data, big data, and unstructured data. These and related issues are addressed in a new Checklist Report by TDWI’s Philip Russom called Tips for Modernizing a Data Warehouse. That report was sponsored by vendor firms Cloudera, Impetus, MapR Technologies, and Teradata Corporation.
