App is built on the provider's ERP system
Johannesburg, South Africa, and Costa Mesa, CA — May 13, 2005 — SYSPRO has announced the release of SYSPRO Analytics, a new business intelligence (BI) solution that is built on the provider's enterprise resource planning (ERP) software foundation.
The provider said its new solution is designed to address what the research firm Gartner Group says is one of the major issues facing business leaders today — that of enabling enterprises to provide their staff with the information needed to make real-time, informed, actionable business decisions.
SYSPRO Analytics is a metric-based application that the provider said is easy to install and configure. SYSPRO also said the software is designed in such a way that the user doesn't need to understand the intricacies of BI — a series of intelligent analysis objects and metric templates intuitively build the required processes for the information needed.
The software also uses Microsoft Office Web Components, such as the Microsoft Excel Pivot Table and graph, as the analysis interface, thereby reducing the requirement for extensive user training, SYSPRO explained.
It also uses Microsoft SQL Server, Analysis Services and Integration Services (formerly Data Transformation Services [DTS]) to provide an end to end BI solution. Users can select from pre-defined templates of metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) to provide information on aspects of their organization's operations.
SYSPRO Analytics manages all aspects of data location in the ERP database, as well as extraction, loading and transformation (ELT) processes, eliminating the need for any knowledge of internal data structures.
