Business Intelligence (BI)

Business intelligence (BI) and performance management applications enable real-time, interactive access, analysis, and manipulation of mission-critical corporate information. These applications provide users with valuable insights into key operating information to quickly identify business problems and opportunities. Users are able to access and leverage vast amounts of information to analyze relationships and understand trends that ultimately support business decisions. These tools prevent the potential loss of knowledge within the enterprise that results from massive information accumulation that is not readily accessible or in a usable form. It is an umbrella term that ties together other closely related data disciplines including data mining, statistical analysis, forecasting, and decision support.

Mainstream Enterprise Vendors Begin to Grasp Content Management Part Three: Challenges


To conduct collaborative processes, businesses need embedded intelligence, and business intelligence (BI) or analytics applications focused on structured data offer only a part of the total solution. In other words, businesses also need content management for the unstructured data and content, which can contain a majority of business information, given that many decisions makers collaborate via e-mail or voicemail, which are examples of vast unstructured info that currently resides outside of business processes and of the reach of ERP and BI systems.

Has SAP Found Magic Formula (One) To Learn The Ropes Of Marketing?

The "S" in SAP Doesn't Stand for Security (that goes for PeopleSoft too)


During the course of product evaluations for a customer, the Technology Evaluation Center has uncovered a potential security hole in SAP R/3's three-tier architecture. SAP has revealed that they expect the database or third party products to handle security between the application server and the database server.

In case the data transfer needs to be secure also either database specific or database independent security mechanisms can be used. However, note that SAP advises to use a separate, internal subnet in the networking environment. Thus, if it is physically impossible to sniff, the security mechanisms are not mandatory. Note, that application server and database server are expected to be in a LAN environment and not connected via Read More

SAP Defies Economic Slowdown, For Now


In January, SAP announced upbeat results for Q4 2000, in contrast to the current market slowdown.
