Data Mining: The Hidden Treasures of Your ERP

The boss is unhappy with the company’s ERP. After a costly implementation, delivery delays, and bugs being worked out – she still isn’t getting the answers from the data she was hoping for. The promised treasure from data mining remains elusive!

Why?

Upper management and company leaders have a primary responsibility; get answers and insights beyond the obvious. This is what keeps a company a world-class leader. And industry leaders also lead in profit – which is the bottom line. The timeliness of the answers to these hidden questions is what supports improvements on, “speed to market”, production management, P/L, waste management, customer retention – and more – company growth. Yes, default data analysis is useful; it’s also the default. It isn’t leadership data.

Remember, world-class leaders are thinking beyond the obvious.

Too much data?

ERP Systems are excellent for funneling data from a multitude of disparate sources. The information to answer a company’s key questions is collected and stored – that’s a given. Accessing it in a manageable manner is the challenge.

The value of data usually remains in a holding pattern. The technical knowledge to query data from a database, or databases, is yet immensely complex and challenging (SQL statements, Db management, programming languages). College degrees are created for such expertise. And we live in a time when big data is the norm. So data isn’t the problem; accessing it in a legible manner is.

Whose responsibility is it to go into the mine?

Most IT departments are already topped out with major responsibilities. Adding data management and reporting most likely will either get your IT department giving their notice, or have the responsibility back-burnered as they continue to concentrate on site/information security, hardware maintenance, and the day-to-day support for staff’s use of your company’s technology.  (How do check email on my phone again?) I’m sure you CIO has some others, more important, that I’m unaware of.

So… Consistent, timely reports are still not getting to the company leaders.
