Bottleneck of one technology makes way for another; Oracle AIA!

Ever wonder how same technology in different way eases our business process. With the little Novel information how technology integrates different sources of information there by giving us the desired "right information".

Question directly comes what it takes to have the "right information"?

Responding this query forces the organization to identify and apprehend what information is desired to fully support the business practices critical to the company's triumph.

The clog is not in developing new revolutionary technologies, as some might believe. Rather it's in finding "revolutionary deployment" processes that would move available technology into widespread different use.

This vision completely comes into line with what our experience is while working with this telematics client; we at INFOSYS didn't invent any technology. We just thought-out out how to deploy it in optimized way, ORACLE AIA.

Utmost priority for any business is to track the Revenue for any HITS OR MISSES and main challenge on this while working with this telematics client was to integrate order entry and billing consolidation to know which and how many billing accounts have been dropped and why? For these two contrasting sources ORDER ENTRY (CRM) and BILING (BRM) we used an ORALE AIA view, which was already available with client, to consolidate the data in warehouse, order entry and billing consolidation was of utmost important and was achieved there by eradicating the need of multiple iteration to track every load in BRM before final bill is processed for every customer there by saving lot of time and effort.

Once a business has established a "revolutionary" business model that works truly well, technology can then play a key protagonist to hasten that business model, that's what was done.

The rudimentary necessity is to grasp how business processes are followed in industry; a business can then comprehend how information technology can be used as an accelerator to dramatically enhance those business practices.


Quicker ROI on BI, everyone's dream!!!


The importance of critical Business Intelligence (BI) lies with the bottom lying fact that whatever good or bad it delivers as quickly as possible. The basic objective for every organization is "Pervasive BI" correct information to the correct person at the correct time.

What is the "Right" Technology?

The selection of a method is a critical business assessment. With the present scenario and changing trends, businesses need bigger and faster access to more information to make quick and right decisions. The question is they getting it? Despite enormous expenditure worth billions of dollars on data administration and business intelligence tools, the solution in many cases might be No. With business intelligence (BI) solutions, an efficient execution isn't just economically smart--it has become a competitive obligation. The information organizations are looking for to manage business is constantly changing. The sooner they get access, construe and segment that information; the stronger their competitive position.

Two key reasons for turning software into a shelfware are fear of inaccurate information at end user level and annoying technological difficulty. These and other technical snags can quickly dispatch an expensive software solution to "shelfware" grade in an organization.

To avoid such inacceptable, annoying results; A Winning Alternative: Transform existing reports into live, actionable data. We need to have effective right-time business intelligence. Effective indicates that the BI is used to enhance routine functioning business does, and right-time signifies that this optimization happens at intervals that matches corporate requirements.
