ERP and CRM Integration for Better Big Data Analytics
As small to medium sized business enterprises grow, their IT staffs inevitably integrate the enterprise’s ERP and CRM data. At that point, management types tend to assume that the data will always be instantly available. Unfortunately, that is often not the case.
This predicament could plague your enterprise if you believe that your enterprise does not need Big Data analytics to help you get the answers you need. Even if your volume of data is not substantial compared to larger enterprises, you still need analytics tools. What some people do not yet understand is that Big Data is more than just “lots of data.” It also includes various types of data from traditional sources such as point-of-sale to the non-traditional unstructured social media interactions. New data is also created every day at different speeds to, from, or within small and medium sized entities as well as large ones.
Many pundits now suggest that businesses of all sizes must pay very close attention to Big Data unless managers of such businesses are certain that (a) they have all the necessary data, (b) such data can be accessed easily and (c) they implicitly trust that data. The same pundits agree that if your enterprise does not meet those three criteria, then you should adopt a current, defensible data management strategy as well as the correct technology to support it.
So that small to medium businesses (“SMBs”) can take full advantage of the benefits of Big Data, it is necessary that management and employees not deal with entangling technicalities. SMBs can navigate the confusing Big Data landscape, cost effectively if they start with a solution having the capability of storing their diverse and quickly expanding data types without the need to learn a new “high tech” vocabulary.
SAP HANA to the rescue ““ it is a proven in memory database solution that boosts analytical performance and is also flexible. One reason SAP HANA is so incredibly successful (especially for those companies running SAP Business One) is its ability to work so well with other technologies.
No matter how small your business is, you can’t ignore Big Data and the integration of structured (point-of-sale data) and unstructured (social media interactions) data. The first step is to think about the underlying data strategy, and the next is to understand and build a sound technology platform to support that strategy.
