Depending on their position and role, there is a difference in the type of information that is needed and in the way in which the contents are handled. This requires flexible reporting based on consistent data presented in an informative manner.
In larger companies in particular, information has to be represented at a number of different aggregation levels and from a variety of points of view. The situation becomes even more complex when new business processes are initiated and incorporated into reporting as a result of digitisation. Many companies suffer the effects of cumbersome processes that are difficult to manage. All too often, the staff involved find themselves dealing with tools and repetitive tasks. They do not have enough time left over for analysing and commenting on the situation. If more and more complex data is incorporated into reporting, efficient management within the company becomes even more difficult. A comprehensive business analytics approach, including an in-memory database, a data warehouse and a cloud and reporting solution, is required in such cases.
