Using Incorta, Al-Watania benefited from
Faster Access to Accurate Insights
Incorta brings together data from different ERP systems to deliver the most up-to-date and reliable business perspective in minutes versus hours, or even days and months.
Business users can run queries of millions of records in a matter of minutes, with the power to drill down into details as necessary.
More Efficient use of Resources with True Self-service Analytics
With business users able to run, create, and update queries dashboards without IT assistance, Al-Watania has reallocated resources to more strategic projects and reduced outsourcing costs.
Poor usability, slow performance, and data issues made reporting unreliable.
Accessing data and creating reports and dashboards was essential to helping the Al-Watania team stay on top of operations. The company’s previous BI solution was slow and often delivered inconsistencies that made executives question the validity of the information. Loading data and query execution took too long, and running dashboards in real-time proved virtually impossible. Because the IT team had to rely on multiple SAP applications to develop the requested dashboards, the user interfaces were often complicated, making it difficult for business users, which further taxed costly IT resources.
An analytics platform that helps solve real-time business challenges.
By implementing Incorta, over 50 business users across the organization have access to robust reporting and dashboards that draw from all corporate data systems and integrate with other BI visualization tools. Incorta uses direct data mapping for data sourcing, eliminating the unnecessary parts of ETL and allowing business users the ability to generate reports independently.
Data can be integrated from multiple enterprise sources,
including SAP software to create up-to-the-minute reports that enable real-time action. And business users have the power to create their own reports and dashboards easily. This allows their CEO to receive daily, weekly, and monthly dashboards to monitor the performance of all functions. At the same time, the manufacturing and operations team can monitor various parameters of livestock like weight, feed consumption, and other factors in real-time to reduce loss and maximize productivity.
