Eliminating inefficiencies and lowering TCO with Oracle EBS-friendly data reporting.
As a manufacturer with an ever-growing distribution, technology, and product development environment, Forterra relies on clear and dependable financial reporting for consistent profit growth and expansion in all the right areas.
To improve visibility and eliminate large-scale inefficiencies in their finance department, this American leader in manufacturing needed a solution that could significantly elevate their access to critical data, accelerate reporting and data-driven decision making, and seamlessly integrate with their existing technology arm: Oracle e-Business Suite (EBS).
With Incorta, Forterra can modernize its approach to analytics with instant access to billions of real-time and existing data points across systems and solutions. Our platform gives finance leaders the power to extract, filter, and analyze this data with immediacy and confidence, significantly accelerating their ability to take action and drive results. Incorta’s flexible integration with Oracle EBS also ensures complete visibility into all core business applications.
“Prior to Incorta, 90% of our time was being spent on ETL. We were spending so much time on modelling that we weren’t even able to spend time on reporting, just the modelling itself. Now that piece is gone with Incorta, we can use the table data as it is. You can bring together as much data as you want, and millions of rows can be analyzed in minutes. That’s the real beauty of Incorta.”

Slow ETL processes and massive dependence on IT for reports.
Forterra knew that their finance department was being handicapped by its dependence on IT to pull even the simplest reports. Not only that, but the time it took their IT department to extract, transform, and load data from Oracle EBS and other systems could mean weeks—or, even months— of waiting to act on this data, creating massive inefficiencies for their teams. Their existing BI and reporting tools: Sisense, Cognos, and SAP Business Objects, were also providing hundreds of reports across 30 financial dashboards, making it extremely difficult to simplify, clarify, or consolidate critical data across sources.
