to create new real-time dashboard
Disparate systems and data restructuring hinder business agility
With over 10,000 products and millions of connected systems deployed globally, Nortek’s complex business was further complicated by multiple new acquisitions. Rapid IoT and smart home advances added market pressure to deliver value — which required real-time insights. But to analyze Oracle NetSuite ERP data, they had to dump it into Microsoft Excel and then manually apply pivot tables and lookup functions. Nortek turned to business intelligence (BI) tools like Tableau or Microsoft Power BI, which require keeping the data warehouse up to date and structured correctly. IT resources were focused on these time-consuming processes rather than delivering business analytics. The company needed to find a better way.
Instant insights with no ETL enables agility and flexibility
Within three weeks, Incorta delivered value — starting with real-time analytics dashboards the company’s CEO and CFO could access on their iPads. Now leaders and managers can look at complex problems from any angle and solve them quickly, which has allowed the entire business to become strategic and action-oriented. Just four weeks into the implementation, the government’s trade war with China threatened to impact 40% of Nortek’s business. With tariff rates and other factors constantly changing, they couldn’t keep up. In a single day, Incorta dashboards with granular detail were created to deliver robust insights across the entire business. Nortek was able to implement thousands of targeted, strategic actions across their global supply chain that resulted in better outcomes for their customers, suppliers and business.
