Reporting and analytics from IBM and Oracle

The challenge

Gain access to cross-functional data
Do you have access to all of the information you need to make the right strategic decisions for your business? Is data located in different systems, leaving you with no single view of your business? The reporting and analytics solution from IBM and Oracle can help you eliminate multiple data silos. Gain more trust in your data. Broaden access to vital information to produce more accurate, consistent and reliable reports that can help you make better business decisions.

Many of the world's largest organisations, including 85% of the Fortune 500 rely on Oracle's Enterprise Performance Management solutions to meet their complex and ever changing reporting requirements while also lowering the cost of compliance and delivering an unprecedented level of financial data quality. This allows these organisations to report to stakeholders in a timely and accurate manner and provides a level of governance, visibility, and transparency into the financial close and reporting cycle that enables management to be confident in the numbers they report to stakeholders.

The solution

Make more informed decisions
We can help you reduce the cost of the systems you use to produce reports while also lowering risks related to inaccuracies in your data. By combining IBM's expertise in reporting processes, knowledge of data sources and industry experience with Oracle Business Intelligence (BI) we can help you achieve short-term success to set you up for long-term sustainability.

We can apply Oracle's scalable reporting toolset to IBM's proven data models, reporting methodologies and insights to create a streamlined reporting environment. Oracle's easily configured solutions support management reporting of key financial and operational metrics. Statutory reporting is Generally Accepted Accounting Principals (GAAP), International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and Extensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) compliant. Because the data models and reports are pre-built, IBM can easily integrate them into your existing processes to quickly deliver value to your business.

IBM also brings functional and industry-specific knowledge of how companies need to use their data, and we are able to architect solutions based on this knowledge. We can help you implement Oracle BI, which delivers pre-built data models with pre-defined dashboards that are based on industry or functional best practices, and cut across all areas of your business, including sales, services, marketing, operations, finance and human resources.

Our solution can also help you realise your long-term vision faster. With IBM's expertise in data modeling and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, we have the knowledge to help you customise financial, operational and management reporting to deliver the most value to your business. We can help you identify gaps between the pre-built models and your specific needs, and then tailor the data models and reports to address those requirements.
