Couple of years ago, at IOD, Nestle CIO said, enterprises are moving from "reporting model" to "tooling model".
What does that mean? Executives are no longer satisfied with simply using canned reports and taking decisions on it.
They need to have drill down and interact with the data to get the right data to make right decision in real time.
While this trend has been going on for some years, it took incredible investment from CIO and the organization to get
all the pieces together and working together.That's where Pronto Software comes in.
They have built an incredible award winning ERP application suite
Pronto has complete ERP solution with Informix server and have tightly integrated Cognos BI into the same solution.
From asset management to analytics, distribution to data intelligence, financials to forecasting -- It's all in there.
In this solution, not only they run the business, they help analysts have a conversation with the real-data in real time.
This helps SMB and enterprise, "find their moment"!
At IOD Conference in Las wegas, Wednesday, Oct 24th. 2.30 to 3.30PM, Chad Gates, Senior Development Manager at Pronto
will be talking about this solution and how they've integrated the stack. Should be very interesting.
Look up for session 4202: Pronto Xi, Informix and IBM Cognos 10 – Designing integrated ERP and real-time BI for Mid-Market:
