Business intelligence is the art of sifting through large amounts of data, quickly extracting pertinent information, and turning that information into knowledge from which timely actions can be taken. So, how does this all happen? Enterprise Resource Planning Systems (ERPS), such as our M-Pathways system, are used to capture and store data and are considered the backbone of data processing for many organizations. M-Pathways contains thousands of tables with hundreds of elements and extremely complex data relationships. Data warehousing technologies help us organize, store, and analyze the data in a way that allows us to generate simple reports.
