Infor is a huge global business – it’s an international name in enterprise software and the largest privately held technology provider in the world. If you haven’t come across Infor then its primary role is to provide business applications – such as ERP, CRM, BI, SCM and other industry-focused business software solutions – via the cloud. Info is well known for two key platforms and one of them in particular – Info BI (Business Intelligence) – is an option that every business should consider.
Why Infor BI is a great idea
The Infor BI product is a hybrid business intelligence solution that offers any organisation a range of tools and features that are focused on making the most of business information. From integration and analysis through to presentation, the platform contains solutions that should make it easier to use key information to make better business decisions. It’s a product that is aimed at mid and large size businesses across all industries and sectors and which has the power to help organisations transform the way that data is collected and managed and analysis conducted.
What can Infor BI be used for?
In a recent survey, it was found that the platform was currently most used for standard/enterprise reporting. 83% of respondents were using it for budgeting and planning, 62% for basic data analysis and 38% for financial consolidation. Most of those using Infor BI planned to expand the way that the platform was integrated into their business in the near future to make the most of the broad range of features available.
