Leading ERPs Can Do Even More with Advanced AI and Analytics

As the future speeds toward us, it’s easy to miss the behind-the-scenes convergence of business processes, new technology, and computing power that many forward-thinking organizations are taking advantage of to execute mission critical objectives in smarter, faster and more accurate ways.

Innovative adopters from well-known international brands, federal agencies, state, and local public sector organizations all have a competitive edge, and it makes a difference. This edge can automate human resource functions; provide insight into employee or customer behavior; predict the probability of maintenance failure on a key piece of factory equipment; help assign critical resources to respond to a disaster; and much more.

How do they do it?

You might expect a long explanation, but it’s much simpler than that...

They invest in the latest Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Solutions and learn how to capitalize on these solutions’ capabilities.

The ERP marketplace has dramatically changed over the last few years. There is now a lower cost to operate and maintain Cloud-based products with intelligent tools based on the latest analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning advances.

Leading ERP Solutions:

Workday Prism Analytics

Part of Workday’s ERP, Workday Prism Analytics blends transactional and high-volume external operational data with advanced and intelligent data analysis tools. It allows users to manage, prepare, govern, trace, and publish data for reporting and analysis This provides actionable insight and information needed to make better, more informed decisions.

Get a full picture of your transactions — all in one system. Workday Prism Analytics allows users to analyze with unlimited operational dimensionality. Users can blend emergency response, asset and property management, survey, and other data from non-Workday systems with project, grant, funds, and revenue data to get full insight into cost and effort. This provides rich detail that is often dropped—or never included—when aggregating data for posting to your general ledger.

On a practical level, it can help answer questions like:

  • Which car rental, airlines and hotels make up the largest portion of our travel expenses?

  • Where are we exposed to potential misuse of expense and travel?

  • Who has access to conflicting business processes (for example, approving spend and selecting a vendor)?

  • How are emergency response call volumes and response time trending relative to cost, location, and head count?

  • Which assets are most expensive to maintain based on cost by asset type or location?

  • What areas have the most wasteful spend and why?

  • What is the energy use by cost and location?

  • Which departments are performing most favorably against budget?

Workday Prism Analytics can become a single source of data truth. Its automated and highly effective pattern-detection capabilities look for important changes that a person might miss, and its machine learning tools can help predict important data and insights.
