Embed digitalization, automation and ‘smart’ connected networks into every part of your manufacturing operations with SYSPRO ERP and unleash the power of industry 4.0.
Easy reporting with structured big data
ERP enabling digital transformation for manufacturers
There is no doubt that the amount of digital data generated, not only at an individual level but at an organizational level, from day-to-day is immense and can become so complex and vast that most traditional processing applications would soon become insufficient to manage, not only the storage of information, but to offer useful insights that drive meaningful results in the business.
Data analytics technologies and techniques provide a means of analyzing data sets and drawing conclusions about them to make informed business decisions. Big data analytics applications integrated with SYSPRO enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems can enable manufacturers to analyze growing volumes of structured transaction information, plus other forms of data that are often left untapped by conventional business intelligence (BI) and analytics programs. This encompasses a mix of semi-structured and unstructured data — for example, information from customer emails and survey responses, mobile phone records and machine analytics captured by sensors connected to the Internet of Things.
The Benefits of Big Data and SYSPRO
It used to be that records were lumped into two categories. In the simplest terms, data was either considered an asset or liability.
- Data as an asset considered things like intellectual property, customer and vendor lists, and some financial information—such as pricing and margins.
- Other data, including most financial (like invoices and receipts), quality metrics, and output data where considered liabilities.
Due to the expense of storage, most companies only kept what was necessary to fulfill regulatory compliance. With the decreasing price of digital storage, increased computational power, and ease of capturing information, companies are storing more data than ever before. But, until companies had a way to utilize that data, what was once categorized as a liability is still a liability and ended up as overhead. Now, mid-size manufacturers are able to invest in tools and processes that address how to use this data to increase profit and productivity and improve customer satisfaction.
SYSPRO provides technology that manages, analyze and process your business information, and provides access to relevant and critical information from anywhere at any time and on any device.
By using big data analytics with SYSPRO can point the way to the following business benefits throughout your supply chain:
- Reducing processing flaws through better detection of defects in the manufacturing/production processes
- Improved production quality
- Improved operational efficiency
- Improved customer service

In rapidly evolving markets, businesses today have no other option but to increasingly rely on analytical insights. Inundated with information, and the time it takes to correlate and gather multiple data can be tedious, often leading to errors.
