Business Intelligence (BI) reporting and the extract, transform, and load (ETL) processes that support it are vital to equipping corporate decision makers with the information they need to maintain and improve business performance, successfully scale up as their businesses grow, and identify and implement new business initiatives and strategies. Getting current, accurate data in a timely manner is essential to helping ensure that the processes that move data from source to target systems run smoothly and quickly and that any errors are identified and resolved rapidly, without having IT staff waste valuable time finding and fixing issues manually.
This document examines five frequently encountered BI and ETL process management pain points that can affect the accuracy and timeliness of vital enterprise data delivery. This includes dashboards, interactive analytics, and standard reports, which are often used to make far-reaching business decisions. This document also discusses how each of these pain points can be successfully managed using process automation technology.
