Data Analytics: Learn How to Get the Most from Your SAP Business One Data with Phocas | Partner Showcase Webcast Summary

Phocas Software presented this ASUG partner showcase webcast as part of our August 2018 webcast series on Reporting and Business Intelligence with SAP Business One. 

When it comes to business intelligence (BI) deployments, most end users — including IT professionals and C-level executives — will tell you there’s one fundamental problem: content. Content that shows your KPIs, a set of standard financial reports, and sales analysis reports you can immediately deploy to your field sales team, which they can use to generate additional revenue and boost customer engagement.

What’s more is these actionable insights and information, which need to be cost effective to build, must be delivered in a format that everyone in the organization can use — all while being easy enough for your internal teams to build on and extend with additional content that meets your business’ specific requirements.
So how do you identify and generate this content? Having the ability to explore your SAP B1 data with a data analytics solution.
