Data Warehousing / Data Mining
Enterprises typically have plenty of data about their customers, products, and sales orders in different disparate systems. The data could provide significant competitive advantage if it could all be pulled together into valuable information that can lead an organization to improved decision making and greater profits. Data warehousing presents the possibility of linking employees, business partners and customers into an information supply chain resulting in reduced costs, enterprise productivity gains, and better, well-informed decisions.
