Analytics and AI

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and analytics are indispensable in propelling digital transformation efforts, particularly influencing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). With the rapid progression of technology and computing power, organizations across various sectors are generating immense amounts of data daily, impacting ERP processes. The significance of this data lies in its potential to extract actionable insights, facilitate strategic planning, and drive innovation within the ERP framework. In this context, AI and analytics emerge as pivotal tools, facilitating the extraction of value from the vast amounts of data generated and collected across the enterprise, optimizing ERP functionalities. Analytics is commonly categorized into descriptive, prescriptive, diagnostic, and predictive types, enhancing the ERP landscape. AI algorithms contribute not only to predictive and prescriptive analytics but also empower companies to develop innovative ERP capabilities, exemplified by advancements such as Industry 4.0.
