Silvon Software (http://silvon.com), a Business Intelligence Analytics provider for manufacturers and distributors announces today the launch of their new BI Blog The Intelligent Enterprise. The blog can be found at http://www.silvon.com/blog/.
Mike Hennel, CEO of Silvon, says “Our mission is to help our clients improve their operational-level visibility and subsequently drive more intelligent and successful businesses. The Intelligent Enterprise is directed specifically at manufacturers and distributors so they can learn how to really pull the most possible value out of their business intelligence software. Having the software in place in only the first step; you need to know how to leverage it for your own business.”
The Intelligent Enterprise was created as an information hub to Sales, Marketing, Finance, Supply Chain, Operations and IT professionals for sharing business intelligence knowledge, insights and best practices. Much of the content stems from Silvon’s knowledge and long-standing domain expertise in the BI arena. Silvon is specifically committed to business intelligence for manufacturers and distributors in the food, beverage and CPG industries, publishing, general manufacturing, distribution and retail industries.
The Intelligent Enterprise will focus on topics and issues that these types of companies face on a day-to-day basis and how business intelligence solutions can help overcome those common pain points.
Blog postings on The Intelligent Enterprise will fall into one of these areas:
Intelligent Analytics – Offering tips and best practices for analyzing not only sales information, but all other operational data that a customer collects across their supply chain. Readers will learn how to use this information to do a better job at demand forecasting, sales planning, sales and operations planning, and inventory modeling. Silvon will also discuss trends and techniques related to more advanced predictive analytics like statistics-based modeling.
Intelligent Technology – Highlighting numerous considerations related to the technology that supports business intelligence systems. Silvon will discuss the impact of hardware on BI implementations, considerations related to the use of Microsoft SQL Server and other database releases, and some thoughts on Microsoft Office integration.
Intelligent Deployment – Exploring a number of approaches for implementing and maintaining sales, inventory, customer, supplier, production and other analytic applications. Silvon will also share some best practices in BI deployment strategies.
For Silvon Customers Only – A special section on The Intelligent Enterprise is devoted especially to existing new users of Silvon’s Stratum™ software.
