In the 16th century, one of the most prominent businessmen in the Netherlands named his daughter after an island that saw twenty ships insured by him sink by its coast. He chose that name because he always wanted to remind himself of the perils that lurk at sea and the transience of success. Today’s business environment is just as volatile as it was in the 16th century. We must rely on more than just luck if we want to be successful. Luckily, we now have better tools at our disposal.
ORTEC’s Big Data Portal is a big data and analytics platform that helps you store, manipulate and analyze data so you can prepare for unlikely scenarios and even predict the best path for success. You can pull data from all sources in your company: financial reporting tools, transportation management, fleet management, your sales pipeline, ERP and CRM systems. You can also leverage data from external sources, such as shipping information, third party portals, weather and climate data. All of this and more stored in a central location that is easy to use.
With the portal, you can deploy any analytics and Big Data tool you prefer. Stream Analytics, “R”, Hadoop, Sense, Spotfire, Tableau, Mongo DB, and NoSQL. And the best thing is that it costs you and your company little to no effort. We take care of the technical implementation.
This is Analytics as a Service.
With ORTEC’s Big Data Portal you have a real time and holistic view of everything that happens in your supply chain and the impact it has on your entire organization (and the other way around). You can predict what is going to happen and plan for risky situations with confidence.
