Over the past few months we’ve been working on an interesting project with the publishing company Wiley. Wiley publish a world famous brand of books known as the ‘For Dummies Guides’ which help to simplify complex subjects into an easy to consume format.
The subject of Big Data Analytics has been around for a few years now and this is a complex subject that could be simplified to allow anyone in an enterprise to understand how to leverage the technology. OpenText™ Business Network has a solution Trading Grid Analytics that provides an intuitive environment for companies to understand what is going on across their supply chain operations. But if you are new to the area of analytics and you want to understand how this technology can provide meaningful insights into your supply chain operations, where should you start?
This was really the objective of this eBook, to provide an introduction and easy-to-read guide on why companies should leverage analytics across a supply chain. The ebook guides you on how to identify the metrics to measure across your supply chain, how analytics can benefit your supply chain and the book offers a six stage guide on how to get started. To download your own copy of our eBook click here or on the image below.
Our next book will be B2B Managed Services For Dummies, a high level introduction to outsourcing B2B integration to a trusted partner. I hope to have this book completed at the end of November will post a blog to introduce it then.
In addition to the Supply Chain Analytics For Dummies Guide we have recently released another book called “EIM in the Cloud For Dummies Guide”. This book provides a high level introduction to Enterprise Information Management and how OpenText EIM solutions help to enable the digital business. The book discusses each of our six key ground of EIM solutions and will be available to download soon, check back here shortly for the link. Hope you enjoy these books!
You might also want to take a test drive of our analytics environment. We have a free trial environment of our Trading Grid Analytics solution and you can register for the free trial here. The environment will enable you to see how analytics can help you to understand a number of different supply chain-focused metrics such as ASN Timeliness, Delivery Timeliness, Invoiced Amount and Transaction Volumes by Trading Partner.
Hopefully when you have read the eBook and taken the free trial you will have a good understanding of how a supply chain focused analytics environment can benefit your business.
