To be a food or beverage manufacturer is to face enormous amounts of risk. These are highly regulated industries in which the slightest mistake could actually cost customers their lives, and penalties for failing to comply with the law are jail time. On the less serious end of the spectrum, changes in customer demand are also a risk food and beverage manufacturers must navigate.
“I just spent the last three days building a report for the boss on the accept / reject rates at each inspection point. I got an order list from sales. I found paper reports on the inspections.

When defining its Business Intelligence (BI) strategy, an organization can take three different approaches, depending on which fits its needs. First, an organization can simply use the out-of-the-box (OOTB) tools that come “for free” with their ERP system. Other businesses may find that they need a third-party BI solution to get the results they are looking for from their BI initiative. Finally, organizations needing a more robust BI system can build their own custom solution.
No doubt about it, Business Intelligence (BI) is powerful. The marketplace is full of tools that can process and analyze data like never before. However, to maximize ROI of its BI initiative, an organization must make BI a natural part of doing business.
