Packaged Analytics & Reports That Fit the Way You Do Business

Stratum’s integrated data model and pre-built set of business intelligence views and reports can be easily customized and extended to fit your unique analysis and reporting requirements. And when Silvon implements Stratum for you, we modify the data model to reflect your specific business terminology and anything else that may be custom to your company’s reporting initiatives. In other words, we help you gain business insights in terms you specifically understand.

How do Stratum’s packaged analytics add value?

  1. All too often, many businesses try to deliver large-scale, enterprise BI solutions that take months (or years) to develop only to find that analysts and other business users either can’t or won’t use those solutions. Stratum’s analytics provide a starting point for getting up-and-running quickly with financial and operational reporting. This starting point ensures that the metrics and reports delivered to users actually meet the needs of your business and are widely adopted.
  2. The standard views and reports that we initially deploy also provide a great way for you to validate your data, no matter how much information you have or where it’s derived from.
  3. All of Stratum’s views and reports are driven from a single hub of ERP and other internal / external data that’s made analytics-ready for you and designed to ensure accurate, “one number” reporting across your business.
