Enterprise Resource Planning
A large amount of business data has a geographic component that can be utilized to visualize and analyze information and display it on a map. Integrating GIS and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) allows users to turn rows and columns of tabular data into maps for spatially visualizing and analyzing data. GIS enhances ERP with tools for making better decisions and maximizing the return on information technology investments.
The power of ERP including adapting to market changes, sensing and responding to customer requirements and extending processes beyond the organization, is further enhanced with the integration of GIS software. This integration allows users to translate data stored in various databases into a standard, seamless environment that boosts productivity, provides cost savings, and streamlines work flows.
Esri works closely with SAP, the worldwide market leader in ERP, to offer organizations multiple integration points between their GIS and ERP software. In addition, Esri Business Partner, CyberTech Systems offers an application to integrate Esri and SAP software. These relationships enhance the power of GIS and ERP, allowing users to view, understand, question, interpret and visualize data in ways not possible through a spreadsheet or table.
