Bamcentric has the capability of extracting data from multiple business systems from multiple vendors from multiple platforms - and from multiple locations. In addition, Bamcentric can deliver the alerts to managers in the most appropriate form and in real-time: for a production supervisor this may mean an SMS text on his mobile telephone, or for a field sales person this may mean an email, for a plant manager this may mean a dashboard with production exceptions, graphics and KPIs.
Unlike snapshot solutions, where data is exported at specific moments in time, Bamcentric provides ongoing information on business change and activity. Bamcentric is a “non-invasive” technology because it requires no changes to operational systems and it’s also “technology neutral” due to its independency of the underlying technologies already in place.
The non-invasive, technology neutral aspect of Bamcentric significantly reduces implementation costs, particularly compared with ERP or BPM applications. The principle of exception reporting that Bamcentric implements has huge acceptance in the business community as a low-risk approach to enhancing business information quality.
Bamcentric fills the gap between strategic data generated by operational systems such as ERP, CRM, SCM, BPM and business intelligence (BI) tools and the need for “right-now” tactical information. Bamcentric can combine information coming through Big Data enablers like Apache Hadoop and HBase, and the "NoSQL" class of databases including MongoDB (document stores) and Cassandra (key-values).
BAM software has the ability to send alerts to any device, providing a great deal of scope to share important information with partners. For example, via SMS on mobile phones, the sales force could be alerted to products experiencing higher than expected demand, thus enabling them to manage customer expectations of the product’s short-term availability. Managers can receive email messages with the business exceptions in place; sales managers can see all exceptions trough dashboards containing graphics and KPIs.
Bamcentric combines a very high degree of automation of process monitoring with sophisticated predictive technologies to identify problems and opportunities, which are then delivered as exception reports. A system of alerts provides management with near-real-time information, delivering all the facts required to take immediate action.
Bamcentric can be extended to and integrated with business modeling tools such as Cognos, Business Objects, MicroStrategy, Crystal Reports, and many others. The powerful trend analysis tools available in classic business intelligence tools are an excellent companion to the real-time exception reporting available from Bamcentric.
