The tool enables customers to create digital supply chains. Birst Networked BI supports collaboration with international business processes as well as external customers and suppliers on transparently governed data. Real-time visibility allows users to adjust to changes in supply and demand. Transparent governance enables the impact of their decisions to be updated consistently across the ecosystem. Extranet and external data-blending capabilities let customers, suppliers and employees bring their own data into the network without affecting the centrally controlled plan. All parties can share forecasts, anticipate changes and plan for scenarios. Birst automatically aggregates data from multiple sources, then refines and models it so that information can be viewed in one place. In the process, operations managers gain visibility into raw material and sales forecasts, logistics tracking ad delivery, so that they can adjust supply and shorten lead times without maintaining buffer inventory.
