Shippers, Retailers and their partners in global supply chains are under the constant pressure of performing real-time analytics to identify trends and patterns in cargospace, routes and rates, cost components, and regulatory factors. Managing complex supply chains inevitably requires an organization to be on top of data and intelligence so as to enable them to take decisions promptly. As a key enabler of efficient product movement, freight forwarders need to be equipped with such intelligence for their customers. The core software applications that run operations for these organizations, often need to be extended with flexible reporting and analysis to provide the necessary insights to the freight forwarders’ customer base.
The solution to the challenge is to design and implement an extension of the core application that provides organizations the capability to merge data from different sources The adjoining graphic is a representative illustration of the process of extraction, analysis and delivery of reports. The approach is non-intrusive in that existing processes and applications continue to run as usual and this reporting layer simply sits on top of/extends the rest of the IT infrastructure of the company. A typical delivery mechanism from an IT architecture perspective will be through the use of SSRS and SSIS (SQL Server Reporting Services and SQL Server Integration Services)
