EIP is revolutionising corporate governance
- Mar 05, 2020
The way companies usually manage their business, from purchasing and sales control to personnel management, becomes obsolete as the technologies that affect these processes evolve. The digital age, which began timidly in the 20th century, is still ongoing and will impact the business universe, regardless of segment, size and address, for a long time.
As an example of this transformation, we have ERP - Enterprise Resource Planning. A concept that emerged in the 1990s, from the evolution of Material Requirements Planning (MRP and MRP II, 1970s and 1980s respectively), not only working on the material needs of a production line, but also on the integrated planning of all resources of a company, involving the financial, commercial, accounting, fiscal, etc. processes, boosting the management function caused by the high demand and increase of scale.
This era has also lagged behind technologies that have begun to digitize corporate management, such as the gigantic mainframes and the first generations of personal computers.
At the stage of the digital age we are in, considering the new business models, the speed with which information travels and the dynamic demands of customers, which managers urgently need to continue business, taking into account a much more connected and integrated, is the delivery of the right information, at the right time, to the right people.
Now imagine a management platform that goes beyond traditional ERPs, which in addition to integrating data from all corporate areas, is also integrated with other expert systems and services and is able to guide users to optimize work, ensure the assertiveness of decision-making in an intelligent way, allowing a real-time comparison with the market.
Here is a new concept called EIP - Enterprise Intelligence Platform, which consists of a complete platform, not just an ERP system. Encompasses dynamic collaboration and connectivity in an intelligent way, because it utilizes artificial intelligence mechanisms, Machine Learning, adding proactivity to corporate processes. All this, considering the user as the main focus, bringing a unique and specific journey for each function performed in search of high individual performance and organization.
In this sense, the concept of EIP is much broader because it is a platform that has the benefits of ERP and AI (artificial intelligence), as well as new technologies available such as: Big Data, Internet of Things (IoT), platforms distance learning, micro-specialist services, fintechs, collaboration and mobility solutions.
Through the application of these technologies for business purposes, EIP becomes able to integrate companies with the world in an interactive way, learning constantly from the growing volume of information available and every interaction with users. Your intelligence and ability to add value will be increasing over the years.
In other words, EIP will revolutionize corporate management, guided by technological innovation and the rational use of available resources. A new era opens up before corporations, and they have to choose whether to stay in the past or take a leap forward.
