Real-Time Financial Analytics
KPI has developed a pre-built analytic application specifically designed for real-time enterprise financial analysis
Traditional business intelligence is based on daily refresh of a data warehouse and is geared towards analytical reporting. Organizations also need operational reporting that is real-time in nature but do not have the ability to wait for a data refresh during critical business times like the financial close process.
KPI Partners has developed a pre-packaged real-time finance solution for use with major ERP platforms. Using the solution with systems such as Oracle E-Business Suite enables any organization to monitor and analyze financial health throughout the organization.
"Organizations often view their ability to conduct a fast, high-quality close as a competitive advantage, rather than simply as a regulatory obligation."
KPI’s Real-Time Financial Analytics offers the capability of presenting real-time transactional information side-by-side with historical information in a single analytical environment. The application enables the presentation of up-to-the-minute reporting of key transactions while maintaining a proper level of performance for operational processing.
Real-Time Financial Close

- What shipments haven’t been invoiced?
- Do my subsystems balance with the General Ledger?
- Any changes to fixed assets that impact depreciation?
- Which customers have credit limit issues?
- Is my ledger in balance after the latest posting?
