The components of a flexible and scalable next-generation analytical solution include:
- Key performance indicators (KPIs) to drive improvement
- An enterprise information model for data management
- Integrated enterprise applications that support an enterprise service bus (ESB) for seamless process flow
- Modern database machines that combine data warehouse and online transaction processing for cost-effective data storage and access
