We’ve all heard about ‘big data’ and the challenges of analyzing large volumes of business information. There are problems with data capture, storage, search, analysis, and visualization (to name a few). And, depending on how regulated your industry is, challenges are highly specific to you and your business.
For small to midsized manufacturers that compete in regulated industries like pharmaceuticals or food and beverage, batch traceability is paramount. You might think batch traceability is an obvious inclusion in any modern business management solution, but it isn’t always a standard feature. Batch traceability is a complex, multi-dimensional industry challenge that affects many parts of the business. This is probably why some enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions exclude the functionality and rely on third-party software integrations to fill the feature gap. When looking through your batch record, big data is like looking for a needle in a haystack.
