AirQuery simplifies building analytics from Fusion Cloud ERP and other sources
The future of business is up in the cloud - at least where data management is concerned. And proof of that lies in the significant rise in companies migrating from on-premise systems to cloud-based systems like Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP. However, data migration is not as simple as a few clicks on a keyboard. It takes time and precision and requires effective data management solutions to leverage historical and current data to generate accurate reports, effectively analyze data and trends and derive insights that fuel business-boosting decisions.
The cloud migration
Why are businesses migrating data management to the cloud? Security and ease of access rank high among the reasons. However, to explain it plainly, enterprise resource planning software like Oracle Cloud ERP offers a fully integrated suite of operational and finance applications built on a common data model. They provide a single source of truth for data and significantly influence streamlining daily processes and growth-oriented decisions. Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP can integrate with other data sources like customer relationship management (CRM) systems, social media platforms, and third-party analytics tools.
Modern ERP systems offer internal controls and audit tools to protect against theft and fraud. Another check in their favor is that ERP systems are flexible and can scale markets, geographies, and businesses as they grow. And, of course, eliminating hardware installation makes them an economical choice.
What does that mean for analytics?
Effective analytics is the cornerstone of any enterprise and is a key factor in determining how it moves forward. Simply collecting data, no matter how vast or detailed, has little value unless it is properly analyzed and acted on. It is important to note that each business has unique needs, and its way of approaching the data collected and standard analytics may need to be revised.
Migrating from on-premise to cloud-based systems also complicates data analysis - especially during the transition period - as data is often split into different sources. However, Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP analytics can be simplified with systems like AirQuery. This is backed by IDC's April 2022 Business Intelligence and Analytics Survey, which stated that 54.2% of respondents agreed that BI software that can be embedded into their internal or external business applications is critical or a must-have.
However, before diving into how AirQuery can help build analytics, let's understand how building analytics works.
Building analytics with Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP data and other sources requires careful attention to data accuracy, security, and maintenance.

What makes AirQuery the right partner?
Integrated data warehouses: Rigorously tested data warehouses ensure that data is uncompromised in terms of accuracy or completeness. AirQuery uses the latest technology to set up data warehouses for Oracle Fusion Cloud analytics and address concerns about redundancy.
Data modeling: Employs a centrally managed data model that efficiently manages data across the lifecycle. AirQuery strengthens various facets of data modeling by setting up semantic layers and supporting data stewardship. It is compatible with self-service datasets and IT-managed data models, which help abstract complex data logic and substitute technical jargon with business-friendly terms. In addition, anyone within a company, even those without technical knowledge, can access and work with the data without relying on IT support.
Built-in pipelines: Integrates with any application and data source and automates end-to-end processes. The prebuilt adapters negate the need for new coding and simplify data migration to data warehouses.
Excel financial reporting: Negates the need for time-consuming manual manipulation like inputting formulas and analyzing data, thereby reducing the chances of human errors. The entire process of extracting, cleaning, and shaping raw data is automated and actioned after each data refresh. AirQuery also supports running reports directly from Excel.
Report delivery: Offers flexibility with data output in the form that works best for unique requirements. Reports can be delivered immediately or scheduled for later distribution, as required.
Drill-down capability: Facilitates data examination to individual inputs, aligning with offering a comprehensive view of the extracted data. It just takes a click of a mouse to go from, let's say, looking at a sales revenue report by a state to drill down to a particular state and a county or city within that state.
Security: Provides reporting and analytics, supports role-based access controls, and row and column-level data security. Data security is enforced at every stage. Individual employees can only view account balances for segment values they are permitted to access or require for relevant purposes.
