Q: How can companies bet- ter leverage their traditional enterprise system data? A: Real estate companies have vast amounts of data locked up in their enterprise systems, but frequently infor- mation is tied to a particular function. New analytical tools enable companies to expose, extract and integrate some of that previously “separated” detail. IBS is using Datawatch Corporation’s report mining tool, Datawatch Desktop™, to gather numbers off various system reports into a rela- tional database that enables deeper analysis. Datawatch Server then enables the visu- alization and sharing of the results. For example, we have a cli- ent who wanted a single-line cash position report by entity, including entity name, opening cash balance, checks written, depositsmade, ending cash bal- ance, current and over-30-day AP information, and current and over-30-day AR informa- tion. Of course, all of this in- formation is already available in the system – but on nine dif- ferent reports. The Datawatch products allow us to gather facts from each report, and re-model the output by entity with the ability to drill back down to the original source data. This is not only cool but provides quick ROI for today’s information-hungry property owners and operators. n
