Techopedia explains Enterprise Report Management

Enterprise report management has been adopted by many organizations. In fact, many companies have positioned themselves as enterprise report management vendors.

Metrics, dashboards and balanced scorecards are considered while preparing enterprise reports. In many companies, performance is managed through metrics. Key performance indicators (KPIs) are considered outcome-oriented metrics for internal management. Service-level agreements are taken into account for external groups.

A gamut of indicators can be placed on a dashboard, which can be customized by users. The metrics are also marked with red, orange and green lights to determine potential areas for improvement.

The balanced scorecard method was developed by Robert S. Kaplan in conjunction with U.S. consultants Nolan-Norton to indicate business performance, process and growth opportunities.
