Project Description:
Using a business intelligence and performance management system, ARDEC improved insight into key performance metrics and fostered quicker business decisions about its programs. Each employee has an IBM Cognos dashboard that is integrated with ARDEC's existing SAP system to display key metrics for individual projects.
