In the enterprise software space, there’s quite a bit of chatter about 360° views. These views are tied to a specific business entity, such as customers. But what does that really mean? In the simplest sense, a 360° view gives you all the information about the specific business entity of interest. The problem is that not everyone uses the term in the same manner. Some vendors focus on the relationships between master data elements, such as all materials tied to a specific product, others focus on providing a complete view of associated transactions for a specific entity. Confusion around completeness is why you see vendors strive to differentiate by declaring their approach is different because it’s a 720° or 1080° view—what’s next 1440os?
The best part of having these blended views is that a wide range of data consumers can use them to perform different kinds of analysis. Using the same set of data means your data scientists, analysts, and any other users can begin their analyses on the same page.
Finally, customers also tell us that they don’t want to be limited to 360° views on just a handful of business entities, rather they want 360° views on any entity they desire. We’ve had customers ask us about 360° view for accounts, assets, customers, employees, items, legal entities, locations, materials, products, sensors, suppliers, and many, many more.
