Implementing ERP Solutions Ensuring Optimum ROI
ERP has been significantly implemented for it to be viewed as a proven practice. It has potentially been one of the most popular business management systems, contributing benefits of real-time capabilities and flawless communication for business in large enterprises and government organizations. But it has a nasty reputation for being challenging especially if it is not implemented right. What we need is realistic implementations. With every organization competing against each other rushing to catch up that they do not notice the potential risks they face during implementation. This leads to a delay in getting the solution in place. Even a fraction of delay can lead to repercussions. It will definitely prove to be an expensive investment and one will feel the delay as a prolonged one. In fact, studies conducted revealed that 9 out of 10 implementations across the globe take longer than planned. So the first and foremost step that any organization would take is to find a vendor that will assist them to implement ERP without much delay, to reap the most benefits out of this investment.

As a result of which the government is emphasizing on seamless integration of various departments and jurisdictions.

Seamlessly Addressing Security Concerns OR Ensuring Secure Identity
Naesys Dimensions won the prestigious UIDAI SOC (Security Operation Centre) order to install and commission the RSA SA (Security Analytics) in high available mode where UIDAI is responsible of taking care of all Indian citizens’ Unique ID (Adhar card). This being a national matter of importance since the data is very confidential and sensitive and must be protected by all means necessary from security breaches. The data is distributed across different physical locations spread across the nation. Different SIEM (Security Incident and Event Monitoring) were evaluated post which UIDAI authority zeroed on RSA SA (Security Analytics) to address the above requirements.
Attending to the Challenges of BI Solutions
The main challenge of BI solutions is the centralized architecture which translates to a lot of potentially sensitive data getting aggregated at one place. This data is used by many people. Security breaches can originate from internal sources as well as external sources. The result can be a major “data leak” of sensitive corporate operational data such as data related to sales, finance etc. While deploying Naesys’ BI solutions, the company works along with their customers to identify which BI data is considered sensitive and what measures are required to protect the same. The access of BI data to the users is allowed based on their role and functions in the organization. Naesys also works on the encryption using various industry standards when there is data transmission involved. Furthermore, the company assists their customers to make policies regarding data backup, data retention, data storage etc.
