First implemented in 2008 in the global ERP system of a large multinational, Refresh™ is today the leading software for automatically tagging and cleansing products and services inside enterprise systems. This is a very exciting and relatively new Big Data and Machine Learning application for the Enterprise.
Apart from being an obvious buzzword of the moment, there is indeed real value in Enterprise Big Data and A.I. But the real science of big data is not so much about the data itself - it's more about the algorithmic automation that powers the tagging of each individual material line item to your intended standards. Not all algorithms are created equal; you need a business-specific one that's tried and tested on millions of lines over many years in systems similar to yours. Refresh presents a unique opportunity for IT teams to quickly get involved in a proven Big Data technology project delivering tangible business benefits.
For a true lowest total cost of ownership, any approach you choose should re-use your existing IT assets, not demand new ones. For a Refresh project, no additional hardware is needed, no custom development is needed and your existing system makes calls to Refresh, not the other way around so there are no security concerns. Of course, there are no modifications to standard ERP programs. Since all of these often hidden support costs are minimized by the software design, your costs and risks are much lower than any other approach. IT’s overall headcount for a typical Refresh project is only a few days so your already stretched IT teams are unaffected.
The Refresh Software is currently being used at many leading companies and governments running for example SAP, Oracle, and other leading ERP systems. Take a look at how the global leader in fine paper, the world's largest mining and commodities company, and a leading chemical giant are now using Refresh™ to analyze and successfully drive out new savings from multiple systems. Also, medium-sized companies ranging from a top United States agri-business running SAP and ARIBA through to Oxford University running Oracle have all unlocked savings from their data in the past year.
