Abstract

Internationally, innovation and technology are driving change through concepts such as ‘Industry 4.0’. However, due to various constraints, South Africa is lagging behind in this transformation Furthermore, local industry generates large amounts of data that could contribute to a positive transformation. Data analytics, in the form of reporting, may therefore present a workable alternative to understand better the intricate nature of real-world operations This paper identifies four qualities for the practical application of data analytics, with the aim of intelligent reporting. The four qualities are focus area, data availability, analytics, and visualisation. Research on each quality shows that they have various levels. A comprehensive literature review supports these findings Forty studies are included that were selected through a process of relevant research criteria. A case study is presented to show how the four qualities contribute to the development of intelligent reports as an objective representation of industry performance.

Internasionaal dryf innovasie en tegnologie verandering deur konsepte soos Industrie 4.0. Weens verskeie beperkings is Suid Afrika egter agter in hierdie transformasie. Verder genereer die plaaslike industrie groot hoeveelhede data wat kan bydrae tot positiewe transformasie. Data analise, in die vorm van verslaggewing, kan ʼn werkbare alternatief bied om die ingewikkelde aard van werklike prosesse beter te verstaan. Hierdie artikel identifiseer vier kwaliteite vir die praktiese toepassing van data analise met die doel van intelligente verslaggewing. Die vier eienskappe is onderskeidelik fokusarea, beskikbaarheid van data data analise en visualisering. Navorsing oor elke kwaliteit toon dat hulle uit verskillende vlakke bestaan. ʼn Deeglike literatuurstudie ondersteun hierdie bevindings. Veertig studies is ingesluit wat geselekteer is deur ʼn proses van toepaslike navorsingskriteria. Gevallestudie word aangebied om te illustreer hoe die vier eienskappe bydrae tot die ontwikkeling van intelligente verslae.
