Analytics

ISSUES FACING COMPANIES

Business Intelligence has grown beyond reporting applications. As organizations face the challenges of dynamic market shifts, supply chain optimization and budgetary pressures, they have increasingly turned toward analytics solutions that not only enable their operations but also drive strategic initiatives. In contrast to traditional BI reporting solutions that focus on targeted capabilities, effective BI strategies and implementations address requirements throughout all levels of the organization. From data governance to master data management, from operational reporting to analytical dashboards and mobile capabilities, BI and analytics solutions need to support the broad brush of modern information requirements. Real-time information must be available anytime and anywhere while addressing the “big data” and “open data” challenges facing organizations. These issues are not limited to large, multinational enterprises. They are faced by all organizations working to meet ever-increasing demand for information, knowledge, understanding and, if possible, wisdom, based on the popular DIKW model.

HOW SAP SOFTWARE CAN HELP

SAP offers a unique and powerful approach to the challenges of information demand through Business Analytics applications. The SAP BusinessObjectsTM solution suite provides an integrated family of BI technologies and applications that assist customers in transforming their traditional reporting and data management solutions into powerful strategic tools. Through in-memory solutions such as SAP HANA® and SAP Sybase® mobile technologies, SAP empowers organizations through instantaneously available information. Data management tools ensure data quality and governance as much as data availability. Self-service capabilities empower users and reduce demands on IT departments, while analytical and other advanced tools provide executives with a strategic view of their organization. Planning and forecasting solutions provide organizations with predictive capabilities, improving their ability to proactively address market shifts. This opens you to the world of “big data/open data” and ties information and knowledge into your business processes, making it much more valuable than a reporting system.
