SAP Analytics – Extracting Value from Data

Improve the performance of your organization by bridging the gap between data and decisions.

For Business Analytics to Work, You Need a Sound Strategy

With the emergence of big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence and machine learning, the role of analytics has been elevated to center stage. The winners in the modern world are those who can give all their employees, partners and customers immediate access to the most relevant information. But winning requires more than answering tough questions, understanding the business at every turn, and seizing opportunities before your rivals do. It’s also about creating value and ROI with every decision you make.

A strategic approach to analytics will provide the key to unlocking the value in your data – enabling you to gain unprecedented insights, bridge the gap between analysis and business outcomes, and combine the power of big data with analytics to drive business success.

Deliver Faster, More Reliable Results with Hybrid Planning

In the digital economy, businesses that want to remain competitive will need more analytics capabilities than traditional, stand-alone analytics platforms can provide. They will need to dramatically increase the user adoption and penetration of analytics into the organization and empower more business users to make better, insight-driven decisions.

The Changing Face of Business Intelligence and Analytics

The traditional approach to delivering Business Intelligence is being challenged. BI and analytics solutions are evolving at a rapid pace – with many organizations leveraging modern, agile platforms to create business value. The ability to reason, plan, predict and solve issues with deeper insights from increasingly diverse data sets is opening up a whole new world of opportunity as well as defining new methods and approaches. But to enable such business capacity founded on knowledge and innovation, the following three areas require close attention:

The Modern Data Platform

Current trends are causing a proliferation of data. Traditional data warehouses cannot handle this unprecedented volume and variety of information.

Operational BI

Deliver relevant, factual and timely information that is mobile, highly interactive and tailored to user needs.

Strategic & Advanced Analytics

Use data to understand customers and their environment in far greater depth.

Information-driven organizations are more productive: 30% reduced safety issues with predictive analytics, 97% reduction in report creation time.

Hybrid Analytics

As businesses evaluate how to improve their current analytics and data processing capabilities, many see the adoption of more cloud capabilities as the logical next step.
