SAP BI – The Solution at a Glance : 

SAP Business Intelligence is an enterprise-class, complete, open and integrated solution that delivers actionable insights. SAP BI – The Solution at a Glance Data acquisition, data warehousing, OLAP, planning framework, BI tools, dashboards and analytical applications; with pre-configured content using best-practice models. Open, well documented APIs and interfaces along with full functionality to integrate structured and unstructured, heterogeneous data Scalable and reliable BI solution that is tightly integrated with SAP NetWeaver, source transactional systems and partner’s complementary tools Support decision-making requirements of the entire enterprise regardless of data sources of access methods Convert data into information, and ensure information is delivered at the right time to the right person in the right format to support business decision making.

Pain Points, Customers without a BI Solution : 

Pain Points, Customers without a BI Solution No central access: Data relelavnt for decision-making are spread in different systems across the IT landscape. Analyses are time consuming and not always consistent. Time Consuming: Often, decision makers have to spend too much time on finding relevant, timely information before they can even analyze it. Bad Performance: The response time of complex analyses in operational systems is often not acceptable. Complexity / IT-Dependency: Transactional systems often require additional programming efforts to retrieve relevant information. Employees without programming know-how are not able to run ad-hoc analyses. Missing business process support: Exceptions are not alerted to those who should know.

The Value of SAP BI : 

The Value of SAP BI Completeness: End-to-end BI solution incorporating data warehousing, OLAP, data mining, business intelligence tools and pre-defined business content. Openness: Allows to incorporate data from heterogeneous systems. Supports industry standards such as XML for Analysis or ODBO for reporting and analysis. Performance/Scalability: A proven solution with that generated and loaded a 5.5 Tb data warehouse. Business Orientation: Integrates business processes. Provides a centralized metadata repository with a consistent business semantic. Ready-to go templates and best-practices – horizontal and vertical business content. Actionable Information: Supports decision-making requirements of every user.
