For corporate management, access to current and reliable data is fundamental. This is the only way to gain important insights and derive the right measures for action. Automated and meaningful dashboards support this and provide a quick overview of whether company-relevant KPIs are being met and what the appropriate measures are to counteract an unwanted development. Self-service tools support the departments in accessing current data independently of IT and in creating analyses and reports on their own. Only those who recognise trends at an early stage and react quickly to them will remain competitive in today's highly dynamic world.
In contrast to standard reporting, dashboarding prepares key figures graphically in order to report by means of appealing dashboards.
Before dashboards can be created, it is important to structure and homogenize the existing data in order to make it as uncomplicated as possible for front-end tools to use. The more structured the data is, the easier it is to subsequent upload, for example to the SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC). SAP's front-end tool is ideal for creating appealing dashboards or reports. These can then be viewed on the move or on the desktop and can also be shared across the company.
The focus here is less on the detailed presentation of data, but rather on creating a snapshot of a large amount of data graphically to get an overall impression.
In order to analyze large and complex amounts of data, gain insights and make data-based decisions, both data visualization methods and software solutions in the form of BI platforms are necessary. Especially in the age of Big Data, data visualization is becoming increasingly important in order to present the large amount of data collected daily in a comprehensible way, to highlight important information, to recognize trends, etc. The focus here is also on the analysis of large and complex data volumes. The focus here is also on automation in order to increase the efficiency and quality of the data. Data visualization offers companies numerous advantages, such as:
Prepare your data in clear market analyses and reports and present the results to management in attractive dashboards. Access real-time metrics and save time not only in data preparation but also in reporting.
React quickly to changing key figures and always keep an eye on the performance data and risks of your suppliers. Display collected data on a uniform interface and evaluate questions. Intuitive dashboards allow you to quickly identify trends, derive forecasts and develop appropriate recommendations for action.
Say goodbye to manual data preparation processes. Consolidate your company data automatically and save resources and time when creating analyses or reports. This way, the specialist department can concentrate on strategic aspects and does not have to deal with the time-consuming consolidation of different Excel sheets or the presentation of different planned measures.
Always keep an eye on your sales figures and create reliable forecasts. Sales staff can access the data they need regardless of their location or device. Individual sales staff can create sales and revenue forecasts themselves and also include prices, conditions and net values. Visualize the results in intuitive dashboards and derive recommendations for action.
When it comes to reporting, a distinction is made between standard reporting, ad-hoc reporting (=BI Self-Service) and operational reporting.
Reports are played out in a time-controlled manner
Report content and layout is standardized
Reports are predefined and regularly supplied with current data and distributed
Presentation: Tables and common chart types
Interactive analysis of the data is not included in the process
The SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) offers a central cloud platform as a holistic solution for planning, analysis and reporting. With the help of SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC), data can be modelled intuitively and presented in attractive dashboards. The front-end tool allows decentralised use and ensures a uniform data basis and a sound basis for decision-making throughout the company.
The SAP Data Warehouse Cloud as a service in the cloud is strongly aimed at specialist departments. In particular, those who value the topic of "self-service" BI and want to independently take care of "data management" in their environment. The Data Warehouse Cloud acts as an interface between IT and the business department. The Data Warehouse Cloud allows the connection of a wide variety of data sources and access to data in real time. Decision-makers can react quickly to changes thanks to reliable data. In addition, the Data Warehouse Cloud includes the classic Analytics Cloud to cover front-end topics.
