In October, we told you the story of how some of our customers are struggling with extracting SAP® for use in decision making. From that post and conversations we’ve had with customers and colleagues, it became clear that more detail was needed.
So, we just penned – ok, keyboarded — a white paper on the topic.
The white paper, Three Reasons to Unlock SAP® for Business Analytics, describes the three primary reasons organizations are tapping into SAP, extracting the data and combining it with the data from other business systems. The reasons most frequently cited are to:
- Build a comprehensive, enterprise decision support platform;
- Create data marts and analytic cubes to drive scorecards, dashboards and trend analyses; and
- Access the data – without moving it – for data discovery.
