Self Service BI


Self Service Dashboards

With the help of stories, SAP users can also create their own dashboards. Scripting skills are not required, but it is recommended that the IT department set up templates and governance once only. Thanks to in-memory technology from SAP HANA and guided machine learning, you as a user receive meaningful analyses . By integrating local Excel files, the SAC Stories allow you a quick and easy analysis.

Predictive Analytics

By connecting to the SAP HANA Cloud Platform (HCP), patterns and relationships between key figures and dimensions can be identified and if-then scenarios can be mapped. But please note: Forecasting strongly depends on the quality of the data and the knowledge gained by the user himself.

A platform not only for the IT department

SAP Analytics Cloud is designed in such a way that even power users can create their own plans, dashboards and analyses easily and without script knowledge.

Data diversity on a uniform platform

In SAP Analytics Cloud, not only data from SAP HANA or SAP BW can be imported or connected live from the SAP Cloud platform, but also Excel, other file formats and system connections (e.g. OData or GDrive) can be used. However, SAP Analytics Cloud not only offers a variety of data selection options, but also the uniform platform that many have been longing for and which integrates all tools.

Security

Of course, the topic of security plays a prominent role in sensitive company data. SAP Analytics Cloud offers security for your company data in several ways. On the one hand, all data is processed in accordance with GDPR / DSGVO, and on the other hand, customers can choose the location of their hosting data center, with which SAP in turn concludes a data processing contract in every case. In SAP Analytics Cloud, your sensitive data never leaves the corporate network, only metadata is exchanged with the cloud.

Architecture

This new platform can provide all components for an advanced analytics solution. SAP Analytics Cloud is based on SAP HANA and uses the SAP HANA Cloud Platform with its data storage, cloud connectors and corresponding operational functions. Data can be provided as Live Data Connection, Import Data Connection (e.g. Connection to an SAP BW system) or Local Files.
