In today’s “Age of the Customer,” organizations that can quickly harness Big Data to make fast decisions will outperform their competitors.
Organizations have to transform their data into strategic assets that will allow better decision-making for optimum business outcomes. The best way to do that is by using analytics tools to collect massive amounts of big data, extract meaning from that data and use it to drive real growth.
Business analytics can help firms unleash the power of collective insight by delivering enterprise business intelligence, agile visualizations, and advanced predictive analytics to all users – on any device or platform.
Currently, the SAP Business Warehouse (BW) remains the enterprise data warehouse for most organizations running SAP ERP (enterprise resource planning). The problem is that SAP BW can’t move forward into the age of big data analytics because it’s struggling to meet existing business needs.
While it’s true that the SAP BW holds critical data, organizations have to be able to use that data to become more competitive.
Agility is needed to support a fast-moving business. However, the very strength of SAP BW – an enterprise data warehouse with a layered, scalable architecture and robust data governance – also impedes agility. And adequate access to SAP BW data remains a challenge for many companies.
The time it takes to gather requirements, add data sources, extend the data model, as well as develop, test and deliver the dashboard is too long. The fastest way to unlock the full business value of SAP Business Warehouse is with agile analytics.
