Unleash Collective Insight and Implement Analytics Across the Business

  1. 1. Real People, Real Insights How to implement analytics across the business
  2. 2. Delivering Collective Insight It’s the CIO’s responsibility to improve IT service levels for the business while driving out costs and helping the business deliver on its strategic objectives. That’s a challenge, though, when data is extracted from different sources and kept in silos resulting in information delay and limited insight. The solution? Putting the power of all your data in users’ own hands. By giving business users a platform on which they can collect their own content and get answers to their questions, you empower them to find their own actionable insights, freeing you to focus on driving innovation. “The eternal challenge of every CIO is that there is always more demand than you have capacity for, and you can never deliver fast enough.” - Michael Golz, CIO Americas, SAP 2
  3. 3. Sharpening Sales Forecasting Regular, accurate sales forecasting is vital for managing any business successfully. Analytics solutions from SAP built on an in-memory computing platform can transform the quality and speed of this critical activity. Before • Data extracted from different sources at different times and aggregated • Many different data definitions • More time spent on maintaining reporting system than analyzing data • Data quality a major concern After • Data from any source is pulled and analyzed in real time • All reporting available via mobile devices • Any question can be asked against trusted data • Users can get answers to questions themselves 3
  4. 4. Smarter Marketing Every day your company collects vast amounts of data about your customers across multiple channels. Using real-time predictive analytics, marketers and sales people can now mix and match this information against known customers, run ad hoc reports, and target group selections to anticipate what customers are likely to want in the future. From the lead to the sale, predictive analytics can help your company engage in intelligent interactions with customers and guide it in taking the next best step in bringing customers closer to the decision to buy. 4
  5. 5. Transforming BI Strategy There’s a reason why BI stands for business intelligence – people are the real core of BI technology. A real-time data platform can empower users to leverage all of their data and apply advanced predictive analytics to more of their information and processes, enabling them to confidently make more forward-thinking decisions. “We are bringing analytics directly into our SAP software, which delivers very high performance that allows us to slice and dice millions of records and deliver more accurate and informed insights for our users.” - David Poisson, BI Director, Business Innovation and Application Services, SAP 5
  6. 6. Top Tips Responsible for introducing new solutions within SAP, David Poisson, BI director of Business Innovation and Application Services at SAP, gives his top five tips on what’s needed to convince business users of the value of new technologies and the best way to deploy these solutions and gain acceptance: Focus on understanding users’ concerns and develop solutions that solve business problems Identify key influencers and start communicating with them early on Improve adoption and buy-in of mobile technology by creating apps quickly for key influencers Use agile methodologies to deliver quality solutions quickly to gain enthusiastic user adoption Think carefully about the data layer and where it’s best to place it before starting to develop analytics solutions 1 2 3 4 5 6
  7. 7. Streamlining Forecast Reporting For many organizations, reporting takes a lot of time and there can be inconsistencies in the data and the way it is presented. Leveraging the latest thinking in information design and combining it with analytics, cloud, and mobile technologies can enable you to make reporting faster, more accurate, and easier to assimilate. Before • Multiple reporting standards and procedures • Different layouts, terminology, and naming • Varying information density • Difficulty comparing information between reports After • One common reporting standard • Consistent layouts, terminology, and naming across reports, dashboards, and graphs • Standardized information density • Use of industry standards for information design 7
