As organizations move increasingly to cloud-only or cloud/on-premise hybrid environments, being able to query data via graphical interfaces such as dashboards is crucial in order to provide at-a-glance, easily digestible summaries of key information.
In a hybrid world where cloud and on-premise systems co-exist, it is vital to have connectors that inter-relate such areas. Increasingly, companies have a best-of-breed hybrid analytics scenario in place with SAP BusinessObjects as their enterprise BI Platform on-premise and SAP Analytics Cloud for augmented analytics, self-service and planning, as a cloud-based solution.
Dashboards allow us to present data in a variety of creative ways which allow complex information to be analyzed at a glance. Along with charts and tables, maps are an increasingly common format, and with SAP Analytics Cloud it’s never been easier to create them, even without technical training. In this article we’ll look at the process for adding custom maps to SAP Analytics Cloud Stories, using a case study as an example.
Your current SAP BusinessObjects environment is key to your business. However, as many of our customers, you probably are carrying a bit of extra weight with too many licenses that are not used to their full potential. Why not review whether you can optimize your environment and convert some of the unused license maintenance to SAP Analytics Cloud?
These days “machine learning” is a common phrase across a wide range of industries. The need to manage, analyse and report on large scale datasets is no longer restricted to tech companies - sectors from retail to manufacturing to healthcare rely on data scientists to make sense of the huge volumes of data gathered in the execution of their business, and attempt to use it to plan for the future, optimise processes and predict risks and opportunities.
