Nobody doubts the importance of Business Analytics.

The challenge of extracting value from the data you hold within your ERP is still sited as a top 3 issue by CIO’s globally. SAP are aware of this and over the years have adopted a number of strategies to help you deliver Business Intelligence to your users. From BW and Bex to BusinessObjects and HANA you could be forgiven for being confused about the best option for you.

At our Ireland SIG Andy Steer from itelligence will discuss the historical options before going on to explain SAP’s strategic direction moving forward.

Andy will provide roadmap insight for organisations that have already invested in BI solutions as well as advice for those who still have a gap in their Analytics provisions.

Francois Imberton from SAP will deliver a BI Strategy Roadmap which will include the following:

  • Overview of the BI platform covering web intelligence, explorer, lumira, mobile
  • Delivery options, i.e. cloud / on premise
  • Integration with core ERP
  • The key business factors that define the BI path / product to adopt

OpenHydro is a young Irish company developing renewable energy turbines that harness the power of tidal currents in the ocean. The company is now in a transition from product development to industrial production and a program of IT investments has been set out to support that transition. The first major development was to set up a robust planning and reporting system that empowers budget owners and the finance team to access detailed financial reports in near real time and to input forecasts, all in an integrated toolset. OpenHydro chose SAP BW and Business Objects as the platform for that solution. Michael Lochrin will be presenting the business requirements, the solution that was designed, how deployment was prepared and the benefits that have been delivered.
