Analytics from SAP: The way forward

The 2020 marketplace for analytics is changing faster than ever with fundamental changes to both business expectations, and in parallel big technology shifts. Hear how SAP is approaching this changing world and therefore the impacts to our analytics strategy and go-to-market.

Sometimes it’s the strongest among us that need the most help hear Chris Gunter, G3G's CEO deliver the following keynote:

ERP needed a game changing, leading edge solution to tackle the challenges of conservation in the wild, so they turned to SAP.

The plan - Create a mobilised solution that puts “eyes in the sky” instead of “more boots on the ground”. Drones now monitor elephant and rhino herds in certain sensitive Southern African conservation areas. Drone data is combined with GPS data from animal collars, transmitted to the Cloud, then using SAP HANA Reporting in real time to deliver key information to rangers via a new mobile app. With SAP’s Leonardo framework, data is harvested from IoT devices, further strengthening ERP’s protective capabilities.

Powered by determination and SAP, ERP is now changing peoples’ lives in poor rural areas, and saving more wild elephants and rhinos.

Through the use of SAP HANA Cloud Platform and Business Intelligence, the ERP (Elephants, Rhinos and People) Airforce has been able to build a novel solution in a non-traditional SAP market segment, changing the way conservationists protect and monitor endangered wildlife.
