Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, our Analytics Symposium will take place as an all new online event! Join us from the comfort of your home and still benefit from excellent online networking opportunities and an extensive programme.

Timo Elliott will be delivering the opening keynote: Analytics Augmented: Where are we on overcoming BI’s biggest and oldest barriers?

Sometimes it’s the strongest among us that need the most help hear Rob Patrick & Stacey White from G3G 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.
