Welcome to the first in a series of monthly weblogs relating to SAP Analytical Applications. Today we try to help you understand what SAP Analytics is all about.
SAP Analytics is designed for businesspeople to help them take appropriate actions based on comprehensive views of their business. SAP Analytics provides data models, associated user interfaces, and a design environment that support the best business practices across the entire value chain. The easy-to-use design environment provided with SAP Analytics empowers businesspeople to create, modify, and deploy analytic applications.
SAP Analytics is easy and intuitive for businesspeople of all types to customize to meet their business needs. The analytic functions that come with SAP Analytics are assembled without any hand coding, which means businesspeople can enhance their business logic without help from developers. They can easily extend the analytic functions, or even create their own analytic applications.
SAP Analytics is delivered as part of mySAP Business Suite solutions and is also available standalone, providing analytics to support both general-purpose and industry-specific business processes. SAP Analytics also enables strategy formulation and the delivery of insights through an enterprise portal, integration of data from SAP NetWeaver Business Intelligence and real-time data feeds, and comprehensive master data management that produces consistent insights derived from multiple SAP installations or from a heterogeneous mix of business applications.
