Business Analytics Store: All Analytics, All the Time
Our customers and partners have spoken! They want all analytics, all the time! At SAPPHIRE NOW 2011 in Orlando, the SAP eChannels team will unveil the all-new Business Analytics store. This unique online environment is destined to become one of the world’s largest analytics marketplaces, containing solutions for all your business analytics needs in one place.
In December 2010, we announced a limited launch of an analytics marketplace that contained approximately 100 storefronts from SAP and our partners. Even with very little publicity, the site generated over 5,000 customer visits and over 500 inquiries for a variety of solutions and services. This validated our belief that our customers are looking for a robust environment where, in the comfort of their own office, wherever they are in the world, 24×7, they have the ability to discover everything SAP and our extensive partner ecosystem has to offer to help them run better with business analytics.
Now we’re making that possible for you. Visit Business Analytics store to get started by:
- Discovering – Search for the analytic offerings you need for your business. You can search by industry, line of business, SAP solution type, or solution categories like analytic applications, dashboards, on-demand applications, mobile applications, and content.
- Evaluating – Once you narrow your search and find solutions that sound interesting, you can drill down into individual storefronts that provide a 360-degree view of each offering. This view can include one or more abstracts, screenshots, demos, trials, customer success stories, customer reviews, detailed briefs on business and technical information for the solution, and much more.
- Buying – When you determine the right solution to help your business run better, you can start the buying process with SAP or one of our qualified partners by asking to be contacted or by buying right online for certain offerings (such as SAP Crystal Reports software). It’s that easy.
We’ve got big plans to make this marketplace the most relevant site to search for all your analytics needs. Clearly, business analytics is a key priority for our customers, and we are working hard to deliver a robust environment with hundreds to thousands of SAP and partner solution and service storefronts to cover all your requirements. We’ve given our partners the ability to dramatically extend our platform by developing analytic apps for industry, line-of-business, and specific solution areas. And we’ve gone mobile to put the power of analytics on-device, so people in your enterprise can make those critical business decisions on a plane, in the store, at a customer site, in the plant, or wherever they find themselves – with stunning visualizations that show real-time business impact, guide the decision-making process, and allow them to take action.
With the same visibility that our analytic applications deliver, Business Analytics store lets you uncover unseen opportunities and get to the right information at the right time to improve your analytic capabilities so you can better compete and win. And you can be confident knowing that when you’re using business analytics solutions from SAP, you’ll also have the power of thousands of SAP partner solutions and services available to help your business run smarter.
We hope to see you here soon. Join thousands of your peers who are discovering how to do more with business analytics. Come join us today at Business Analytics store!
