Is the SAP HANA Operational Reporting rapid-deployment solution right for you?

Are struggling with one or several of the following problems?

  • Outdated data
  • Restricted end-user reporting
  • Slow performance with high volumes of data
  • Lack of business reporting transparency
  • Limited technology with increasing business users needs for speed and accuracy

If you are struggling with any of those problems, then SAP HANA Operational Reporting rapid-deployment solution is right for you!

Take a quick look at this rapid-deployment solution in action:

Most companies implementing SAP HANA want to get the new system up and running quickly. For those familiar with Business Warehouse (BW), the use of SAP-delivered content allows for a quick implementation, complete with extraction and BW targets (e.g., InfoCubes, DataStore objects). In a similar way, you can use the SAP HANA Operational Reporting rapid-deployment solution content to accelerate the HANA implementation. It has analogous goals and use cases previously applied to BW projects now in the context of HANA.

The SAP HANA Operational Reporting rapid-deployment solution is designed not only to push forward a HANA project, but also to serve as a baseline for future growth and HANA development. Because the technology is different, the implementation content for HANA is offered as a part of the rapid-deployment solution. This rapid-deployment solution is designed for companies that are planning to use HANA for operational reporting needs.

The SAP HANA Operational Reporting rapid-deployment solution provides reports from the business areas of sales, financials, shipping, purchasing, and master data. The quick-time-to-value implementation of models and reports enables customers to go live in about 6 to 8 weeks. In addition to using SAP BI tools, Mobile devices can now be leveraged as well.

This rapid-deployment solution uses the SAP HANA platform to ensure optimal performance, even with high volumes of data – which currently cannot be achieved without leveraging in-memory technology. This solution offers an excellent means to introduce new technology in a high performance IT landscape without disrupting the processes and value that IT delivers for the business.

The SAP HANA Operational Reporting rapid-deployment solution is designed not only to build on new HANA technology, but also to serve as a baseline to extend all operational reporting on HANA.  In the latest version of this solution the focus was on ensuring the optimal performance of the HANA data models as well as enhancing the reports and dashboards based on customer feedback. In addition new SAP Business Intelligence technology is leveraged to ensure that the reports can also be consumed on your mobile device.

Let’s take a look at some of the ‘Top Reports’ offered with this rapid-deployment solution…

      Hi Kristina,

      Thanks for writing blog and it's really great. I have one question while implementing this RDS for my customer. We have few tables that starts with DOM_*. I heard some where that we have to load the data manually to this tables. Is there any document for this.
