SAP has introduced a new product viz., Visual Intelligence and there are different options available for visualization along with hierarchy creation however there is no provision provided for creating custom hierarchy.
Hierarchy a well known word for the world as every family has it’s own hierarchy and the same even for any software product too. It’s been observed from many customers that they use the hierarchy to do some anlysis on their spend/Revenue/Profit and Loss…….etc hence based on the requirement the customers define their own hierarchy using the different analytic objects in their business for example Time based, Geography based, Controlling area, company code, Costcenter based etc.
SAP Vizi provides an opportunity to create default hierarchies based on Time and Geography however it is as of now doesn’t give the customers/users to create their own hierarchies for visual analysis.
I feel, after observing the customer requirements, this tool should support this kind of hierarchies creation to view the data accordingly for the ease of Hierarchical analysis.
