Notes from SAP Analytics Forum – Paris, July 2, 2013
BAM! That’s what you’ll be saying when you revolutionize the way you make business decisions. The SAP Analytics Forum took place earlier this week in Paris, France. With today’s proliferation of data being available we need to build something new that engages every user to participate in the definition of truth, that allows every user to connect new information into the network, that lets everyone share each others insights, knowledge and efforts.
At the SAP Analytics Forum, two hundreds customers experienced the future of business intelligence (BI) and analytics through Hana in-memory, cloud, collaboration and mobile. Among all the insightful presentations and demos that were shared, I have selected two:
- French company Vinci Energies explained why SAP Hana and SAP Analytics is the right path to meet their enterprise strategic goals and optimize their financial performance: the Vinci’s office of finance now benefits from a real-time visibility into financial data as soon as the entity closing is performed.
- SAP echoed Vinci by presenting our new combination of EPM + BI + Mobile, SAP Business Planning and Consolidation powered by SAP Hana, starter kit for mobile Financial Results Insight, for finance professionals to monitor their key financial indicators anywhere, anytime on iPad (see the above picture).
BAM! That’s what you’ll be saying 😉
