We live in a connected world where Big Data, people, machines, and processes are interlinked in an internet of everything. Connecting information to the work we do every day enables us to quickly discover what’s happening and then act with the power of collective insight. Analytics solutions from SAP uniquely enable this by delivering an enterprise business intelligence solution that gives you the power to engage with all your data. All of this and more will be covered at Sapphire Now in Orlando.
SAP Lumira software, SAP Fiori apps, the SAP HANA platform, SAP BusinessObjects BI, SAP Mobile Secure portfolio, SAP Mobile Platform, Portal, and SAP Gateway technology are on the agenda as the ecosystem of the Business Information Technology (BIT) India Info-Days tours partner the length and breadth of India with one basic message – innovate together.
According to Gartner, studies show that roughly 10-15% of people in an organization have access to business intelligence (BI) and analytics today. Gartner predicts that figure to rise to 75% by 2020. But what will they be doing? And what are we doing to make BI and analytics useful to all of them? Modern technologies applied to BI and analytics projects are part of the answer, but there’s more to it.

Daimler Trucks is one of the largest manufacturers of commercial vehicles in North America. The company has 20,000 employees and 2,000 customer locations. Their SAP Lumira software project is an over–the-counter excellence initiative. The goal is to identify and track potential sales for their dealers. Daimler Trucks has been working with the BI Design Council and that has allowed them to collaborate with the SAP Lumira development team in order to influence product features that meet their business needs.
