Corporations with large real estate portfolios have a need to analyze and compare data across their many properties to efficiently manage the performance and energy consumption of their buildings. Therefore significantly more data from different sources has to be utilized. Some of this data comes from technical building automation systems and some from commercial systems.Managers need to be able to make sense of the data and to make fast and precise decisions.
Are the rents they charge in line with the market?
What is the occupancy rate of their rental properties?
How high are maintenance costs?
What is the office space ratio?
The SAP Real Estate Cockpit extracts meaningful data from the massive amounts of data in the underlying systems and displays the key performance indicators in an easy-to-understand format. By surfacing key information, it creates transparency regarding the building performance, and enables managers to take actions to optimize the performance of their buildings.
To get a first impression of the SAP Real Estate Cockpit please have a look at the following video:

Dashboard Menu & Dashboard Manager
The Dashboard Menu and Dashboard Manager are used to administrate existing dashboards and to create new ones. You can also assign users and roles to dashboards as editors or viewers. The video demonstrates how the Dashboard Menu and Dashboard Manager are used.
With SAP Real Estate Cockpit you can easily personalize your dashboards to your requirements. You can choose what to display and how to arrange it without the need for time-consuming and complicated configuration. The video demonstrates how personalization is done.
Maps add a geographical dimension to your key figures and provide additional information of the displayed locations. There are different types of visualizations and highlighting options available. The video demonstrates how maps are used.
Filters are located in the upper part of the dashboard and allow you a selection of dimension members, for
example to restrict the data to a specified country. The performed filtering is immediately reflected within all dependent tiles. This video demonstrates how filters are used.
A semantic is a business representation of a single dataset allowing end users to easily interact with
the data. It also enriches the data by applying standard reporting principles.
Semantic configuration offers a wide range of adjustments. Here you define which of the key figures and dimensions derived from the Data Set will be available within SAP Real Estate Cockpit in form of components in the side bar. Furthermore
you configure the hierarchical filter, time filter, generic filters, map layers and links. The video demonstrates how semantics are defined. You will find more detailed information about key figure, filter and component configuration in separate videos.
A key figure is a quantifiable value. There are several properties of key figures that can be specified within key figures dialog like decimals and unit. Key figures utilize the underlying dataset either directly or you can also create new key figures with defined calculations. The video demonstrates how Key Figures are configured.
A Filter is used to restrict dimensions on certain members. SAP Real Estate Cockpit provides filtering on hierarchies, time periods as well as generic filters which are freely definable. The video demonstrates how Filters are configured.
The smallest constituent of a SAP Real Estate Cockpit is the component, usually rendered as a tile. End users can access components via the side bar in edit mode and build up their personalized cockpits. There are a lot of configurable component types available to visualize the data in the most appropriate way. The full screen view of tiles is also defined within the component dialog. The video demonstrates how Components are created and configured.
