There are 30+ members of the Enterprise Analytics Team located in Paris, working in five of the eight clusters that comprise the team:
– Sales & Customer,
– People & Resources,
– Financials & Corporate,
– Product Innovation & Delivery,
– Big Data Analytics,
– and Platform & Solutions Enablement.
They work on many topics such as maintaining and improving the Business Objects BI Platform, to the Early Adoption of HANA analytics, Predictive Analytics such as Cloud for Planning, and the HR Mission Control Center for SAP CHRO Stefan Ries.
The Enterprise Analytics team members in Paris have a long history of collaboration with their SAP Labs France colleagues through the SAP Runs SAP initiative. As SAP Labs France’s customer of reference, Enterprise Analytics is able to test pre-releases on production environments, and then provide early feedback on utilization and technical aspects as well as functional requirements for next releases. This, in turn, helps SAP Labs France ensure that they are delivering quality solutions that best meet their client’s needs. It is a win-win, symbiotic relationship that permits each group to profit from the strengths of the other, 100% Made in France.
Working so closely with SAP Labs France also allows Enterprise Analytics to share their experience as a real, historical customer of SAP with customer-facing organizations in SAP, who are then able to reference these concrete, real-life stories to their customers.
Look for the release of BI4.2 as well as further developments regarding Cloud for Planning and Predictive Analytics 2.2 in the near future.

Enterprise Analytics has always been a strong proponent of SAP Runs SAP. By collaborating so closely with SAP Labs France, they not only deliver top-notch, innovative solutions internally, they also help SAP Run better and Simple, and provide strong use-cases and award-winning solutions for customers.
