Map-driven user experiences are ubiquitous – enabled through mobile devices with build-in GPS receivers. Whereas consumers are quite satisfied by easily locating places and check directions, requirements in asset intensive industries such as Utilities, Oil & Gas, Mining, Public Services, and Transportation/Rail go far beyond simple use cases. Existing GIS (geographic information system) solutions maintaining multiple layers of map information, visualization of linear assets and objects represented by polygons (e.g. a certain area of land), combined with historic views and change management aspects need to be merged with related business processes reflected in SAP solutions.
The SAP Geographical Enablement Framework aims to augment business data with geometric attributes for SAP Business Suite applications. It will allow end user to view both business data from applications and spatial data from GIS systems simultaneously to obtain better insights. It will also serve as a single entry point to access multiple applications directly from the map. We are asking for end users’ feedback to help us improve the usability of the upcoming solution. We also want to expand on our understanding of use cases (not limited to any line of business or any industry) for the SAP business objects that would benefit from geo-enablement.
Interested companies are encouraged to collaborate and co-innovate with SAP around this topic.
