January 27 – Jazzing up SAP EAM Reports Using SAP Crystal Reports

After going live with SAP in April of 2009 Fairfax Water struggled with standard reporting in SAP. While some transactions gave FW good reporting options using list edits and variants FW realized they needed better reporting in SAP. After purchasing SAP Crystal Reports in 2012 FW saw they could get the information they need out of their SAP system in a way that their end users could understand.


-Embedding SAP Crystal Layout inside of standard SAP transactions

-Using SAP Crystal to analyze data in a manner not possible with standard SAP layouts (grouping, conditional counting, etc.)

-Using Multiple data sources to mash data into a logical report

-Turn-around time for implementation is minimal

January 28 – Joint Use Cases with Cloud for Planning, Cloud for Analytics, and Cloud for Predictive

SAP Cloud for Analytics is a new generation of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution that redefines analytics by providing all analytics capabilities, including BI, predictive and planning, for all users in one product.

In this session, we use the example of a Sales Analyst to show how SAP Cloud for Analytics enables his day-to-day work by allowing him to seamlessly transition between his different analytical needs. First, the analyst explores the historical sales data of a product that’s heavily impacted by seasonality, he then runs a time series forecast on this data using the SAP Cloud for Analytics’ predictive capabilities and incorporates the outcome of the time series analysis is in his planning process.

I hope you enjoy these session.
