This was a short SAP webcast, but interesting walk down memory lane…

The world has changed in data management

Used to be concerned about getting data recorded

Operations, permanent record for a company

Needed analytics

Analytics is situational, transient

New questions tomorrow

Analytics needed to be flexible

Putting greater emphasis on analytics


Source: SAP

Wanted to have a single system for recording transactional data and analytical data – combine analytics and transactions in 1 system


Source: SAP

Application managed the data directly

Data management was selected to fit the application

Then we had multiple applications


Source: SAP

Databases and applications separated from each other


Source: SAP

Had a clean view of data

Lock scheme


Source: SAP


Reporting on entire inventory would end up blocking the database


Source: SAP

Put Analytics users on their own database why the transaction users were on their own database, and copy the data between systems

Analytics data was not fresh, but no lock issues


Source: SAP

New issues, new technological solutions

Data was not in synch

Real time analytics not possible; analytics too old


Source: SAP

Hybrid Transaction Analytic Process, with little or no data movement, data was fresh


Source: SAP

Hopefully by now everyone knows about SAP HANA


Source: SAP

Can give a real time recommendation


Source: SAP

Can do predictive maintenance

Cable company service optimization example

What customers need new device (oldest equipment)
