Second SAP Data Intelligence Content Sprint Concluded
The SAP Data Intelligence product management team recently led a Global Program that focused on business scenarios and building content for SAP Data Intelligence. Moreover, the SAP Data Intelligence product management team and other SAP teams provided mentors for each partner to ensure close collaboration between SAP and our key partners. This Global Program was connected to the APJ One Packathon that focused on Business Content for SAP Data Warehouse Cloud and SAP Data Intelligence.
Across the globe, our 10 involved partners brought us innovative business cases and built ready-to-use content for SAP Data Intelligence.
Business Content for SAP Data Intelligence is an important enabler for the following reasons:
- It focuses on a specific scenario, industry, or line-of-business
- It provides an easy starting point, giving customers a quick start so they don’t have to start from scratch
- It can easily be adapted for specific customer requirements
Business Content on SAP Data Intelligence may include artifacts such as data pipelines, machine learning algorithms, operators, docker files, just to name a few content types.
The goal of the global initiative was to provide ready-to-use custom Business Content packages that customers can implement quickly, reducing the time required to develop and implement a new use case on SAP Data Intelligence. These and other business cases can be discovered at: https://www.sap.com/dataintelligenceusecases
The partners provided the scenario based on their industry and line-of business expertise, developed all related pipelines, connection templates, machine learning algorithms, operator configurations, and any other specific content required to implement their use case.
Each partner solution can be deployed on SAP Data Intelligence. In most cases the use case will use multiple systems, for example SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, SAP HANA, SAP ERP, SAP S/4HANA, SAP Cloud for Service, SAP Business Warehouse, etc.
Each partner can work with you on adjusting the content to your specific endpoints and any customizations required for usage in your environment.
We would like to thank our partners for their active contribution in organizing and delivering stellar and innovative business content packages. Below is a list of all partner scenarios with links to blogs, business cases, podcasts, and more.

Blog – Scenario Description: Intelligent Automation for purchase order processing
Video: DataXstream OMS+ia
Industry: Wholesale Distribution
Business Case: Robotic Process Automation
Distributor receives purchase orders for materials from customers in files with different layouts and formats. The material descriptions used by customers often differ from what exists in the vendor’s system. Distributor manually processes each order request through manual data entry and material searching. On average, manual processing of each line item on an order takes a minimum of 30 seconds for an experienced sales representative, and up to 2 minutes for the less experienced. On average, a 10-item order would take anywhere from 5 minutes to 20 minutes.
The solution will reduce the amount of time to process orders of non-standardized formats by 80% with a chain of models that parse and predict text that is critical for creating orders, including customer and material information.
Scenario Description: Intelligent Data Reconciliation
SAP S/4HANA implementations require project teams to spend excessive amounts of time and manual effort to oversee the ETL and reconciliation process of migrated financial data. There is a mandatory reconciliation requirement of 100%-dollar value match for migrated data for successful go-live as well as to meet the compliance and auditory obligations. Manual effort leads to late detection of issues and inefficient use of resources processes elongating the cutover period with no automation.
This solution uses SAP Data Intelligence to integrate data from multiple sources (legacy and target) and inject intelligence and automation to build a financial reconciliation tool and instantly generate reports as soon as financial data is extracted, transformed, and loaded into the target system. This increase in transparency will support early detection of issues in data quality or load programs, and subsequently support accelerated data migration reconciliation activities.
