SAP Analytics – Extracting Value from Data
Improve the performance of your organization by bridging the gap between data and decisions.
Improve the performance of your organization by bridging the gap between data and decisions.
With the emergence of big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence and machine learning, the role of analytics has been elevated to center stage. The winners in the modern world are those who can give all their employees, partners and customers immediate access to the most relevant information. But winning requires more than answering tough questions, understanding the business at every turn, and seizing opportunities before your rivals do. It’s also about creating value and ROI with every decision you make.
A strategic approach to analytics will provide the key to unlocking the value in your data – enabling you to gain unprecedented insights, bridge the gap between analysis and business outcomes, and combine the power of big data with analytics to drive business success.
One of the many lessons that came out of 2020 was that businesses need new intelligence frameworks to drive better business decisions in times of uncertainty. The pandemic exposed the gaps and shortcomings of models based on historical data, which suddenly became obsolete in their ability to predict the future. It became clear that it would be crucial to revisit model assumptions to achieve future success.
According to a recent IDC Analyst Brief, enterprise intelligence is already starting to define future winners. Organizations that are able to harness the power of their data-driven culture, the data literacy of their employees, and the processing power of their technology are showing greater resiliency.

The ability to reason, plan, predict and solve issues with deeper insights from increasingly diverse data sets is opening up a whole new world of opportunity as well as defining new methods and approaches. But to enable such business capacity founded on knowledge and innovation, the following three areas require close attention:

As businesses evaluate how to improve their current analytics and data processing capabilities, many see the adoption of more cloud capabilities as the logical next step. According to a study conducted by Forrester Research, most businesses with mature analytics/BI have taken a hybrid approach for both data analytics and processing, meaning that analytics/BI is occurring both on-premise and in the cloud today.
Large businesses are not the only ones working to organize and use new business analytics to improve decision making. Many small and midsize businesses (SMBs) are also taking advantage of new information resources for the changing business environment.
As part of that process, they’re using business analytics to improve their understanding of current business operations, assess how the external environment is changing, and identifying the actions that will be most effective moving forward.
