SAP DATA WAREHOUSING

Not long ago, your enterprise data lived within the internal systems that only you controlled on-premise. Now, in the age of Big Data, it resides in cloud applications, external sensors, social media and much more. With an ever-increasing number of data sources, it can be a real challenge to bring this mass of data together. We can help you build a modern data warehouse that enables your users to access data to support decision-making.

More of a Big Data platform than a traditional reporting engine, the modern data warehouse leverages the capabilities of in-memory databases such as SAP HANA to reduce replication and provide a single, trusted data source. This means you can get valuable insights based on one version of the truth across multiple data sources, to improve decision-making across your enterprise.

Deployed in the cloud or on-premise, SAP BW/4HANA delivers the high-volume, real-time processing power you need to drive timely, valuable business insights. Reduce wait times for data handling and enable intelligent automation to achieve real-time reporting, transforming your data practices with the efficiency and agility to deploy live insights at scale.

1. Analytics & reporting strategy

Selecting the right operational reporting tools for your business is no simple task, given the vast range of options and use cases potentially in scope - but at AgilityWorks, our expertise in business intelligence and data warehousing projects, ensures we’ll steer you in the right direction.

We’ll help you define an overarching reporting strategy that identifies the operational reporting you’ll need to pull from applications such as SuccessFactors, Concur and Ariba, together with the strategic reporting, planning and analytical tools you’ll need to build on top of your data warehousing platform.

 

2. Defining your data architecture

The increasing proliferation of business data sources represents challenge and opportunity in equal measure. At AgilityWorks, we have the capability, experience and access to technologies that can help you bring your data together, eliminating the inefficient ‘information siloes’ that limited so many organisations following their early implementations of SAP BW.

Be it on-premise, in the cloud or a hybrid scenario, we can help you design a more efficient data architecture strategy, identifying the technologies that will satisfy each layer of your reporting blueprint - adapting and integrating your existing solutions with the latest SAP technology to deliver maximum value.

3. Design, deployment and governance 

With the reporting strategy set and data architecture designed, we’ll work with you to deliver the operational components of your data warehouse - supporting your data modelling, processing and performance requirements.
In simple terms, this means we’ll do the technical development work inside tools such as SAP BW/4 HANA, SAP Analytics Cloud, as well as SAP’s transaction engine, to give you the data platform from which to retrieve, analyse and transform your data.

We’ll also help you build your metadata, data quality and governance processes to ensure that your data warehouse meets the evolving needs of your enterprise.
