Teradata Infuses Near-Real Time ERP Data into Operational Analytics

Fresh SAP ERP data and a breadth of Teradata analytics delivered at in-memory speed, all wrapped in one out-of-the-box solution
Teradata Corp. (NYSE: TDC), the big data analytics and marketing applications company, today announced that Teradata® Analytics for SAP® Solutions can now infuse near real-time data from SAP® ERP applications into enterprise analytic and reporting applications. The expanded capability helps organizations unlock the business value hidden within their ERP applications.

Teradata Analytics for SAP Solutions automatically captures and delivers the most current data from SAP® ERP applications and combines it with the non-SAP data stored in an Integrated Data Warehouse (IDW). This enables a wider group of users to leverage the power of the Teradata in-database processing at in-memory speeds for reporting, ad-hoc analysis, and advanced analytics.
“Teradata Analytics for SAP Solutions is a fast, ready-to-use solution that can be deployed in a matter of weeks to support more agile data-driven business decisions,” said Scott Gnau, president, Teradata Labs. “By providing access to integrated data in near real-time we’re enabling our customers to make data from SAP ERP applications usable for business intelligence across the enterprise.”

Once all data is integrated within the Teradata IDW, users can also take advantage of over 150 out-of-the-box Teradata Analytics for SAP Solutions dashboards and standardized business reports in key categories that include financial accounting, spending analysis, and manufacturing operations. Users also have access to more than 1,000 SAS® Institute, Fuzzy Logix™, and R in-database analytic functions that run at in-memory speed. In addition, users have self-service access to all of the detailed data in the warehouse to create custom reports and apply analytics with their favorite tools.
For example, a Teradata customer and major European retailer sells household goods, toys, and garden accessories through multiple chain stores. They own 15 chains, are active in twelve countries, and manage approximately 2,500 stores across the brands. It had been difficult for the company to attain an enterprise-wide picture of global expenses and sales because business data on each brand they sell is stored in completely independent IT systems. By adopting the Teradata Analytics for SAP Solutions, they were able to adopt a centralized, corporate strategy and quickly design a repeatable process to bring together the data across all 15 of their ERP systems along with other business data in a single data warehouse. The global, data-driven approach is expected to have a significant impact on sales and spend with improved visibility into orders, revenues, and margins.
According to the retailer's spokesperson, “Teradata Analytics for SAP Solutions was able to deliver financial, operational, and commercial insights across our brands. Teradata Analytics for SAP is a fast and flexible integrated solution, offering lower project risk, faster development, an integrated semantic model, and direct access to detailed data.”
The global Teradata Consulting Services Center of Excellence for SAP Solutions provides the support for the deployment of Teradata Analytics for SAP Solutions. The experienced consultants understand SAP solution-based environments and help customers get the most out of their data in SAP ERP applications.
Teradata Analytics for SAP Solutions is now available worldwide and is compatible with Teradata Database 13.10 and later.
