With Teradata Analytics for SAP Solutions business users can harness the enhanced visibility and timeliness of analytics to solve real business problems such as Teradata Analytics for SAP was carefully built so organizations can get immediate value and can grow the solution over time. The most common approach is to implement a handful of business modules at a time aligned to a specific business solution. Some of the most common SAP Analytics solutions used by businesses around the globe include, but are not limited to, the following:

SAP Enterprise Analytics
Organizations need data and analytics to provide the real-time visibility and understanding of their business. Whether it’s across brands, geographies, SAP instances, and/or SAP modules; a single view of the business enables sizeable improvements in disciplines spanning Global spend, Revenue/Sales analysis, Plant Maintenance, Supply Chain optimization, and Human Resources.

  • Spend:Improved visibility into spend allows companies to gain value through direct savings or cost avoidance in areas such taxes, compliance, & materials cost.
  • Sales/Profitability: Improved visibility to detailed sales transactions allows business to understand true bottom-line profitability of products, services, channels, & organizations. 
  • Inventory Optimization: Improved visibility into global location forecasting and detailed inventory allows better coordination of shipments and inventory management. This allows for more accurate safety stock, reduction in premium logistics costs, reduction in over purchasing, and increased sales with higher product availability. 
  • Proactive Asset Management: Real-time reporting and visibility increase equipment availability and reduce maintenance costs by dynamically adapting maintenance activities based on current asset condition. 
  • Human Resource Management: Need faster, more insightful employee turnover analytics with linkage of counts to actual costs. 

Optimize the Close Process
This repeated monthly, quarterly, yearly financial process is invaluable for management’s timely insight to making decisions. By making SAP data useable for BI, organizations can optimize their people, processes, and technologies surrounding the close. Substantial gains come from simplifying the GL, accelerating and reducing reconciliation processes, and minimizing resources necessary for the close.

  • Financial Reporting Flexibility: Challenges linking sub-ledger detail (procurement, AP, AR, etc.) with GL or across multiple instances of sub-ledgers. Manual workaround processes typically cause pain in flexibility, timeliness and/or ease of reporting off of ERP data. 
  • Improved Financial Transparency: Reconcile and link financial results (GL) to detailed business drivers across the enterprise. A single version of the data with access to details as opposed to aggregates is paramount. 
  • Working Capital Optimization: Limited view of customer/product detail plus limited access to ledger data restricts ability to proactively manage Receivables, Payables, & Inventory.

Reduce Enterprise Cost
Companies can reduce OPEX by leveraging the end to end solution to deliver projects faster, with lower risk, and with higher business value. They can also reduce CAPEX by consolidating & simplifying Finance IT architectures.

  • ETL Simplification: This involves moving organizations from ETL batch mode to data replication. This allows more frequent updates to meet SLA’s, lowers the impact on ERP servers, and increases the transaction volume support by up to 10x. Data acquisition changes/updates become point and click instead of multi-week ETL projects. 
  • Revive failed SAP Data Integration Project:Customers and SI’s often under-estimate the complexities involved in delivering an SAP business intelligence (BI) solution. We’ve helped many customers with a fast, low risk, and high value alternative that delivers more in a month than they delivered in the previous 2 years.
  • Finance Transformation & ERP Consolidation: Comprehensive re-engineering of enterprise financial systems are part of major initiatives to cut costs within Finance / IT and provide transparent access to data from multiple ERPs. Teradata Analytics for SAP Solutions integrates data within and across ERPs, bridges the gap between legacy and upgraded SAP environments, and lightens the load of manual M&A processes.
