SAP Unleashes Real-Time Analytics in the Cloud
SAP today launched SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) OnDemand, powered by SAP HANA. The solution allows companies to perform detailed real-time analysis of any data, including data from on-demand solutions.
With SAP BusinessObjects BI OnDemand powered by SAP HANA, customers will be able to answer questions and interact with complete data at the speed of thought, allowing more time for doing and less time waiting. They will be able to get deeper insights about sales, customers, and pipeline from any source, including on-demand applications for sales and human resources.
The solution also provides lower cost of implementation and ownership, as customers do not need to invest in designing workarounds to improve reporting performance.
Previewed earlier this year at SAPPHIRE NOW in Orlando, Fla., the SAP HANA application, with its in-memory computing technology, performs analyses on the fly, without the need to define rigid data models and aggregations ahead of time. It also cloud-enables customers to get up and running in minutes to support massive amounts of data. As customers’ data grows, they can continue to add more reporting scenarios easily without significant investment in IT.
"With SAP BusinessObjects BI OnDemand on SAP HANA, we are bringing real-time analytics with the break-through capabilities of SAP HANA, enabling complex analyses, plans, and simulations on real-time data, together with lower TCO, rapid time-to-value, and beautiful end user experience of on-demand applications," said Dr. Vishal Sikka, member of the SAP Executive Board for Technology and Innovation. "This is one more example of how we are bringing the power of SAP HANA to every aspect of our existing products, in addition to the entirely new applications we are building."
