Are You Struggling to Extract Meaningful Insights from Your SAP Data?
Preparing Ad Hoc Reports is Difficult and Relies on IT Skills
Finance teams frequently need to query SAP data to answer ad hoc questions. However, SAP data are complex, understanding them requires significant expertise, and native tools including SAP BusinessObjects and SAP Business Warehouse (BW) require technical knowledge to use them. This leaves finance teams dependent on scarce IT skills to create and modify reports, resulting in delays and frustration
Out-of-the-Box Reports are Too Inflexible for Finance
Finance and accounting teams need to report and drill across multiple dimensions. You want to see the full picture of your business performance and need to access data from multiple systems, whether it’s other SAP modules or separate business systems. Such data groupings are difficult to create with the native SAP reporting tools.
Manual Reporting Processes are a Time Drain
When you’re looking to spend more time on value-added analysis, you need to find new ways to increase your productivity, replacing manual processes like exporting to spreadsheets, flipping between Excel and SAP to validate data, and formatting reports.
