Introduction to SAP Analytics

As the amount and variety of data flowing into the enterprise increase, companies are looking for ways to enhance the value of this data and obtain new insights into their business and their customers. In order to capitalize on these increasing flows of data—from SAP business applications and from other sources including connected devices and mobile apps—forward-thinking firms are reassessing their current SAP analytics tools and turning to new analytics platforms to efficiently integrate and process their data.

Some SAP users are turning to Hadoop to consolidate and process large volumes of structured and unstructured data for advanced analytics, and SAP HANA -- an in-memory relational database and computing platform -- to facilitate high-speed, real-time SAP analytics. Some firms are leveraging the parallel processing capabilities of Hadoop to accelerate data transformation through ETL offload while others are actively diversifying their SAP analytics tools and analytics platforms to stay agile and competitive.
