Existing SAP BW dashboards are built on top of SAP BEx (BW Explorer), and Power BI reports on top of BEx performed very poorly. Client selected Denodo and Power BI for all Data Integration, Abstraction, and Reporting needs, respectively.
Client selected KPIs over multiple vendors through a rigorous RFP process. KPI's expertise in SAP BW on HANA, HANA Sidecar, Power BI, and Denodo was a key differentiator. KPI's blended shore model provides additional benefits in minimizing cost and risk for the client.
What KPI Delivered
- KPI combined "SAP BW on HANA" and "HANA Sidecar" to create HANA models that can be consumed either by Denodo (virtualization tool) or Power BI
- KPI built HANA / Denodo models for different business functions such as Finance (Costs, Revenues, Spares, and Services), HCM, Sales, Purchasing, etc.
- Optimized the process for reporting Finance, Sales, HCM data using HANA/Denodo models
- Users can continue using the existing system as-is while using HANA Sidecar as a secondary database i.e., both BEx, as well as Power BI Reports, can be used
- Accomplished data standardization using Denodo Models
- Automated data loads to HANA Sidecar Tables using Stored Procedures and BW Process chains
