SAP S/4HANA Embedded Analytics

Business process and real-time analytics in a single system

SAP S/4HANA Embedded Analytics allows you to analyze your operational data in real time and visualize it using Fiori apps.

S/4HANA is the next-generation ERP suite from SAP, based on the state-of-the-art SAP HANA in-memory platform.

By removing the separation between analytical and operational systems, Embedded Analytics users have direct access to operational data. What’s more, unnecessary data redundancies are eliminated and the data model is significantly simplified. Regardless of the data source, SAP S/4HANA processes even the largest data volumes (Big Data) in the shortest possible time.

So the S/4HANA system isn’t just suitable for transactional processes now; it’s ideal for integrated reporting too. With analytical functionalities and visualization features that you’ll already be familiar with from Business Intelligence (BI), S/4HANA Embedded Analytics enables your employees to perform powerful, operational reporting in real time.

The new SAP Fiori design concept makes SAP applications much easier to use. Users now intuitively access centrally stored SAP data and data from third-party systems. With Fiori, techniques and functions that were previously only known from the SAP Analytics segment come into play. For example, queries and views can be seamlessly integrated and evaluated, and filters and breakdowns can be defined. In addition, all variants of the "Slice and Dice" and Data Drilldown are available. All these functions are conveniently and intuitively available via drag & drop.

SAP S/4HANA analytics frameworks

SAP S/4HANA allows customers to receive ready-made analytics frameworks that they can use immediately for reporting purposes. Unlike SAP BW, S/4HANA analytics frameworks are no longer based on replicated data; instead, they have direct access to the posted information in the ERP system. This eliminates the delays between posting and reporting. This optimally supports real-time operational reporting along the SAP S/4HANA value creation chain.

Based on the modern Fiori design, S/4HANA provides integrated reporting tools in addition to predefined analytics frameworks. This translates into simple implementation of analysis requirements that are close to the business processes, as well as integration of these requirements within an interface for end users.

Integration with SAP BW/4HANA

SAP BW/4HANA grants users direct access to the analytics frameworks available in S/4HANA and allows them to combine them with historical, consolidated data or data outside the S/4HANA system. A separation between operational and strategic reporting is no longer necessary from a technological point of view.

SAP S/4HANA is available to you as an on-prem solution.

SAP Fiori launchpad in Embedded Analytics

Fiori is the new UI technology for SAP Business applications and makes them as easy to use as consumer apps. With Fiori, companies can display SAP applications on any device via browser. Fiori focuses primarily on short navigation paths and displays that are reduced to the absolute essentials.

The Fiori UI technology consists of the launchpad and a continuously growing collection of Fiori apps. The launchpad is the central access point to all the applications. The apps are displayed with a modern tile design in the user’s launchpad. All the tiles can be arranged as desired, and the interface can be personalized according to the user’s own requirements and tasks. Additional apps can be easily selected from the SAP Fiori app reference library and added to the launchpad. Depending on the app, the tiles already contain a preview, for example, of important KPIs or tasks to be completed.

In combination with SAP S/4HANA, Fiori is the central entry point to business processes and analytics along your company’s entire value creation chain. The special features, such as rapid response times, numerous integration options, ease of use and appealing design with short access paths, make Fiori a state-of-the-art portal for users.

Added value thanks to the ORBIS Fiori extension

The “ORBIS Analytics Tile for Fiori” extension allows you to easily extend your launchpad to make it an even more powerful dashboard.

The tiles on your home screen are linked to highly aggregated information, not to mention existing detailed reports, as soon as you log in. The type of display depends on the chart design you choose. This gives you an immediate overview of your key figures without having to study detailed reports.
