MICROSOFT POWER BIfor SAP users
Microsoft Power BI for companies using SAP
We have been working on business intelligence solutions for companies using SAP for over 10 years. Especially last year, these companies showed a massive interest for comprehensive Microsoft Business Intelligence solutions. We have experienced this kind of thinking “outside the SAP box” from this group of users a couple of times before and it offers the companies many opportunities.
Reasons for Microsoft Power BI:
Simple data integration
From different SAP worlds (ERP, BW and HANA): latest communication mechanisms such as OData allow easy while at the same time performant data transfer.
Quick modelling of analytical models
No more coding! Simply create and manage hierarchies and relationships using drag & drop.
User-friendly dashboards, reports and analyses
Thanks to the associative logic, it only takes one click for you to see the effects of individual factors on the overall picture. Thanks to intuitive controlling, it only takes a few clicks from the overall picture to the analysis.
Central provision and maintenance of data models and the interface
There is a central environment for the provision and maintenance of both contents and type of presentation (dashboards, reports, analyses). This means: central changes are available to all users immediately.

Without extensive installation, without high investments in software and with a minimum of configuration effort.
