Embedded Analytics

Analytics today needs to be integrated with the moment of truth or at the point of transaction. No longer is it viable or competitive to maintain separate systems for transaction and analytics. We need to have analytics embedded in the transactional system with the ability to be able to react to any insight with an action in real time. As clients transition to S/4HANA the promise of a single “version of the truth” is being discussed via S/4HANA Embedded Analytics. The new Fiori front end with Embedded Analytics brings a new user experience and new operational insight that has never been able to be achieved within SAP. But is it enough?

What Is SAP S/4HANA Embedded Analytics?

SAP S/4HANA Embedded Analytics a set of Analytical Features integrated in SAP S/4HANA that enables users to perform real-time analytics on the live transactional data. It comes with a set of built-in representations of operational data, called VDM (Virtual Data Models), which will allow users to arrive at better decisions from the available data
