WALLDORF — SAP AG today announced that it has been ranked by Forrester Research Inc. as a leader in its report “The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Data Warehouse, Q4 2013.” * In the evaluation, SAP earned among the highest scores among all reviewed vendors in the report for the Architecture and Commitment categories, and received the highest score for the Market Presence category. It was also cited for “finding its data mojo in SAP HANA and SAP Sybase IQ to support broader [Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW)] use cases.”


“Over the past three years, SAP has elevated itself to a market leader position re-inventing and simplifying our enterprise data warehouse solutions,” said Franz Faerber, executive vice president, SAP HANA Platform, SAP. “We believe that our scores for strategy and market presence in this report provide firm proof that we are making good on our commitment to help customers capture, store, analyze and manage data in a secure and scalable data warehouse to meet the requirements of real-time enterprise.”


In its report, Forrester reviewed solutions from 11 EDW vendors in a 43-criteria evaluation. The report scored factors such as performance, scalability, integration with Hadoop and data services, security, high availability, mixed workload management and hardware optimization. The report states that leaders in the space “offer mature, high-performance, scalable, secure, flexible, and robust EDW solutions that often combine an analytics-optimized DW with query optimization, parallel loading, deep data compression, and mixed-workload management features.”


According to the Forrester report, “SAP HANA has done extremely well, gaining more than 1,800 customers since its launch in 2011. Enterprises are using SAP HANA for in-memory data marts and SAP [NetWeaver] Business Warehouse implementations that integrate with other DWs, including SAP Sybase IQ, which has over 4,500 customer installations. SAP provides streaming functionality to queue and ingest incoming streaming data, integrating with SAP Sybase Event Stream Processor (ESP), a complex event processing solution, and supports high-speed data movement through SAP Sybase Replication Server.”


SAP HANA, which now has grown to more than ,2400 customers since the time of the report’s original evaluation, helps organizations unlock the business value of Big Data by enabling them to access and deliver information up to 100,000 times faster than before. With these real-time insights, customers can act quickly as new business scenarios unfold.

SAP InfiniteInsight Solution Brings Predictive Analytics to Broad Spectrum of Users

Photo: Shutterstock

Photo: Shutterstock



WALLDORF — Nearly 95 percent of organizations report an increase in the volume of data they have been dealing with over the last 12 months and 75 percent of organizations say it is difficult to reap the benefits of predictive analytics without specialized employees. * To address these issues, SAP AG has taken steps to bring advanced analytics capabilities to a broad spectrum of users by today announcing the availability of the SAP InfiniteInsight solution. Based on patented automation technology from KXEN, an SAP company, the solution will provide businesses the simplicity and productivity to deploy predictive analytics across the business.


“As data rapidly expands, more and more companies are finding competitive advantage by combining advanced analytics and business intelligence to capture, analyze and predict trends,” said Shekhar Iyer, global vice president, Business Intelligence and Predictive Analytics, SAP. “Our research shows companies need new ideas and tools in order to capitalize on their data. We constantly hear that the lack of skilled resources, high total cost of ownership and the manual iterative approach that existing legacy solutions have are all challenges for broader adoption. Put simply, the old approach is not working. SAP InfiniteInsight, along with our existing advanced analytics capabilities, provides a platform to help analyze business in real time and provide predictive insight across the enterprise by integrating predictive insight into applications, processes and decision-making.”


While 78 percent of businesses agree that investments in predictive analytics will be a priority over the next five years, only 29 percent say they are using predictive analytics today. Of the organizations currently using predictive tools, 94 percent see a positive impact.* SAP InfiniteInsight is designed to bring greater insight to more people by extending the power of predictive analytics from data scientists to line-of-business users. Capabilities of SAP InfiniteInsight include:



  • Analytical data sets: With the explorer feature, power users define a broad set of reusable business components, called analytical records, that are designed to be applied over and over again to automatically create the analytical data sets used for predictive modeling. This innovative approach is faster and supports less human error than traditional handcrafted techniques.

  • Accurate models: The modeler feature automates the building of sophisticated predictive models for every data mining function and helps users quickly get to the right algorithm for their business problem with a model built for accuracy and optimal results.

  • Actionable scores: The scorer feature can deploy optimized scoring equations directly in database to SAP HANA and other major database platforms. Because predictive scores often feed into complex business rules and decision engines, open interfaces support integration to enterprise applications like call centers or websites.

  • Peak performance: With traditional predictive methods, it is difficult to optimize great numbers of campaigns, become overly granular in targeting or to retrain models on a regular basis without investing time and sacrificing other business priorities. With the factory capability, business users will be able to schedule model refreshes as often as needed by the business.


“We are excited that our leading predictive analytics solutions are now available to SAP customers bundled with predictive and visualization capabilities,” said John Ball, CEO, KXEN. “We feel that we are in a unique market position to offer unmatched analytics breadth and depth in the marketplace and leveraging the real-time Big Data capabilities of SAP HANA can deliver predictive solutions easily consumed by the business and which provide tremendous value.”


A Winning Combination for Russia’s Largest Retailer

Eldorado is the largest retailer of consumer electronics and household appliances in Russia and has more than 700 stores and franchisees in 450 cities. And with more than 1.5 million point-of-sale transactions spanning 420 product groups and 8,000 products each month, the company relies on SAP to help analyze data stored in the SAP 360 Customer solution.


“We are pleased to have two of our most strategic solution vendors join together to deliver predictive insight across our business,” said Elena Zhukova, head of Analytics, Eldorado LLC. “SAP and KXEN complement each other and provide Eldorado with a scalable approach to creating accurate forecasts. We have seen a 10 percent improvement in forecast accuracy compared with prior forecasting techniques. Creating forecasts for pricing and promotion analysis, store clustering, store location selection and sales and purchasing planning has become faster and more accurate.”


SAP InfiniteInsight is available as a bundle with SAP Predictive Analysis software, which gives line-of-business users and analysts the ability to acquire and manipulate data as well as to visualize results with embedded SAP Lumira software. The solution can extend existing capabilities by automating key modeling and analytical tasks and enabling faster deployment and adoption to a broad spectrum of users across the enterprise and helping to enhance the value of core industry solutions and line-of-business applications from SAP. SAP InfiniteInsight also leverages the power of in-memory analytics capabilities of SAP HANA to help customers make faster, more informed decisions.

SAP Survey Finds Predictive Analytics Software No Longer in the Hands of Data Scientists

WALLDORF — Nearly 90 percent of organizations agree that employing predictive analytic software has given them a competitive advantage, according to a new survey commissioned by SAP AG. As part of its commitment to delivering solutions that address customers’ business needs, the company conducted research in association with LoudHouse, an independent research agency in both the United Kingdom and the United States and found that respondents see predictive analytics software as a key investment for their organizations.


More than 60 percent of those surveyed agree that predictive analytics is currently an investment priority for their organization, while almost 80 percent think predictive analytics will be a crucial investment within the next five years. And nearly 95 percent have seen an increase in the volume of data they are dealing with over the past year. This explosion of data puts pressure on businesses to make sense of it and predict future trends. Increasingly, businesses are looking for a way to bring predictive analytics to the masses and move its use beyond the realm of data scientists to business users. Other key findings of the survey include:



  • Those who invested in predictive analytics say they are seeing return on investment quickly, with around 30 percent of respondents reporting a “major positive impact” from predictive analytics within the first six months and more than 50 percent indicating positive impact six to nine months after roll out

  • Those using predictive analytics say it has had a positive impact on their organization with finance, sales and marketing and expect to benefit most from the use of predictive analytics in the future

  • Businesses say they are using predictive analytics to exploit opportunities rather than minimize risk

  • Predicting customer needs and market trends are seen as the most valuable scenarios for which to use predictive analytics


“Despite some of the skills and resource challenges, there is a real sense from the research that the emphasis on advanced predictive analytics has moved from minimizing risk to maximizing future growth potential in areas like next best activity for customer relationship management,” said James Fisher, vice president, Marketing, Analytics, SAP. “If businesses can put the right investment into developing a data-driven workforce, alongside data-driven decisions, processes and applications, they can accelerate their performance, reduce decision latency, unlock new global markets and uncover new revenue opportunities.”


To harness this growing market, customers will seek solutions that are user-friendly and easy-to-navigate. A leader in the business intelligence (BI) market, the portfolio of analytics solutions from SAP helps everyday business users to evaluate data and unearth actionable insight. With its recent acquisition of KXEN, SAP deepens this commitment with solutions to enhance the existing portfolio.

Enabling workflow for parked documents in FICA


Please let me know if anyone used the standard workflow for approving parked documents before they can be posted. Please let me know the configuration and development steps needed to achieve this requirement as I could not find any kind of documentation around it.






SAP Electronic Bank Statement Configuration in FICA - FSCD


Hi, I am well aware of SAP EBS configuration in FICO. But I am required to do it in a FSCD now.


Could you please let me know the additional steps to configure and upload the electronic bank statement in FSCD.


If the check lots are not maintained in SAP FICO, how does the EBS post check clearing entries?
