APOS Live Data Gateway Use Case – Responsive Billing through Live Data Connectivity

A leading supplier of specialty minerals for industry deployed SAP Analytics Cloud as their analytics platform, but needed additional live data connectivity and drill-down capabilities for their Redshift Cloud data warehouse, which consolidates financial and billing data. Their deployment also included Amazon Athena’s interactive query service and Amazon S3 storage. Their goal was to streamline their financial workflows and create more responsive billing processes.
