Whitepaper –
Mind the Gap – Expanding Data Access Options to Open SAP Analytics Opportunities

Digital transformations come in all shapes and sizes, but the one thing they all have in common is the need to expand and transform data connectivity. Analytics can be transformative, but only if analysts have access to all pertinent data sources.

In our conversations with customers about their SAP Analytics initiatives, we see that organizations have data in many non-SAP sources that they need to leverage in their analytics program. These data sources typically include:

  • Cloud-based data sources – Organizations are adopting Cloud-based hyperscalers such as Snowflake, Google BigQuery, Microsoft Azure and Amazon Redshift to provide structure for high-volume data and high-velocity data access.
  • OLAP data sources – OLAP cubes have been a staple of analytics for a long time, and analysts need access to this data, and the associated measures and dimensions, to populate their SAP Analytics Cloud stories and visualizations.
  • Relational & legacy data sources – Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and other relational databases remain important database management systems that have been around for a long time and organize important information well in certain categories.
  • Legacy data sources – What has happened in the past informs the present and future, so this information needs to be available to analysts.
  • Application data sources – Purpose-built data sources for applications such as Salesforce can be very important for analytics exploration.
