4. Real-Time Visibility and BI Tools
The integration of all business processes eliminates data silos, and redundancy ensures there exists a single source of truth. This kind of end-to-end visibility with the application helps identify issues with execution and fix them faster. Analytics is embedded in every process and transaction and allows constant tracking and monitoring of deviants. This therefore inherently builds accountability into the system. Users can access accurate and timely insights anytime and from any interface and help make informed decisions on the go.
Users can view business-critical information across intuitively designed dashboards that can be completely customized to meet changing business needs. Features can be chosen from a library of KPIs to monitor performance in important aspects of the business, such as capacity /resource utilization, cash flow, operating income, sales, etc.
6. Structured Implementation System
The SAP team has devised a structure for designing business processes and deploying enterprise applications, which is time-tested and reduces deployment time and the total cost of ownership (TCO) for customers.
It adopts a phased approach. The project is planned to the last detail with all stakeholders signing off on the scope of implementation. This is followed by system configuration and curated to suit the customer’s requirements; it is then beta tested, and the customer is presented with a validation brief. In the final phase, go-live data is prepared, cleaned up, and finally tested for migration, and the solution is re-built. Now the final solution is handed over to the customer to roll out for live production use.
7. Third-Party API Integration
In many instances where customers have already deployed third-party solutions as on-premise and/or cloud-based applications; SAP has processes in place to evaluate and harmonize integration scenarios. It lays down clear guidelines for merging and unifying custom data streams from legacy systems being used by customers. SAP Business ByDesign is designed to be amenable to integration via APIs for requirements with data integration, process integration, analytical, and UI integration.
