Creating SAP Analytic Applications:
Transitioning from Technology to Solutions
VP, Market & Portfolio Expansion
SAP Technology Solutions
Everyone is talking about Big Data and Analytics. Technology pundits expound the benefits of these technology developments – however, when you speak to the average business user, they are less interested in the technology per se, and more interested in the end solution that can help them solve their business problem.
In order to meet this growing demand from customers, SAP started building out solutions that apply analytics technologies to a specific need within an industry or line of business. In this discussion, SAP executives Shivani Govil and Scott Jeffries, will outline how SAP took the concept from idea to execution; applying entrepreneurial principals to scale the opportunity and leverage the advantage of being with a large business.
