Have you booked your flights for SAPPHIRE NOW and the ASUG Annual Conference? This innovative cloud and business technology conference will be here before you know it! SAP customers, SAP partners, and Americas’ SAP Users’ Group (ASUG) members from around the globe will converge on Orlando June 5–7 for the event, which will provide outstanding opportunities for education, inspiration, and connection.
The CenturyLink team is excited to be participating as a Diamond-level sponsor. We will be highlighting our one-stop-shop SAP solutions, which range from strategy, consulting, implementation and management, and network design to infrastructure deployment and cloud-based managed application services.
At this year’s event, we’ll be showcasing several key solutions from our comprehensive SAP portfolio, such as our business and technology considerations for SAP S/4HANA, SAP HANA analytics and enterprise data warehousing, SAP Leonardo, and SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud. In addition, we’ll be featuring our application management services along with offerings in advanced analytics, big data, IoT, machine learning, and more. We’ll also be discussing our wide array of industry and vertical-specific solutions for retail, manufacturing, healthcare, high tech, and financial services, just to name a few.
Capitalize on embedded analytics in SAP S/4HANA
With tens of thousands of organizations expected to make the move to SAP HANA in the coming months and years, this in-memory database platform is sure to be top of mind for many people during SAPPHIRE NOW. At CenturyLink, we are dedicated to helping organizations streamline the migration process and drive value and ROI from the technology.
To help maximize the value of SAP HANA, we are focused on uncovering features that might not yet be on the radar for some organizations. For example, at SAPPHIRE NOW, we’ll be presenting demos of the SAP S/4HANA embedded analytics capabilities. This powerful functionality is available to all SAP S/4HANA customers without any additional licenses. SAP S/4HANA embedded analytics enable you to generate real-time insights from operational data and take advantage of multiple data reporting and visualization options—all while eliminating the complexity of replicating data onto a separate reporting platform.
The built-in capabilities are impressive, but SAP also enables you to customize your environment if you need more extensive functionality. SAP S/4HANA enables integration with a range of advanced analytics and reporting tools.
Several CenturyLink customers have already experienced the benefits of SAP S/4HANA embedded analytics. For instance, one international restaurant franchising company needed ways to speed the delivery of reports on its restaurants’ transactional data. Previously, the company had to move that data from its finance environment to SAP Business Warehouse before running reports. The entire process could take two days. Now, by using the embedded analytics capability in SAP S/4HANA, the transactional data is ready for reporting in real time, and the company can generate reports within minutes.
