OVERVIEW YOUR BI
Create a library for all your key figures and reports.
UNDERSTAND YOUR BI
Provide definitions for your key figures and reports.
INTEGRATE YOUR SAP BW
Connect business and technical information.
A manager wants to know which BI applications exist in the company and which evaluations can be performed in each case. An end user wants to know if there is a suitable report for his desired evaluation.
The company has documentation on key figures and reports at various locations and handles them differently depending on the department. This documentation is to be merged and managed centrally.
A key user creates a new key figure or a new report and wants to document it on the one hand and inform the relevant users about the new report on the other. The documentation should document both the technical aspects and the technical implementation.
A user wants to know how a key figure is calculated and which other key figures play a role in the calculation.
An employee of a business department is an end user of a business intelligence application and requires further information about a report in general or a key figure within a report. The employee already uses the report and has questions about the data displayed.
An end user wants to perform a new evaluation and needs to adjust a report. The user now wants to record the requirements for this report and transfer them to IT. Then, IT wants to find out whether existing technical objects are affected by the new requirement.
There is a different understanding between departments about relevant terms that describe key figures. In an airport, a marketing employee has a different understanding of what a "passenger" is than an accounting employee.
TECHNICAL META DATA
Integrate technical information in terms of SAP BW, BO and SAC meta data in your Enterprise Glossary. This allows you to combine business information and technical information to meaningful factsheets.
The integrated SAP meta data is synchronized automatically and kept up to date by schedules synchronization jobs. As a consequence, you will always find correct and up-to-date information.
Users can see connections between different SAP entities and inform themselves about SAP implementations without having to rely on IT or other colleagues.
