NTT DATA Business Solutions ‘Analytics First’ Approach to SAP Business Intelligence

Author: Adrian Paino, Account Manager NSW

NTT DATA Business Solutions has kicked off to a rocking start in 2014, leading with the first of many informative events for the calendar year with our famous breakfast briefing for “Analytics First”.

Starting early and with coffee in hand, it was a pleasure to re-connect with our familiar customer base, friends at SAP, and at the same time network with some fresh faces to the scene. We had a large attendance and many people I spoke with are embarking on the next evolutionary step in their BI journey quicker now than ever before, especially given the rapid increase in “user friendly” SAP tools. Yes, I said it “user friendly”, and the lowering costs of ownership with managed cloud environments and of course everybody loves to see a

HANA Live: Where Does It Fit Into Your Reporting and Analytics Strategy?

Author: Ken Palmer Jones, Team Lead

Much has been written on the new operational reporting capabilities made possible by HANA Live – fast real time reporting using the BusinessObjects reporting suite. However is HANA Live just a new way of running operational reporting? Does it take over some of the capability of traditional BI; without the expense of setting up and maintaining a separate data warehouse, or does it create a completely new area of business insight? read more…

Worldwide SAP HANA Introduction by itelligence, an NTT DATA Business Solutions company: Episode 4 – EHP 7 Has Popped Up

Author: Heinz Feil, Head of Internal IT at itelligence AG, an NTT DATA Business Solutions company

As outlined in the preceding Episode 3 blog about Wave 1, we were actually prepared to introdcuce Wave 2 as the last great phase.

However, in July 2013 our schedule changed slightly, when SAP addressed us with the idea to immediately go for SAP ERP with EHP7. Of course, for us as an SAP full service provider it is very interesting to always apply the latest technology. So we decided to go for it, even if this meant to repeat phase 0 again – this time with the much talked about EHP 7. It was most likely to make us the first company to productively apply SAP ERP EHP 7 powered by SAP HANA. read more…

Worldwide SAP HANA Introduction at itelligence, an NTT DATA Business Solutions company: Episode 3 – Wave 1

Author: Heinz Feil, Head of Internal IT at itelligence AG, an NTT DATA Business Solutions company

Before migration to SAP HANA, we had to install three new servers for our SAP ERP environment. Both the operating system (MS Server 2003) and the SQL version (MS 2005) of our “old” servers were not suitable to migrate to SAP HANA or even – temporarily – to EHP 6. And the server hardware had also aged a bit, so we decided to do a complete changeover. We have also undergone a change from dedicated servers to virtual servers. If you already using state-of-the-art hardware with a modern operating system and DB, this step is not mandatory when migrating to HANA DB. read more…
