How Do You Make Your SAP Analytics Project a Success?

Every project is different, but there are similarities. We will show you areto’s best practice approach on the basis of our customer projects. One of our customer’s requirement was to set up a central portal for integrated control via financial-business process key figures. SAP S/4HANA were the technological basis and main source of the relevant data. In addition, data from the areas of human resources and CRM from third-party systems were integrated via database connection.


SAP BW/4HANA is responsible for the central connection of all business data. Depending on the requirements, the data is made available to BW/4HANA for further processing via CDS views, data sources, function modules, generic and standard extractors and virtual data providers. The modern arrangement of the data providers based on the LSA++ architecture scheme enables excellent performance for loading and reporting. In addition, the optimal classification of the data can be selected using Data Tiering Optimization (DTO). The preparation of the data along the ETL process is carried out using state-of-the-art technologies in connection with SAP HANA. Via ABAP-Managed Database Procedures (AMDP), Composite Providers, Calculation Views and CDS Views, the tailor-made technological solution is selected depending on the application.

Result areto procedure - Next Level BI

In our described customer project, after establishing the solution in several departments, the data quality could be improved so much that automated processes took over the main work. This automation freed-up capacities which were used by the business departments to design modern planning applications and forecast calculations. Using SAP BW/4HANA Integrated Planning (IP), a process was set up that takes into account the various aspects of financial, demand and consumption planning across locations. This replaced the previous, very time-consuming manual process that occurred every month. In several workshops, areto consulting moderated the technical and multi-layered discussion to achieve a joint agreement on standards and guidelines.

Data Science

In addition to classic projections in finance, the data now offered an ideal basis for further analysis methods. Previously, abnormalities and driving attributes were determined by visual analysis. These tasks have now been raised to a new higher level of quality with the Predictive Application Library of the SAP HANA database. The gain in knowledge increased immensely without leaving the technical basis or noticeably extending the runtime of the loading processes.
