A suite of data management tools targeting business users to self-serve SAP ERP & BW data for more effective and efficient analytics
Organizations can now better keep pace with the demand for faster and easier analytical insights by enabling business users to self-serve with data in SAP ERP and SAP BW without the need for programming knowledge. This capability helps customers reduce the burden on IT departments and dependency on external consultancy hours in preparing ERP and BW data for reporting.
Budapest, Hungary — Thur. Sept. 09, 2017 — VirtDB Inc. today announced that VirtDB Suite 1.0 for SAP® Software has achieved SAP certification as powered by the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform. The suite of products integrates with SAP NetWeaver and brings additional data preparation and data management functionality to the SAP ERP and SAP Business Warehouse (SAP BW) applications that support broader, deeper and faster operational insights.
The VirtDB Suite 1.0 for SAP Software includes two different modules: Data Unfolder and InstantInsights.
Data Unfolder enables business users and analysts to prepare and push data in SAP ERP, SAP S/4HANA® or SAP BW to SAP and external BI platforms, databases and cloud services in a way that is compliant with their SAP license. Customers can utilize the business logic they are already relying on by extracting virtually any data set from SAP software including standard and custom reports, tables and views.
Data Unfolder is also optimized to handle the biggest tables in SAP ERP. It’s a mass data extractor feature enabling users to schedule full and incremental data extracts of tables and views in SAP ERP. It helps customers reduce the analytical load on their SAP server and network infrastructure while providing excellent performance.
Additionally, Data Unfolder’s report enhancer feature can boost reports in SAP ERP by adding extra fields that are highly customizable to fit business needs, for example calculated fields, look-up fields (e.g. look up the name of a customer by its ID in an original column). This allows users to improve reports without expensive and lengthy ABAP® development efforts.
InstantInsights provides a solution to place data visualization where it is needed the most: right into the SAP ERP GUI. Using InstantInsights, end users of SAP software can make better business decisions due to the integrated operational analytics provided by best-in-class BI platforms. Dashboards can also contain third-party data, so as an example, business users can see a visual representation of a customer’s credit risk analysis when creating a sales order, assess credit risk in a snap and take necessary actions.
VirtDB Suite 1.0 modules can be purchased separately or as a complete package, allowing customers to optimize costs.
The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that VirtDB Suite 1.0 for SAP Software is powered by SAP NetWeaver. Solutions that are powered by SAP NetWeaver can be more quickly and easily integrated into SAP solution environments. Customers can benefit from improved interoperability with SAP applications and with the large ecosystem of solutions that run on SAP NetWeaver. Choosing an SAP-certified solution can also help reduce overall IT investment costs and risks.
