I attended this session last month and below are some brief notes
Everything in the future is subject to change
Research “shows how data driven decisions are at the forefront of digital leaders” and it is essential to today’s “hyper connection market”.
More details can be found here
Research shows that less than 20% of business users have access to analytics with complex environments and multiple platforms making it difficult to locate the needed data.
Users need to know what analytics they need and where to find them. “Analytics are scattered around in multiple systems, on premise and now in the cloud” said SAP. Then, “Users may not know the link, don’t have a login, and may only be authorized to a few analytics”. Then they don’t know the analytics that they do not have access to them – how do you discover and request access?
“Which analytics can I trust?” “What is the content of this report? What is the data source used?
Where is the documentation? How the are the measures calculated, and how is the data filtered?
Who authored and certified this analytic? How often is the data refreshed? Who else used it?” (SAP)
“How do BI administrators and power users easily empower users with the right Analytics? How do I make the right analytics available to all users? How can I easily govern analytics’ distribution?” (SAP)
What is the Analytics Hub? It is described in the above
Under “Simplify”, find the analytics you need and when you need them in your home page
Under “Act with confidence”, you run analytics that are validated and certified
“Stay ahead” and receive personalized recommendations
Analytics Hub can be an interface for end users, while underneath deployment can be moving
Admins can drive change to the cloud without impacting end users experience
It’s interesting that the content moderator selects content for you
Above shows the search, sort and filtering features
Review the analytic information to obtain a clear understanding
Governance and certification improves trust of the reports
The content editor adds to the catalog
