SAP Business One Intro and Analytics Overview

SAP Business One, as your ERP System, has brought all your useful data into one centralized location. But now that you have that, how do you make decisions based on all that real-time data? This is where Business Intelligence comes in. It allows us to create actionable and predictive insights based on the analytics of the data available to you, which in turn helps you make better business decisions for your company.

HANA Integrated Analytics


After giving a quick introduction on Business Intelligence and how it benefits you, Beth jumps straight into SAP Business One to give you a quick overview of BI within the HANA platform.

HANA Analytics is special because of it’s embedded analytics, as well as 4 Key Compnonents that Beth list as:

  1. Out of the Box Dashboards, KPIs, and Widgets
  2. Custom Dashboards, KPIs, and Widgets
  3. Pervasive Analytics
  4. Excel Interactive Analytics

SAP Analytics Cloud


Bringing in SAP’s Moty Moshin, he then goes over the robust browser-based platform of SAP Analytics Cloud.

But before discussing the Cloud Analytics, he gives a quick overview of what it means to be an “Intelligent Enterprise”

Moty dives into a demo to show the Cloud Analytics full capabilities, but as an overview, with Analytics Cloud you can expect to gain real-time information quickly by using the Business Intelligence and Augmented Analytics capabilities. This helps you be more certain and give you confidence in the data you utilize to make your important business decisions.

New Intelligence Feature


Passing the baton over to Corey Mendolsohn, the webinar then goes on to cover an Add-On available for SAP Business One by New Intelligence called “Quick Start”!

QuickStart’s main gain is that it’s designed for people who don’t have much time. Made as easy to use and find information as possible. Corey goes in-depth in a demonstration of all the different features and how to navigate the Add-On. He covers dashboards, reporting, integration with Excel, and more!

Power BI Demonstration


Pressing forward, Deb jumps into the Power BI Demonstration! A robust solution, Power BI is affordable, is used to build base queries or views (create modeling), and is part of Office 365 so it is integrated with office products such as Microsoft Teams and can be made available to all users!

Additional Business Intelligence Options

Beth then wraps up the training session by giving a quick overview of a few other BI options available to you with SAP Business One.
