Beyond linear - A framework for addressing exponential business processes in today’s insights-driven organization

The traditional linear flow of business processes is giving way to a more dynamic model. In the new exponential model, needs for information, insights, and actions are embedded throughout transactions and digital user engagement. It’s a simple-sounding idea, but this new approach calls for a framework that focuses on five essential themes—all of which have to fit tightly together to enable an effective business transformation. And at the center of it all: SAP® solutions. Learn more from Deloitte.

Energy-efficient In-Memory Computing for SAP HANA Powered by In-Time Engine

When maxing out the capacity of your analytics systems, you traditionally had only two options: You could scale up by adding additional CPUs or memory to the existing server, or you could scale out by adding more servers. Deloitte’s In-Time engine offers a third option: scaling smart by using logical partitioning and improved parallelization to reduce CPU and memory consumption for high-load analytics, effectively squeezing more analytics from the same hardware. The results? Significant savings in money, energy, and resources.

Instant Insight to Action: How SAP® Business Suite 4 SAP HANA® (SAP S/4HANA)-driven analytics capabilities are helping reshape business processes for the better

Real-time analytics can completely transform how business is done by compressing the sequential steps of a process to the point that they essentially occur in parallel or instantaneously. Think of how today’s Internet search engines offer suggestions and related information the moment you start typing, refining their recommendations on the fly as you enter more letters. That’s what real-time analytics can do for business processes, whether it’s pulling up customer data and offering upsell and cross-sell recommendations while taking an order, or turning the purchase-order process upside down by analyzing and presenting purchase options from the entire universe of vendors and then homing in on the best option, instead of getting locked into a particular vendor from step one.

SAP Pricing on SAP HANA: Pricing at the speed of business

The ability to re-price entire product catalogs with customer-specific prices daily, or to calculate prices for an online order in real time, can make the difference between capturing a customer order and losing out to the competition. SAP HANA® can calculate dynamic pricing almost 900 times faster than traditional solutions, using real-time insights such as production acquisition costs, market demand, available discounts, and supplier agreements. The results? More competitive pricing, enhanced cross-sell and up-sell opportunities, greater sales penetration, and increased customer retention.
