Generating all these reports can have a major impact on performance (in the case of real-time analytics) and on maintaining structure and clarity in your analytics landscape. In other words, before adding anything, you have to be critical about your motivations. Do you really need daily reports on sales, or would a weekly overview suffice? The key is to carefully consider which insights are actionable, and which are just ‘knowing for the sake of knowing.’
However, understanding which insights are most valuable can be challenging – especially for IT. Which is why business users need to get involved as well. Luckily, next-generation tools like SAP Data Warehouse Cloud make it easier than ever before for them to get started with analytics – no coding skills required. And while many are still oblivious to the amazing insights and opportunities that lie within reach, the right coaching and training can do wonders.
