SAP® and data analysis

SAP® is used by roughly 92,000 companies worldwide. However, users of the software face a number of special challenges when attempting to analyse SAP® data outside the SAP® environment.

SAP® data can be tricky to work with and can be only compatible with certified software. Alike any data, SAP® data is still full of its errors and mistakes and needs preparing before data analysis.

Some of the challenges that our clients face getting access to their SAP® data include: it is a time consuming data extraction processes, dependant on IT, has complicated data structures and processes, using SAP® features requires in depth technical knowledge, users do not have direct access to SAP®, users do not have the necessary access privileges, having 50 000+ tables makes it difficult to know what to extract, access to SAP® transactions such as SE16 are restricted and you have great dependency on SAP® or IT administrators and their workload.
