SAP and Hyperion Customers Extend Business Performance Management

With the integration of Hyperion Performance Suite and SAP BW, Hyperion and SAP customers can now view data from multiple data sources in Hyperion’s easy-to-use, personalized dashboards, extending their Hyperion and SAP solutions. Dashboards provide a graphical display of performance information spanning financial and operational measures, giving users the information they need to monitor and manage business results. Hyperion and SAP customer, Maxxium Worldwide – international sales, marketing and distribution network for premium brands of wine and spirits – says that the integration of Hyperion and SAP products will help maximize the company’s enterprise software investments.
“Both Hyperion and SAP are key to our long-term business and IT strategies,” said Eelco Spiker, Brand Consolidation Manager at Maxxium Worldwide. “This extended relationship will help us gain even greater value out of our existing investments, and offer us powerful new query and reporting capabilities for our SAP systems.”
The Hyperion Performance Suite – comprised of Hyperion Intelligence and Hyperion SQR – together with Hyperion Essbase, provides the business intelligence foundation for Hyperion’s Business Performance Management solutions. Hyperion Intelligence 8.2, which delivers powerful ad hoc query and analysis, successfully completed the certification tests for SAP BW, achieving “Certified for SAP NetWeaver” status. Hyperion SQR 8.2, which provides award-winning, presentation-quality reports, has been certified for mySAP Business Suite.

A powerful combination

Together, Hyperion solutions and SAP NetWeaver will enable customers to:

  • Extend query, reporting and analysis into personalized dashboards for all users across the enterprise, automatically integrating information from SAP systems
  • Easily create intuitive, mission-critical production reports with Hyperion SQR
  • Quickly access and unify SAP BW information with data from external sources within a single Hyperion report

“The integration of our easy-to-use business intelligence solutions with SAP NetWeaver is important to customers who want to extract the maximum value from the information that drives their businesses,” said John Kopcke, CTO for Hyperion. “The continuing relationship between SAP and Hyperion will help customers extend the value of Business Performance Management and BI to employees in all corners of the enterprise while maximizing scalability and performance.”
For the last two years, Hyperion SQR has been honored as a “Gold Star Winner” of the SAP FAQ annual Members Choice Top 25 Tools and Technology award. The SAP FAQ, the more than 15,000 member group comprised of the leading SAP professionals, chose Hyperion SQR as a product that had the “greatest positive impact” on SAP R/3 and mySAP Business Suite implementations.
