WALLDORF — SAP AG today announced a new rapid-deployment solution for SAP HANA Live, designed for  real-time operational reporting within and beyond SAP Business Suite software powered by the SAP HANA platform. SAP HANA Live allows customers to perform real-time analysis on top of live transactional data for rapid insight into business operations.

Rapid deployment of SAP HANA Live offers customers pre-configured content in the form of 85 pre-built reports that cover a range of operational reporting content in critical areas such as finance, controlling, sales and distribution, governance, risk and compliance, customer relationship management and insurance. The reports provide insight into essential business operations, are easy to use and can be customized based on specific business needs.

“SAP HANA Live equips customers with real-time operational reporting that enables real-time business decisions,” said Greg Tomb, executive vice president, Global Services Sales, SAP. “The powerful analytics behind the solution tie directly to SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA. Additionally, customers and SAP partners can extend the solution through flexible models and business intelligence reports.”

SAP Rapid Deployment solutions include preconfigured software, best-practices content, end-user enablement and implementation methods, which allow customers to be up and running in as little as eight to 12 weeks. With the SAP HANA Live rapid-deployment solution, customers can address challenges such as slow reporting and poor visibility into operational data. Those that want to draw real-time insight across their entire business landscape can use the rich content delivered by the virtual data models to make informed decisions. The deployed solution can be used as a starting point to help extend the scope to an even broader solution desired by customers along their individual adoption paths.

“In today’s competitive global economy, businesses must adopt technology solutions that provide an immediate advantage over their competitors,” said Bernd Welz, executive vice president and global head, Solution & Knowledge Packaging, SAP. “But time-to-value is key. With rapid deployment of SAP HANA Live, customers can use the power of real-time operational reporting within a few weeks.”

The SAP HANA Live rapid-deployment solution is also planned to be included in the fourth quarter of 2013 release of the rapid-deployment solutions bundle that shall implement the major elements of the SAP ERP Foundation Extension, which combines the SAP ERP application running on SAP HANA with mobile, analytics, technology and cloud innovations. Rapid deployment of SAP HANA Live is available for delivery via partners and SAP Services.
