Companies face ever-growing data flows and must deal with increasing data volumes. Often relevant business data comes from heterogeneous sources and has various structures. Here a central application is necessary that extracts the relevant data on the whole enterprise from various sources, combines and processes it and makes it available for evaluation. SAP BI (SAP Business Intelligence) is the data warehouse solution from SAP, which exactly fulfils these core functions. Relevant data is extracted from existing data sources, uniformly transformed and then merged on a target server. The processed and consolidated data can also be exported and made available for external applications or tools and for authorities, according to requirements. SAP business intelligence thus offers a reliable basic structure for request-specific processes for each company in terms of data consistency and analysis. Thus accurate information for secure enterprise decision is always available.
If relevant information is missing: SAP BI
Companies operating with data bases often have a huge amount of data, although this cannot be used effectively. A variety of servers, mobile devices, back office, sales force, decentralised inputs - from this variety of data sources the right information must be considered for management decision making. The data is often not consistent, sometimes cannot be found or is not accessible. For relevant management decisions, however, reliable information and analysis are essential. If an attempt is made with own solutions to ensure data collection and analysis, this is complicated by the heterogeneity and lack of data consistency already described. The ineffective use of existing data may lead to serious deficits for a company on the market:
To counteract such a scenario, SAP BI is a proven and sustainable use solution. The data made available forms the basis for sound management decisions and the optimal control of processes.

Effectively use relevant data, with SAP BI
As a data warehouse solution SAP BI ensures, among other things, that all the relevant business information extracted from various sources is merged, edited and made available.From the reporting viewpoint, SAP BI thereby assumes the role of the “single point of truth" as the application- and system-wide evaluation component of the company.
An SAP business intelligence solution consists of several integrated components:
Tools for optimal data management
ETL Processor for extraction, transformation and loading of data
OLAP (online analytic processing) for hypothesis-based analyses
Data mining environment for further analysis options
Frontend tools for graphical representation of data - from simple to highly complex
There are also other tools and BI components, which can be integrated into a SAP BI solution. Depending on the task, the complexity can be expanded at any time, thus demonstrating the sustainability of such a solution.
