Financial Controlling/Data Consolidation

One of the largest German retailers relies on the core components of OA4ERP for their financial controlling - the socalled Nearline Analytic Infrastructure.

The enormous volume involved here in the analytical ad hoc analyses amounts to around 6.3 billion FI lines. With the help of the Data Replication Service integrated in OA4ERP, database and archive data is replicated in the OA4ERP analysis database and evaluated together. Without the Nearline Analytic Infrastructure, a detailed evaluation is either impossible, or only possible with extremely long runtimes over several days.

The quality of the solution is convincing: The query results are generated and made available within seconds.


Business Case: Cash Register Receipts

In the business scenario “cash register receipts” no less than 5,000 supermarkets with more than 25,000 active cash tills are taken into consideration. The bottom line is that this means the evaluation of several billion cash register receipts. The POS data is available exclusively as non-SAP data. With the help of the OA4ERP External Data Services, the cash receipts are imported into the  OA4ERP analysis  database and are enriched at the same time with SAP data. As a result, comprehensive market analyses - such as the determination of top sellers - can be done without any problem at the touch of a button.


Analysis of HR legacy data in S/4HANA

A large german raw-material supplier is transforming several ERP-Systems to a S/4HANA system. For legal reasons data from the legacy HR application must be available for social insurance reports and other analysis for the following decades.

HR data get replicated out of several legacy systems  to the OA4ERP database. For analysis of the legacy data, e.g.: remuneration statements, reports for the social insurance, the leading S/4HANA system is now accessing the OA4ERP database. This is a central prerequisite for the decommissioning of the the legacy systems.


Practical Example - Distributed Systems

Large enterprises often face the challenge that completely different SAP systems with different applications and release status run next to one another in their system landscape. Throughconsolidation, the operating costs can be reduced considerably. The technology enables system decommissioning scenarios to be represented.

OA4ERP creates the basis for this consolidation. Several SAP systems are connected to a central OA4ERP analysis database. Data from all connected SAP systems is replicated in the analysis database. The evaluation of the data is performed in a leading system. In this system, queries can be made on the data of the connected  (legacy) systems.
