Rogers Communications, one of Canada's largest communications companies, services millions of customers every day with wireless voice and data communications, cable services and media assets. The company needed an enterprise solution that would enable self-service access to data and reports, uphold security policies and scale with changing reporting needs as data volumes grow. Rogers selected SAP BusinessObjects BI solutions and SAP Sybase IQ to accomplish this. Today, 600 users are provided with increased data access, autonomy and visibility. Permission to access data is controlled based on the user's role with optimized query times using adaptive enriched embedded data structures. Users can now build their own reports and pinpoint the exact information they want to see. The result is a reduction in time spent on building reports, allowing decision-makers to focus on data analysis that supports operational and service decisions. Rogers and SAP are further working together to develop and manage the deployment of newly packaged enterprise mobile applications, which leverage the SAP mobile platform.

SAP currently offers the following analytics editions:

  • SAP® BusinessObjects™ Business Intelligence suite, analytics edition
  • SAP® BusinessObjects™ Business Intelligence platform, analytics edition
  • SAP® BusinessObjects™ BI, Edge analytics edition
  • SAP® Crystal Server, analytics edition

"With the new analytics editions of SAP BusinessObjects BI and SAP Crystal solutions, customers can start driving their own decision revolutions more cost-effectively than ever before," said John Schweitzer, senior vice president and general manager, Analytics, SAP. "As technologies such as BI, data warehousing and data integration continue to come together, organizations large and small are looking for end-to-end solutions that can turn 'big data' into 'intelligent data' and quickly answer any business question. The analytics editions take this even further by offering the expert content they need to accelerate return on investment."

Analytics editions are highly scalable so they can evolve with organizations as their data and analytics needs grow. This can be important for small and midsize (SME) companies that traditionally face many challenges when entering the field of data analysis. Analytics editions of SAP BusinessObjects BI solutions and SAP® Crystal solutions package data warehousing and data integration products with best-practice content and use cases tailored for key industries and lines of business. Whether on desktops or mobile devices, the easy-to-use tools let people quickly discover, access, manipulate and analyze transactional data in enterprise systems, machine- or device-generated data and Web data. They can even help analyze data from social networks such as Twitter to understand public sentiment about their products and services.

Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
