Snapshot from a recent Multi-Country SAC rollout

GrayMatter has implemented complex multi-country SAC engagements successfully. Following is a snapshot from a recent engagement:

Reporting and analysis needed to be done on data merged from two business lines, with transactional data residing in 2 separate SAP ECC instances
As-is reporting and analysis was being done using SAP BW and Bex queries for one system and using IBM Cognos for the other
GrayMatter’s team of experts integrated the data from the 2 ECC systems on to a single platform using SAP BODS for data integration and SQL for the data warehouse
Subsequently data is pushed from this unified platform on to SAC for analytics, multiple cubes have been built in SAC
The unified platform provides a single source of truth with consistent reporting ensured by data governance and master data management
The business users are currently using the system to generate insightful, mobile responsive, self-service SAC stories. Enterprise dashboards are planned for forthcoming releases
The system is replete with role based access and authorization
