SAP DASHBOARD FOR EXECUTIVES

SAP ERP enables organizations with an integrated system for core business functions. While corporate leverage their OLTP implementations for process excellence and efficiency, there is a big need to use these databases for key business insight as well. Usually, there is no centralized view of executive information from SAP ERP and manual/non-SAP systems that can present current business situation and help executives plan and take critical decisions. These are very frequently PPT/Excel based reports that are generated with a lengthy manual data collection across the organization and no guarantee on accuracy.

There is no capability to drill down into transaction level info and manual intervention / custom development is required to extract data from SAP ERP.
