DFT Brings the Power of SAP Analytics to Salesforce.com
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Decision First Technologies Brings the Power of SAP Analytics to Salesforce.com
Salesforce® Connect for SAP Analytics™ allows companies to access, view and refresh SAP® BusinessObjects™ developed content within Salesforce.com®
ATLANTA, GA – October 21, 2015 – Decision First Technologies™ (DFT) delivers Business Intelligence (BI) data where many customers need it most, inside Salesforce.com. DFT’s Salesforce Connect for SAP Analytics seamlessly integrates SAP BusinessObjects developed content within the Salesforce.com platform, allowing customers to mash-up, merge and view data from SAP Lumira®, SAP Crystal Reports®, SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio, SAP® BusinessObjects™ Web Intelligence® and more. Users can leverage a wide array of interactive charts and graphs and even link back to detailed records within Salesforce.com for real-time visibility.
“DFT understands that effective BI has to be accessible where business users frequently live and work,” states Scott Golden, VP of Services and Co-Founder of Decision First Technologies. “Our SAP BusinessObjects and Salesforce.com customers needed a better way to access and analyze information without exiting one application to access another. And they needed it within the context of the sales data they view every day. Embedding analytics inside the systems people use most often improves user experience and productivity by combining insight and action in the same application.”
With Salesforce Connect for SAP Analytics, customers can interact with SAP Analytics in several ways, including a standalone report within Salesforce, embedded reports within the Account, Opportunity or other standard pages or embedded ‘report parts’ such as charts, graphs and tag clouds. Salesforce Connect for SAP analytics allows companies to leverage the tools they already have to garner insights not currently available with standard Salesforce reporting.
When needing to consolidate multiple data sources outside of Salesforce.com such as payment history or marketing information, on premise or in the Cloud, Salesforce Connect for SAP Analytics easily presents that information within the Salesforce.com platform and in context to the Salesforce data being viewed. In addition, the data can be accessed without additional storage fees and from the Salesforce mobile application.
Combining SAP Analytics with Salesforce.com provides a critical component to any company’s sales strategy, pipleline development, account management or KPI evaluation that does not exist with standard Salesforce reporting and analysis. It provides a holistic view of a company’s sales performance, but is flexible enough to drill down to a detailed view when needed.
