Fast Entry with YODA® and KPI Packages

We provide you with YODA a modern Business Analytics Suite for this purpose. It consists of modular, ready-to-use KPI packages that provide you with a quick and cost-effective way to query and analyze KPIs that are relevant to your business. The KPI packages are based on the end user roles (business users, executives, management) and bundle all KPIs that are important for a business area. They are visualized “out of the box” in a cockpit or dashboard, on a desktop PC or mobile via smartphone or tablet, and can be evaluated down to the individual document per drill-down.

For example, for suppliers, the Order Backlog (KPI) package in sales creates the necessary visibility to proactively plan production and shipping capacities and increase efficiency in sales and sales controlling. The key figures for the customer's release order behavior, including all relevant information, can also be displayed in a compact form with a KPI package. Our KPI packages are constantly evolving and improving. Upon request, we also compile a custom KPI package for you.

Usable in any SAP System Landscape

Because our KPI packages are SAP-based add-ons, they can be seamlessly integrated into your SAP system landscape, whether you work with SAP ERP or with the SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management application suite. In companies, which already use an SAP Business Warehouse (SAP BW), the packages can be used in connection with

  • SAP BW on anyDB
  • SAP BW powered by SAP HANA
  • SAP BW4/HANA

Of course, the KPI packages of the Business Analytics Suite YODA can also be used if no SAP BW is in use.

We here at WSW Software also offer competent support with respect to the KPI presentation, whether as graphic, chart, report or clearly arranged and easily comprehensible in a dashboard or cockpit with matching front-end tools. This includes
