Intuitive business intelligence from HR operations with SAP Analytics Cloud
Headquartered in UAE, the client is one of the largest banks in the geography with a long-established reputation for excellence in the areas of corporate and commercial banking.
The HR function’s dependence on manual spreadsheets to manage and evaluate employees, as well as disparate departments working in siloes created challenges in easily accessing workforce information.
Not only did it take time for the client to collate HR operation details from multiple spreadsheets, the client also wasn’t able to analyze their HR data in real-time with clear visualizations of the statistics. To avoid unauthorized access to sensitive information or compromise existing security controls, the client did not want to rely on external help or extra resources to develop the required intelligence and rather preferred to conduct the deep-dives themselves. There was also a need to streamline HR processes to ensure improved collaboration, eliminate manual dependencies, get an overarching view of HR data across an employee’s lifecycle.
YASH consultants understood the client’s business needs and architected a cloud-based solution to streamline and analyses the HR information. The team deployed SAP SuccessFactors (SF) to streamline HR operations and supersede the existing legacy solutions and spreadsheets. A business intelligence platform – SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC), was also implemented to analyse the organization’s HR data from SAP SuccessFactors, and Single-Sign-On was implemented for both the systems. The consultants also developed the ‘Data models,’ for the various dashboards, in collaboration with the client HR personnel and CXO’s, and as per their needs.
The implementation of SAP SuccessFactors resulted in a single source of truth for the client’s entire HR needs, as well as automated and streamlined HR processes with improved data quality. SAP Analytics Cloud provided the visualization platform for the analysis of real-time data allowing for faster decision making. SAC also paved the way for self-service by the CXO’s and reduced dependency on external resources to develop business intelligence.
