Empowering sales and business operations with a governed data landscape
By restructuring its data landscape with SAP Analytics Cloud and SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, Porsche eliminated redundancy, removed silos, and automated processes. This enabled its lines of business to save time and draw valuable insights to help shape decision-making.
Now, a new hybrid data warehouse empowers Porsche’s employees to connect and model data in a safe and governed environment. Starting with the sales department, IT administrators gave access to the Spaces feature. Here, users can experiment with the data through virtualization and share models across Spaces, with IT knowing that the original data is safe and secure.
By setting up a visual dashboard with SAP Analytics Cloud, Porsche’s dealerships can instantly see sales data, lead information, and what’s in the pipeline on a granular level. The dealerships can quickly pull and understand the data that’s relevant to them while sales leaders get a broader view of the sales trends. All this cuts the prep time for sales meetings from days to mere hours.
These dashboards also made an impact on day-to-day operations. Now, sales members can check dashboards first thing in the morning to get a real-time overview of what needs to be accomplished. With the success of this project, SAP Analytics Cloud is now used across the organization with 3,000 users in departments ranging from customer relations to controlling to human resources.
