Provide the business with self-service insight
IT has a tough time. It has to balance providing a continuity of IT services with keeping up with the latest technologies. Business needs keep getting more demanding due to increasing levels of customer and market expectations, while technology is changing at an exponential rate.

KNOW MORE and ACT FASTER
90 per cent of all business questions are ad-hoc, arising as a result of recent events. Providing the answers to these questions has always been the domain of IT. As the pace of change quickens, so does the pressure on IT to provide more than just transactional recording devices. In the world of big data the business wants big answers – and IT is tasked with providing them.
This doesn’t come without a cost – in time, resources and money. Self-service analytics was supposed to prove the answer to this, but even though it allows the user to create their own reports, the data set still needs curating, staging, testing and maintaining. Effort that once again falls on the shoulders of IT.
Every Angle cuts right through this challenge by providing ‘real’ business user self-service; real because it understands SAP data and the configuration behind it. Understands the connections between processes. Understands the master and transactional data setup. As a result of this, Every Angle doesn’t require a dataset to be developed by IT. Doesn’t require constant maintenance. Doesn’t require curating and staging. It also empowers business users with easy, engaging and empowering tools that enlightens them with new insights, added fields that simplify the complexity of SAP and encourage users to maintain their data in SAP.
It reduces the amount of downloads into Excel, thereby reducing the amount of effort users undertake whilst simultaneously reducing business risks caused by multiple versions of the truth. Better still, companies that user Every Angle report a significant improvement in user satisfaction in SAP – which translates to a better perception of the value IT delivers.
