Customers have several options for their strategic reporting and analysis for their organization. SAP customers are excited about SAP Analytics Cloud and People Analytics for SAP SuccessFactors. Some customers leverage other reporting solutions including Microsoft PowerBI.

What is Microsoft PowerBI?

Power BI is a business analytics service that delivers insights to enable fast, informed decisions. It is most popularly leveraged to:

  • Transform data into stunning visuals and share them with colleagues on any device.
  • Visually explore and analyze data – on-premise and in the cloud – all in one view.
  • Collaborate on and share customized dashboards and interactive reports.
  • Scale across your organization with built-in governance and security.

Connect SAP to Microsoft PowerBI with Query Manager

For those customers who wish to share their SAP HCM and Payroll Data with PowerBI, we have a solution. You may already be familiar with the SAP-certified solution, Query Manager. Query Manager is the most popular reporting solution for SAP HCM and Payroll customers as it provides accurate, meaningful and real-time information from all of your SAP HCM and Payroll data. What is exciting is that Query Manager also can serve as an engine for feeding your data, including SAP Time and Payroll, with an external analytics solution like Microsoft PowerBI.  This is possible with our Query Manager Analytics Connector.

It’s Easy to Set up and Use

  1. Query Manager extracts the relevant data for you, without replicating the data, even for sizable volume
  2. You can build the queries, without writing code, without staging the data, in another system
  3. Query Manager generates a web service that exposes that data as an OData service that you can then consume via PowerBI.

You can also combine on-premise data with other data sources including SuccessFactors that come from other parts of your ecosystem.
