Benefits

  • Reduce time to intelligence. By providing direct access to metadata and InfoCubes, this add-on to SAS Human Capital Management reduces the time to gain intelligence from SAP data. Data extraction can be done in hours, instead of days.
  • Get a faster, less expensive implementation. Predefined mappings between SAP and SAS Human Capital Management mean a quicker, more efficient implementation. You'll also be able to significantly reduce implementation costs, as this adapter minimizes the need for customization and long consultation phases.
