  • Get your business frictionless with clean data Recorded: Jul 16 2019 48 mins
    Scott Wenzel Sr. Value Engineer & Matt Creason Sr. Value Engineer at Syniti
    You have just completed your data project as part of a data migration, upgrading to S/4HANA, a divestiture, or other data transformation. Congratulations! These types of initiatives can be difficult and costly. And now that it is over or well underway, how do you keep your data clean and know that you always have business-ready data?

    Poor data quality can affect organizations in many ways - financially, operational efficiency, brand recognition, regulatory compliance, and so on. We will show you how you can reduce operating cost up to 40%, reduce your time spent researching and resolving data errors, increase your revenue by 15-20% as well as improve visibility into your overall data quality.

    During our session, we will discuss how to:
    • Gain a complete view of information by accessing and measuring data at any scale and from any source
    • Continuously assess the trustworthiness of information and determine whether it’s fit to use based on its quality
    • Analyze how data quality affects your business processes and performance by discovering, defining, and monitoring data quality levels
    • Reduce costly data errors and staff time required for data quality
    • Improve data quality visibility and speed error resolution
    • Accelerates response times with automatic error alerts sent to responsible data owners

    Remember, clean data is critical for business just as clean water is essential to life. Business runs on business processes; business processes run on data. The processes that run your business cannot run efficiently without clean data.
  • Data & Analytics Governance: From Current Challenges to Future Possibilities Recorded: Apr 9 2019 50 mins
    Saul Judah, Research Director, Gartner Research & Rex Ahlstrom, Chief Strategy & Technology Officer, BackOffice Associates
    Traditional methods for managing data and analytics landscapes are not evolving fast enough to meet the increased scale and demands of businesses facing a digital transformation program. If you are planning any major transformation involving data, such as a move to S/4HANA, hyper scale cloud, large scale analytics efforts, ML/AI implementations or other major changes to your current IT landscape, now is the time to think about how you will advance your data and governance strategy.

    Join Saul Judah from Gartner Research as he discusses the present state of data and analytics governance practices, provides guidance to help you get on (or back on) the right track, and previews where governance practices are heading in the future so that you can keep your strategy on track.
  • You Can't Make Good Business Decisions Today with Yesterday's Data Recorded: Feb 21 2019 45 mins
    Larry Romireo at EFCO Corporation & Giacomo Lorenzin, Managing Director, Direct Solutions at BackOffice Associates
    There is a growing demand for high-speed analytic database systems and platforms where data can be processed at lightning speed for business decision-making. However, is that data up-to-date? If the process to update that data is batch or overnight, the data delivery may be fast, but the information may be outdated which can result in error-prone reporting and ineffective (or disastrous) business decisions.

    For successful analytics it’s important to move data in real time from multiple systems, including legacy databases, so that combined data can be properly presented in a uniform way.

    Change Data Capture is a technology employed in the best data replication solutions to minimize the amount of time and resources necessary to update data changes from one system to another. By propagating only what’s changed since the last check on the source system, minimal data is passed between systems in order to ensure identical copies of data on both source and target.

    Change Data Capture is frequently used to select and update copies of key data for operational reasons such as maintaining activity on separate systems that interact externally with customers or vendors, or remote systems that interact with corporate databases. However, it is also useful to maintain freshly updated data in systems that are used extensively for non-transactional activity, such as for analysis, reporting and data warehousing.

    Main points:
    1.Retrieving information from any source database for your analytic system
    2.Specialized and configured support to load data into the analytic system
    3.Automatically prepare and map the data between systems, saving time and resources
    4.Best-in-class process to automatically and continuously update data
    5.Change Data Capture saves time, money and effort through efficient and cost-effective technology
  • What are my options to migrate to SAP S/4HANA? Recorded: Jan 10 2019 60 mins
    Gerd Danner from SAP & Frank Schuler from BackOffice Associates
    Anyone planning a move to SAP S/4HANA will want to optimise their investment to achieve full business benefits from day one. This means getting it right from outset — starting with the migration.

  • Quelles sont mes options pour migrer vers SAP S/4HANA? Recorded: Jul 6 2018 28 mins
    Pierre Adloff, BackOffice Associates & Jean-Francois Floch, SAP
    Sécuriser son projet d’implémentation de S/4HANA, sa mise en production permet d’optimiser son investissement et de choyer ses utilisateurs qui pourront en tirer pleinement profit plus rapidement.

    Dans les projets S/4HANA, la migration des données n'est souvent pas perçu comme clé et sa criticité est trop souvent sous-estimée. Les projets ayant pris du retard à cause de la migration des données sont courants, impactant ainsi les coûts initialement alloués au projet, sa date de livraison et la qualité des données. Vous devez donc bien en amont vous poser les bonnes questions sur ces problématiques de cette migration vers S/4HANA ?

    Pour connaître les différentes options de migration disponibles, nous vous invitons à découvrir celle que nous préconisons lors d’un webinar informatif.
