Data is the lifeblood of modern businesses, and we are generating more of it than ever. And this huge amount of data alone is not enough for generating meaningful insights for your business. Organizations are generating data from various sources – Finance, Sales, Procurement, HR, Social media and so on and each has their own version of truth.
The process of data modelling and preparation helps to clean, refine, transform, and conceptualize data into structures and entities which can be better utilized for visualization and data analysis by various kinds of users.

Continuing with our Webinar Series on Analytics Lifecycle covering all phases of Data Analytics, our next focus is Session 3: Data Modelling and Preparation, which highlights how different types of data (structured, unstructured, aggregated, etc.) can be utilized together to create data models ready to be ingested for Reports and Dashboard creation, using tools like SAP Analytics Cloud and Microsoft Power BI.

The Webinar includes the following topics:

  • Introduction into Data Modelling with SAP Analytics Cloud and MS PowerBI
  • Capabilities & Limitations of Import and Live Data Preparation
  • Data Blending Options

Create value from your data

Data is the oil of the future. But the key lies in what we are doing with it.

To make intelligent business decisions and sound strategies data management alone is no longer sufficient. You also need to identify relevant data sources.
Drawing hidden insights and value from data by connecting, transforming, and then making the data accessible via different channels to decision makers anytime, anywhere, puts you ahead of your competitors.

So, which one is the best fit for your company?
With the countless analytics tools and technologies on the market, it is difficult to identify one solution that is right for your needs.

Within a series of webinars covering the full analytics lifecycle, we take a closer look at the two solutions Microsoft Power BI and SAP Analytics Cloud and highlight their strengths and weaknesses at all stages of the lifecycle. We will look into topics such as different ways of acquiring data, preparing data, visualizing and analyzing the information and ultimately sharing tangible insights.
Join us on this journey and make your analytics strategy future-proof!
