Overview

The new single data platform for the major petrochemical company has been the largest SAP BusinessObjects project undertaken and completed. Their SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform uses flexible architecture and analytics on an enterprise scale that can grow with their organisation. Their users all around the globe have access to and security of data, and use the sophisticated sets of analytical and reporting tools offered by SAP.

Engagement

The major petrochemical company chose SAP BusinessObjects as their long-term BI solution. They had previously adopted SAP Business Warehouse using SAP Bex (Business Explorer) for generating reports. The company realised how far they would be pushing their new system in their large and complex data environment. An expert consultant was required to handle the new system integration; SAP sent their integration specialist who brought in a dedicated development team from Xoomworks Technology to work with the existing 38 strong team of development specialists and SAP.

Solution & Implementation

Xoomworks sent a dedicated development team following their Xoomworks OneTeam™ methodology to integrate quickly with the in-house team. The Xoomworks team had expert inside knowledge of SAP BusinessObjects. The team bridged the knowledge and culture gap between SAP and the petrochemical company being mostly ex-SAP and ex-BusinessObjects.

The approach included

  •   Fast failure to discover problems quickly
  •   Analysis of performance issues followed by liaison with SAP directly to implement fixes
  •   Integration of 103 data sources from areas such as Health & Safety, HR, Supply Chain material management, production volumetric systems, SAP Business Warehouse
  •   Design of dashboards, content, and reports
  •   Implementation of an optimised security system including SAP BW, Active Directory, SAP HANA authentication

Success

  •   SAP integrated many of the solutions discovered and produced by the development team into their BusinessObjects Service Pack.
  •   Xoomworks Technology continues to drive the conversation with SAP for inclusions, recommendations, and fixes.
  •   Over 20 upgrades have been implemented on the BusinessObjects platform in an ongoing relationship with the major petrochemical company.
  •   The petrochemical company realised a major cost saving and long-term system performance.
  •   They created a single place for all their data sources eliminating the multiple platform costs for infrastructure, management, and support.
