StatSoft's Statistica Achieves SAP-Certified Integration With SAP NetWeaver
January 20, 2012
TULSA, OK –StatSoft’s Statistica release has achieved certified integration with the SAP NetWeaver technology platform. Statistica, StatSoft’s flagship analytics software platform, works with SAP NetWeaver for data exchange. Organizations around the world aggregate their data into an analysis-ready format in the SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (SAP NetWeaver BW) component. These organizations can now apply an extensive set of proven high-performance data mining and predictive modeling techniques to gain greater insights from their data made available through SAP NetWeaver BW.
The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that Statistica integrates with SAP NetWeaver Business Intelligence 7.0 via the OLAP BAPI programming interface for SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (BW-OBI) 2.0 to exchange critical data with instances of SAP Business Suite software.
Statistica’s SAP-certified interface further unlocks the investment in aggregated, cleaned data in SAP NetWeaver BW. Statistica provides the integrated analytics platform for the exploration, clustering, forecasting, visualization and predictive modeling using these data. Insights derived from these data differ by industry.
Statistica software is a configurable enterprise analytics, predictive modeling, and text mining software platform. Statistica administrators configure standard queries, analysis templates, report templates and dashboards and publish them to the groups of users who rely on the insights and summaries for improved decision making.
StatSoft initiated development and certification of the interface to SAP NetWeaver BW in response to the needs of its customers with large investments in the SAP solution. For example, a medical equipment and supplies product manufacturer was in need of assistance in monitoring its product performance, specifically the defects, customer issues, and how their products are working in the field. Before Statistica was integrated with SAP NetWeaver BW, analysts at this medical device company were accessing the data in a manual process and getting the information about once a month from their SAP system and then manually analyzing the data. StatSoft’s customer has improved its regulatory compliance and field surveillance initiatives through the use of the Statistica analytics platform now integrated with SAP NetWeaver BW.
