FMCG giant Unilever's Global HANA Roll-out

For the initiative Unilever's European HANA roll-out is set to begin in January 2013.It is expected to roll-out the following HANA accelerators:

  • Cost of Profitability Analysis Accelerator – enables managers to visualise cost and profit drivers, even when working with large volumes of financial data. 
  • Material Ledger Accelerator – accelerates material-ledger period-end closings and drill-down reports.
  • Finance and Controlling Accelerator – helps the finance department accelerate period-end closes and reporting while unlocking opportunities to improve financial performance.
  • Automatic real-time Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) – speeds up OEE calculations, which are used to identify cost reduction opportunities.
  • Trade Promotion Management – improves the granularity of promotional planning data by providing instant access to daily sales, shipment, volume and cost data.

Thomas Benthien, Director at Unilever's ERP centre of excellence said this will lead to an increase in database transactions and our company expects to double its turnover from €40bn to €80bn by 2020.

We believed HANA Speeds up Unilever Business process by enabling Unilever to reduce the time it takes to process 200 million records from 440 seconds to just 30 second & 30,000 transactions per minute. 

“We also developed an iPad CFO dashboard, which needed a fast response time – it can access 90 Million records in four seconds using Business Objects,” he said.

We now have 65,000 employees, but more than 300,000 people are in the ecosystem of SAP all those jobs were built on the backbone of an idea that five guys had," he said. "So if you innovate and stay true to your customer and execute well .. you can run a pretty interesting company."

When asked how the market for SMEs is today, McDermott said he was optimistic and quoted "Entrepreneurs do best when things are at their worst." cloud-based HANA platform really make a change to world run better.

Business By Design Feature pack : What next?

What next in SAP Business ByDesign?

SAP’s Business ByDesign was launched in the year of 2007. And the solutions delivered via future packs and acquired many users and their engagements.Business ByDesign has managed to stand up over 1,400 deployments in 15 countries. And more and more, these deployments are occurring outside of the traditional SME market, which is usually capped at 500 employees. On January 1, 2013, 8,500 users in the Department of Trade and Investment in New South Wales, Australia, will go live on Business ByDesign, making it the largest implementation yet.

With SAP HANA as the platform. This is the major technology innovation on SAP’s 2013 road map for Business ByDesign. In this case, the integration of HANA has little to do with speeding up processes, since Business ByDesign customers already process most of their data in main memory. 

The 4 main areas of improvement in next feature pack :

Business enhancements

In the area of professional services, new functions include external forecast integration and inter-company automation.In terms of core ERP functionality, Business ByDesign users will get new tools in the area of wholesale and manufacturing, such as a sales kit, subcontracting, batch management, and pricing flexibility.

Subsidiary support

SAP Business ByDesign can also be deployed for subsidiaries of large enterprises. In what is called a two-tier ERP approach, companies deploying SAP Business Suite can integrate their backend with subsidiaries using ByDesign.

Software development kit (SDK)

It allows companies to get very specific industry functionality in SAP Business ByDesign, which SAP simply doesn’t have the resources to provide. 

Technology innovation

SAP plans to run Business ByDesign on the SAP HANA platform. Next year, it will also move from Microsoft Silverlight to HTML5.

Madrid Special - SAP CRM on SAP HANA

During the keynote, Oracle CEO, Gentlemen Mr.Ellison had said: “I know that SAP has an in-memory machine that is, you know, a little bit smaller than what we offer,” he joked and said “I think it’s called HANA.

As per my understanding, What he said was 100% correct because HANA is smaller when compare to Earth, When compared to Mars, When compared to Exadata, When compared to Metadata and also when compared to Users data across the World. But HANA doesn’t consider the data whether kept inside our planet or outside, a smaller machine travelling an unmatched speed with 3600X faster than Metadata or Exadata to access the user data.

By proving more and more, was recently in SAPPHIRENOW event SAP has announced CRM on HANA and promises more to come.

SAP CRM on HANA is a good approach to discover new customers, set up the existing customer by Upgrade and migration, in addition that one way to reach billion customers by 2015. And Simple, All in one platform.

Definitely HANA will change the way of CRM does business by enabling 360 degree view of real time insight into business operations. Helping us to make HANA as next generation In-Memory technology foundation.

The most one which have attracted me in this On demand CRM on HANA was Social and Mobile aspects like instant and global exposure in the social world and quickly respond to customer needs by reacts faster to the market changes.

As all we know, SAP HANA not only for SAP Applications, HANA runs with everything.
