QlikTech Announces QlikView Business Intelligence for SAP

QlikView for SAP R/3 Software Provides Fast, Flexible Analytics and Reporting for SAP Users

Raleigh, NC - QlikTech Inc., a provider of powerful and rapidly deployable business intelligence (BI) software solutions, announced the release of its new QlikViewT Connector for SAP® R/3® software. This new offering from QlikTech lets customers deploy fast, flexible and easy-to-use BI and performance management applications that combine data from SAP R/3, mySAPT, SAP Business Information Warehouse component (SAP BW) along with other non-SAP data sources-without requiring the significant resources, time and expense of deploying a data warehouse.

By implementing QlikView for SAP, companies running R/3 or mySAP get the benefits of interactive, multi-dimensional analysis and reporting at a fraction of the time, cost, and ongoing maintenance required for installing and maintaining a traditional data warehouse and OLAP-based based BI solution. To shorten implementation times and add further value, QlikTech also offers a set of pre-built analytical templates for Financial and Sales Performance analysis tailored for SAP's Finance (FI), Controlling (CO), and Sales and Distribution (SD) modules. QlikView also integrates easily with other SAP modules and with other enterprise applications and databases, such as supply-chain and manufacturing systems, providing business users with a complete view of their enterprise data.

"SAP is a very strong presence in the United States and an even stronger one around the world," said Aaron Zornes, senior vice president, Enterprise Analytics Strategies, META Group. "However, many companies are looking for better ways to gain insight from their data beyond the tools that come embedded within such enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions."

Businesses in Europe, such as Entsorgungsbetriebe Essen GmbH, a leading German waste management company, are already seeing the power and benefits of QlikView for SAP R/3. "Thanks to QlikTech, we didn't have to invest in an expensive data warehouse to gain access to our SAP data," said Jorg Rogalla, SAP Administrator for Entsorgungsbetriebe Essen. "With QlikView we can analyze our entire order process - from order entry to invoicing - quickly, accurately, and efficiently. We are responding to customer inquiries with much more flexibility and speed than before."

"What we are offering is essentially setting new rules for SAP Business Intelligence," said Markus Roithmeier, General Manager, QlikTech Germany and Director of QlikTech's SAP Competence Center. "Providing deep and powerful analysis and reporting capabilities to SAP users no longer has to be a costly, time-consuming and elusive goal. As QlikView for SAP can be deployed in a matter of days, whether the customer has SAP BW or not, we are providing a very compelling alternative to traditional OLAP-based solutions."

Powered by QlikTech's patented Associative Query Logic (AQLT) technology, QlikView's innovative architecture eliminates the costly and time consuming process of designing, developing and maintaining OLAP cubes and, in most cases, also the need to build and maintain separate data warehouses and data marts. This enables companies to develop and deploy fully functional business intelligence and performance management applications in days rather than the customary weeks or months, resulting in greater flexibility, faster ROI, and lower cost of ownership for enterprises.
