Supporting Sustainable Farms with SAP Analytics Cloud

Use collected data to gain insights for both research by a company and consumer-facing reporting

Overview

Many industries require analytic capabilities to empower all users across diverse locations to visualize, analyze, plan, predict, and collaborate. These industries also require that sustainability be a priority and enforce regulations to ensure this. The world is constantly changing, and emerging technologies are providing us the tools needed to better understand how decisions made now can impact future generations. The topic of sustainability is not a new one; however, the importance of sustainable practices is continuing to increase.

SAP Analytics Cloud, combined with services from the SAP Cloud Platform, including an SAP HANA Database, SAP Cloud Platform Mobile Services, SAP Cloud Platform Portal, and SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication, provide the required capabilities for all users in this business scenario.

SAP Analytics Cloud offers the analytical capabilities for all users in one product. Users in the boardroom, at the office, or in the field, or customers perusing the company website, can all discover, analyze, plan, predict, and collaborate in one integrated experience designed expressly for the cloud. SAP Analytics Cloud provides an effective and engaging user experience across roles and device types through cloud deployment, real-time analytics, ad-hoc queries, visualization, and collaboration tools.

The SAP Cloud Platform services mentioned for this business scenario provide the field workers visiting the farms the tools required to accurately input data into a survey, and when connected to WIFI, sync that data with the powerful SAP HANAdatabase that sits on top of SAP Analytics Cloud where the interpreted data is visualized through stories.

The solution diagram above illustrates the combined architectural pattern for implementing a cloud-based system to analyze data coming in throughout the supply chain.
