Zalaris has successfully implemented SAP Analytics Cloud for a UK client operating in the Professional Services industry and serving 8,000 employees. The implementation was completed in six weeks using Zalaris templates for HR metrics and KPIs. These accelerators delivered greater time to value compared to traditional Business Intelligence (BI) undertakings.
Zalaris today announced the successful completion of its first project implementing SAP Analytics Cloud. The scope – for a UK-based client in the Professional Services industry – covered a careful selection of HR metrics and KPIs within the Zalaris analytics template library, which Zalaris has meticulously developed over the course of many years.
Zalaris’ approach enabled a highly efficient rollout compared to traditional Business Intelligence (BI) projects. The six-week timetable resulted in substantially faster time to value, empowering the client to more effectively conduct and monitor daily HR statistics through comprehensive reporting across the enterprise of 8,000 employees.
The Zalaris solution provides an immediate and up-to-date perspective on trends captured through SAP SuccessFactors, and, while planned for the next rollout, easily connecting HR data to other relevant sources, such as finance and accounting, thereby more closely tying HR to the overall business. While HR and employee data are often explored in isolation from other available information, SAP Analytics Cloud includes all aspects and capabilities in relation to planning, predictive analytics and business intelligence – enabling a more proactive and holistic approach to Human Resource Management, while keeping personal data security at the heart of it all.
Increasing HR Relevance – in the Cloud
A joint cloud-based platform like SAP Analytics Cloud increases HR’s relevance to the overall business and allows a stronger alignment between HR strategies and overarching business strategies.
“Many clients seek a simple standard set of HR analytical reports to be delivered in shorter timeframes and with direct connection to their data source – the SAP SuccessFactors solution in this case,” explained Sunny Patel, Global HCM Cloud Executive Manager at Zalaris. “Regular updates ensure real-time information is always available, and HR ‘super users’ can easily build reports without actually needing to become BI experts.”
Patel noted that the SAP Analytics Cloud application addresses all the client’s requirements with standard reports delivered from the Zalaris Analytics library using the SAP SuccessFactors system as its source. Advantages range from automated regular refreshes of data, and time to value in weeks instead of months, with immediate usability that allows non-BI experts to utilize the reporting tool for everything from daily insights to boardroom-ready presentation content.
“The SAP Analytics Cloud solution has many standard SAP and non-SAP Cloud application connectors,” Patel added. “Organizations can quickly take the next step into the evolution of getting greater insight into the health of their company as well as planning and predictive capabilities for future business requirements across all divisions enterprise wide.”
