Join this session to learn about the best techniques to derive business insights using Microsoft BI tools connecting to the SAP ERP and SAP BI Platform. We outline best approaches to connect to the SAP business system including SAP ECC, CRM, Business Warehouse (BW) and SAP BI Platform using Microsoft Excel 2013 and SharePoint BI platform. We also talk about SAP Net weaver Gateway to consume all sorts of SAP-generated data via OData feeds. Fifty percent of the session will be live demos of Microsoft BI connecting the SAP system.
In this session, we discuss how to transform the economics of hybrid clouds built with Cloud OS. We look at the process of metering granular usage and cost data for Microsoft System Center 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V, Windows Azure Pack, Azure public cloud, and other non-Microsoft IT resources, and then transform it into actionable financial intelligence. We discuss a variety of use cases, such as multi-tenant chargeback and billing, demand forecasting, profit management, technology trends, and what-if modeling, to get a better understanding of how enterprises and service providers are using IT Financial Management to optimize costs and drive greater business agility with the Microsoft cloud platform and Cloud Cruiser.
In this session Michael will talk about what types of cloud services are available and what their functions are. The differences between worker roles and instances of these services will be looked at. How these instances can be effectively scaled up or down depending on business need will also be covered. Role life cycle, service configuration and diagnostics will be discussed as well as different approaches to upgrading and deployment of the services.
