We shot quite a few SAP startups videos and demos during the fall TechEd season. Two demos we haven’t featured until now are the HANA example from Basis Technologies and the mobility example from Linear Logics. Both demos feature mobile solutions with easy navigation that pull in SAP back end data in real-time.
While Linear Logic doesn’t use HANA at this time, they are pulling from the SAP APO system which has real-time “live cache” demand data. Both solutions help account reps determine next steps for customers and act on key triggers that would not have been available to them in real-time before.
Above in the feature window you can see the demo of the Basis Technologies “Predictive Customer Insight” solution given by CTO Craig Oliver. Craig walks Jon through the potential of assessing customer satisfaction issues in geo-located, real-time environment that pulls in the latest data from the SAP back end.
And here is the Linear Logics example of the “CDM” app, which pulls real-time APO data onto an iPad:
In this case, demand data is pulled from an APO system, giving the sales rep a new ability to accurately show the customer availability of products in real-time. The salesperson can review past performance and decide with the customer which products to order based on availability information. And, most importantly: the new order is also inputted into the back end system – in real time.
Disclosure: This video is part of a project commissioned by SAP to amplify startup activity and developer innovation on HANA, mobile, and the SAP cloud.
