  • What is Hovitaga Data Visualizer?

    Hovitaga Data Visualizer is a lightweight OLAP analysis tool primarily for SAP systems. It can visualize SAP reports, queries and tables with maps, charts, pivot grid and more easy to read controls. It can also connect to SAP BW directly to visualize InfoCubes. Hovitaga Data Visualizer is a Microsoft Silverlight application that can be used in out-of-browser mode as a standalone application.

  • Why is it a breakthrough solution?
    It’s the first Silverlight based self service BI platform that can connect directly to SAP without any mapping, transformation or data replication. It provides a state-of-the-art user interface with many interactive features to visualize SAP business data. Existing SAP reports, queries, tables and InfoCubes can be used as data sources of data. An automatic geocoding feature makes the creation of interactive maps possible, even if only address data is available. All business data can be analyzed in real-time without loading or transformation.
  • Why do I need it?
    Hovitaga Data Visualizer is designed to provide a self-service BI platform instantly usable by non-technical users. Business decision makers do not have to involve the IT department to create new reports anymore. You can maximize the ROI of previous investments by reus­ing of existing data sources. Every penny invested in the development of SAP reports, queries or InfoCubes will have extra value if the business data is presented in a much more informative way.

    The overall TCO can be very low due to the lack of additional hardware and software costs and because the implementation does not require any programming.
