  • Requirements

    Automated Data Analysis

    To enable stakeholders to take the best possible decisions, the up-to-date availability of cross-divisional reports and analyses is essential. Until now, this process has been characterized by many manual work steps at Zott. Zott therefore wanted a solution that would allow data from management applications of the various departments to be fed in, automatically evaluated, and displayed on interactive dashboards and in standardized reports. The aim was to transfer the possibilities of simulation and visualization of data more to the specialist areas, while ensuring the conformity of the evaluations and analyses. For the implementation of this ambitious project, the dairy hired the digitization experts from Telekom and T-Systems MMS.

  • Solution

    Scalable Platform based on SAP Analytics Cloud

    SAP Analytics Cloud, a self-service platform for business intelligence, planning, and real-time analytics, was selected for a suitable tool. Telekom and T-Systems support Zott in introducing the platform with consulting, design, and development services throughout the Group in the Zott look and feel. Gradually, all business areas are connected, and existing data and analytics are transferred to SAP Analytics Cloud. The data comes from many different sources, e. g. SAP BW, SQL databases or flat files.
    The core element of the SAP Analytics Cloud is “stories” that are scalable. Telekom and T-Systems MMS accompany Zott in developing data models, reports and analyses as well as presenting the live data in a compact and comprehensive way. All division managers now receive automatically generated PowerPoint presentations with all relevant analyses. In addition, Zott can visualize energy management data on flow chart dashboards and filter them flexibly and interactively.
    During the further development of the platform, it will also be possible to work even more interactively with the SAP Analytics Cloud in the future beyond pure data analysis. For example, by being able to comment on numbers and automatically executing processes as a result. The motto here is: “From documentation to action.”

  • Benefit

    Taking secure decisions – always and everywhere

    With the introduction of the SAP Analytics Cloud, Zott benefits from standardized analyses and evaluations across all Group units. The previously time-consuming manual compilation of data from different sources is eliminated. This not only simplifies the analysis process, but also increases the quality of the evaluations. As a result, management receives extensive information on the basis of which decisions can be made. The tailor-made, machine-generated analyses also support employees in creating individual reports independently of the IT department.
    With the SAP Analytics Cloud, Zott has a future-proof, scalable solution that can be extended to all areas and grow with the company’s requirements. Since data and stories can be accessed independently of the devices used, flexible and location-independent work is supported - not only during a pandemic, an important benefit for any company.
