XP3 puts vast amounts of data at the fingertips of a distributed sales and management team, in a user-friendly and intuitive environment.
“Achieving SAP integration certification is of strategic importance to Interactive Edge,” said Zel Bianco, President and CEO of Interactive Edge. “Certified integration provides a high level of assurance to customers of the seamless integration between XP3 and SAP NetWeaver, leading to faster implementations and reduced costs through pre-tested interfaces. It also helps verify for customers that existing investments in SAP solutions will be protected, including data integrity. Through certification, we also gain enhanced market exposure, expanded business opportunities and visibility among one of the largest customer bases in the world.”
Turning Data into Revenue
Powerful enterprise solutions from SAP, such as the SAP NetWeaver Business Intelligence (SAP NetWeaver BI) solution, have made huge amounts of data available for strategic business units to access, mine and analyze. This proliferation of data and mining/analysis tools can be a windfall of opportunities to drive profitability throughout the organization. XP3 Suite is designed specifically to turn this data into revenue. Integrated via the OLE DB for OLAP certification scenario, XP3 Suite 5.2 works with SAP NetWeaver BI to make vast amounts of data readily available to distributed sales and management teams in familiar Microsoft® Office applications they use every day.
XP3’s powerful data analysis engine and flexible end-user tools summarize and visualize the right data for the right audience. Integrated with Microsoft Office, XP3 tools easily create visually stunning, data-driven presentations directly in Microsoft® PowerPoint®. The results include concise and actionable presentations, complete with intelligent summaries, charts and graphs that can be understood by business users of all kinds. The Gartner Group refers to this as XP3’s Point of Impact, because this is where and how a corporation’s investment in data and technology converts into revenue.
Thousands of sales and marketing professionals from the most successful manufacturers of consumer goods currently use XP3 to automatically develop and populate data-driven sales and management presentations against data sets as large as hundreds of gigabytes, with hundreds of thousands of members in certain dimensions. In addition to freeing up valuable resources across the enterprise, XP3’s PowerPoint presentations provide field users and management with intelligent findings about the data in the warehouse, as well as the ability to customize the presentation and sales message on the fly.
