SAS and SAP/HANA (with SAP/APO)

Hello,

 

I request general opinions&experiences in terms of SAS and SAP/HANA+APO collaboration or substitution. I am especially interested in forecasting and optimization, this is 1. whether it is still true that SAS forecasting on top of SAP is an improvement for "standard" forecasting tasks like demand planning, 2. that optimization with SAP is probably sligthly performing better (cplex) 3. are there any experiences regarding real-time and automated process control applications in production plants regarding predictive maintenance or quality control using SAS and SAP or SAS in comparison to SAP?

 

Would have been more specific, if I could; thankful for likewise - but not sarcastic - replies :-) .

 

Thanks&kind regards

Hello -

This recording might be of interest: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abtdS7EpVdU - as you may know Nestle is a large SAP APO customer. Marcel explains why they are using SAS for statistical forecasting tasks instead.

You will find additional information by Nestle on WWW - for example: http://www.supplychainmovement.com/andreas-gartner-of-nestle-on-forecasting-track-the-mad-bulls/

Thanks,
