“Live Business” is SAP’s Newest Philosophy for Better Data

SAP is Humanizing Companies with “Live Business” Motto

live businessBusinesses should become more human–more alive. That’s the idea that SAP expressed at this year’s SAPPHIRE NOW conference in Orlando, Florida. The annual SAP conference opened with CEO Bill McDermott urging businesses to develop empathy for their customers. Now, SAP has unveiled a brand new mantra that should help enterprises fully embrace humanness in everything they do: “Live Business.” This new motto won’t replace the old “Run Simple,” however–it actually goes hand in hand with that idea. According to SAP, “When you Run Live, you Run Simple, and when you Run Simple, you win.”

Live Business, Live Data

SAP’s business software has long empowered growing companies with the power of real-time data. The instantaneous speed of SAP Business One analytics powered by the SAP HANA platform grants business owners the ability to access brand new data the moment they need it. When your enterprise resource planning (ERP) software can provide vast amounts of the latest information, you can easily make critical business decisions and improve your company’s performance across the board in a very short period of time. In today’s outrageously competitive digital economy, speed of information and action is a breaking point for too many growing enterprises. That’s why SAP strives to provide the fastest, most accurate analytical business programs available.

However, fast access to data is no longer the main draw of SAP’s powerful ERP products–although it certainly remains one of the top selling points. With their “Live Business” campaign, SAP will push the capabilities of today’s most powerful enterprise software to new heights, using real-time customer data more effectively than ever before.

Preparing for the Future with Real-Time Business Analytics

The thing about data is that it changes rapidly. Human beings are prone to change, and often do so at the drop of a hat. Your customers could be interested in one thing one day and another thing the next. SAP showcased this concept in a short video spot at SAPPHIRE NOW. In the clip, members of a small business organization use advanced technology to follow one customer’s shifting passions minute by minute. The customer’s interests seem to last only a few seconds at a time, so the business would have a hard time catering to her needs in real-time. Finally, they use predictive analytics to forecast what she’ll be into in six months. That way, they have ample time to research her future interests and develop a plan to meet her needs long before she even develops them.

Although it’s unlikely that your customers will change in a matter of seconds, you still must plan for the future as effectively as possible. Real-time data can provide predictive insights that will help you prepare for changes in consumer demands before they happen. But running a Live Business means being able to adapt to those changes as seamlessly and fluidly as possible. SAP’s cutting edge ERP systems can help small and mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) adopt the very human qualities of adaptability, agility, and of course empathy. With these traits, your business can become even more efficient, productive, and successful than ever before.
