at your Fingertips
Graphmantics leverages AI, graph databases and 30 years of SAP Enterprise application architecture experience to create a connected, integrated model of your business based on how you use your SAP ERP system today.
We call this an ‘Enterprise Business knowledge Map’.
Enterprise Business Knowledge Map
Graphmantics enriches the concept of Enterprise Knowledge Graphs to include business semantics and geography to create an Enterprise Business Knowledge Map.
Analysis of your configuration and data allows Graphmantics to discover your business processes, enterprise structures and business objects and understand how your business is currently operating.
More importantly, it connects these elements together and through geographic and temporal dimensions, creating a connected enterprise.
The map is extensible, allowing customers to connect project plans, spreadsheets or any information not contained in the SAP ERP system(s).
Many business problems in the Enterprise are not due to lack of data. Rather, it is because data is not connected and/or well understood. Connected, semantically enriched data allows the enterprise to navigate through multi-dimensional information seamlessly, as opposed to a fragmented report-based approach.
A few example scenarios are described below of how the Enterprise Business Knowledge Map could be used – with value drivers of risk and cost reduction – but most importantly, of Innovation acceleration.
Geographic Business Impact Analysis
Imagine a natural disaster happening in Vietnam, where some of the semi-finished components for your product comes from. With Graphmantics, you can navigate to the production plant, determine how many production orders exist, find connections to reservations, sales orders and customers in order to quickly determine the impact of the event. This buys your company precious time to react accordingly, reducing risks.
Broadly speaking, Digital transformation is about transforming manual or older digital processes with newer, fully digital technology and processes. Prior to this happening, companies must first understand how their business is running/deployed in their ERP system. The complexity of the systems, business change over time and organizational silos make this a non-trivial and expensive proposition in terms of resources and time. Graphmantics clearly exposes your business processes, active enterprise structure, functional areas and business data, allowing you to create a data-driven plan for your SAP centric transformation, including detailed testing plans. This will save hundreds to thousands of person hours in analysis time, automatically identifies what to transform and what to leave behind – potential savings of millions of dollars in infrastructure and licensing. Lastly, it will increase the success rate of your transformation by reducing project risk via clearly defined project scope at data level.
We believe that connected data is the fuel for innovation. In this ever accelerating world of change, it is imperative to empower people by creating transparency across the organization and provide the knowledge, backed by data, for companies to continuously innovate.
