Untangling the Current Procurement Technology Developments for Buyers and Decision Makers

Last month, June 12, we held a webinar discussion with global procurement and supply chain consulting firm, GEP . The topic was ‘Procurement Technology Developments – Separating the Hype from the Reality,’ and it was designed to help CPOs and procurement practitioners make sense of the many technology developments happening in the market right now, the new solutions and digital resources that soon will be impacting the procurement industry, and their place in the procurement organisation. We were genuinely delighted with the high number of registrants, and even more pleased with the number that actually turned out on the day! It’s quite normal, we have found, to lose about 40% of webinar registrants on the day, but on this occasion we retained a good 80% - which just goes to show how important this topic is for procurement leaders and those decision makers who are using tech to drive the organisation...

How to add a Unique Identifier to a SharePoint list or library

Did you know that every time you create an item in a SharePoint list or add a document to the SharePoint document library, it gets its unique ID number? This might become handy in specific business scenarios. With this post, I would like to show you how you can add a unique identifier to a SharePoint list or library for various business needs. How does Unique Identifier work? The idea is pretty simple. Essentially each entry in a SharePoint List or a Document Library gets a number (ID). The first entry gets 1, and then it is sequential from there (incremented by 1). Benefits of the ID column The ID number is unique. If you delete a list item or a document, it is never used againID Number (unique identifier) is auto-incremented for you automatically Limitations of the ID Column ID Column is unique to the list or libraryIf you use ID Column to...

New in Tableau Prep Builder: Visual filtering and improved data standardization

Preparing data for analysis often involves setting up filters, duplicating fields, or standardizing values—all error-prone tasks that often involve writing complicated calculations. In the newest release of Tableau Prep Builder (2019.2.3) , we’ve simplified your workflow. A new visual filter allows you to select distinct values to filter, including ones not in your sample. Duplicating fields is now possible with a single click. Lastly, Recommendations detect and suggest data roles (real-world meanings of your data values) to help validate your data fields. They also now automatically match invalid values to valid ones. Last year, we added Data Roles to Tableau Prep Builder to help you automatically identify data quality issues, and in April we let you automatically fix invalid values by replacing them with the closest valid values using the Data Role Matches grouping algorithm. This one-click action saves you time cleaning up your messy data, but it only works with...

Writing/Reading Large R dataframes/data.tables -- Addendum.

After posting my most recent  blog  using  census data  to illustrate handling "large" dataframes in R exploiting fst and feather file formats, I realized I could have taken the analysis a step further. Recall my then description of "demographic information on both American households and individuals (population). The final household and population data stores are quite large for desktop computing: household consists of almost 7.5M records with 233 attributes, while population is just under 15.8M cases and 286 variables." In addition to working with the two individual dataframes/data.tables, one could also consider the merge of household and population. For each household, there are one or more population records; each population record is, in turn, for one and only one household. Indeed, there's an attribute, serialno, that can be used to join household and population to a resulting data.table of almost 15.8M records and over 500 attributes -- consuming in excess of...

SAP Projects – Avoiding Failures

A few days ago, Waldemar Falinski and I had an interesting discussion on the subject, started over a LinkedIn post – by a Software Litigator – about who is responsible for the project results. System Integrator, who has to execute the project and deliver the Solution,Customer, who acquires the Solution to meet some of its business needs, orImplementation Approach, which supports and ensures a certain type of project results. We also talked about the key capabilities of SAP Consultants, which contribute to the successful deployment and usage of the solutions. Here, in this blog, I have highlighted the key points and have copied a part of the dialog for reference. According to the lawyer, the failure is due to the mismatch between the System Integrators’ Capabilities of Selling and Delivering Solutions. He stated, When an ERP software system implementation fails, often the failure is because the integrator either did not fully...

SAP Fiori 3: agora você vai utilizar muito mais o Fiori.

Ha muito tempo atras em uma galáxia muito muito distante…  Fiori 1, foi liberado em 2013.Fiori 2, foi liberado em 2016 (vamos acordar que ainda tem coisas que não agradam tanto…)Fiori 3, foi anunciado em 2018, mas de fato liberado ha alguns poucos meses, e agora agrada muito mais que a versão antiga. O Fiori 3 é muito bacana! A começar pelo novo tema, SAP Quartz Light que é bem diferente do Belize, e privilegia um layout muito mais simples e limpo, trazendo uma maior possibilidade de integração e customização do layout com as necessidades dos clientes. Fonte da imagem: https://experience.sap.com/news/sap-fiori-3 Em paralelo, o novo layout valoriza muito a área de notificação e integração com o SAP CoPilot, que é o assistente digital da SAP e que terá um protagonismo muito maior a partir da versão 1909. Caso você não tenha visto nada sobre o SAP CoPilot, e acredita que conversar...

Paving Your Way Through SAP Digital Transformation Part 3

In our first blog post of this series , we talked about S/4HANA as the path forward for organizations who are using traditional ERP applications or planning to move their non-SAP ERP applications to SAP.  In our second post , we highlighted multiple paths to choose from for successful implementation of S/4HANA. In this blog post, we will discuss how you can make security and compliance an enabler rather than see it as a roadblock for your move to S/4HANA. Once your organization has decided on the path that best meets your business objectives, SAP recommends organizations use the  SAP Activate methodology  to perform complex digital transformation or cloud migration projects to SAP S/4HANA. SAP Activate combines best practices, proven implementation methodology, and guided configuration tools to fast-track the deployment of SAP S/4HANA. SAP Activate consists of 6 different phases: Discover  In this first phase, discover the solutions capabilities, understand the...

Vikas Kumar Singh — Member of the Month, July 2019

Although I’ve been part of the SAP Community team for nearly 3 years, I’m still a relative newbie compared to those who’ve been active since the SDN days — heck, even since the SCN days. That means when we gave members the ability to personalize their badge showcases for their profiles, my options were somewhat limited. I didn’t earn any of the cool badges from yesteryear because I wasn’t around to earn ’em. That’s why I love seeing those older badges displayed in someone’s reputation. They give me a deeper appreciation for those who were making quality contributions long before I came along, and I get to admire the badges I don’t know so well. I had this type of experience with July’s Member of the Month. He was on my radar for receiving the Avid Solver badge recently, plus he’s been doing pretty well in the karma department. (I’m referring...

NDC in the Corporate Space and Concur Travel

Corporate travel content distribution is evolving at anaccelerating pace. The industry hasn’t seen this pace of changesince online travel booking started to take off in the latenineties. Air, hotel, and car distribution are all changing, butin this blog post I’d like to address the significant changes inair distribution, particularly the adoption of IATA’s New Distribution Capability (NDC) . Executive summary:SAP Concur wants to ensure that our customers can access allthe relevant travel content, regardless of booking channel.Concur Travel customers rely on their TMC (travel managementcompany), and most prefer to wait for NDC to be available via theGDS (Global Distribution System).For customers who want NDC content prior to it being fullyavailable in the GDS, SAP Concur has been piloting with earlyadopter TMCs and customers to leverage our existing Select Accessinfrastructure to deliver content from Lufthansa Group and BritishAirways.  These pilots are close to completion and pilots withAmerican Airlines and United Airlines are in the...

How the Experience Economy Blurs Industry Boundaries with Data and Technology

Why do people buy cars? To get around. There may be other reasons, but in the end, what people want is mobility. Car ownership, however, comes with associated trappings. You’ll need a license and insurance. You may also need financing. And don’t forget, if you want to protect your investment, you’re on the hook for maintenance and repairs. Or so it is with an ownership-based business model where a manufacturer makes a product (the car) and you (the customer) take it away. The rest is up to you. Give them mobility Today, however, there’s another model – one that is driven by data and technology. Call it the outcome-based model. If what customers want is mobility, then give them mobility as a service. This is the model followed by Care by Volvo, a mobility subscription service. In the era of the “experience economy,” Volvo recognizes that at least a certain segment...
