Most companies store useful information about their employees, customers and partners in many heterogeneous systems such as ERPs, CRM Databases, HR Systems, project databases or directories. Relationships between those entities are often lost or difficult to navigate through. In large enterprises or networks, it is still very difficult to find people having specific skills or understand how we relate to other individuals, groups or customers.
The SAP Social Network Analyzer help you explore and capture relations between individuals, groups or any type of entity, extract people centric information and automatically create people profiles and business networks. All of this by leveraging existing backend systems and ad hoc relationship creation.
The SAP Social Network Analyzer solution today includes a server component, a set of REST APIs and a powerful, user friendly client.
During my talk I will give you an overview and demo of the prototype as well as discuss opportunities moving forward.
