Like many other businesses, De Watergroep was faced with a growing and complex reporting landscape - which included a self-service BI platform. Therefore, the action was required to allow people to easily find reports and to avoid a wild growth of duplicate or multiple versions of reports.
Unified report hub
To achieve this, dScribe was first rolled out as the central search and documentation portal for all reports in SAP BusinessObjects and SAP Analytics Cloud. Having a structured inventory of all reports has allowed the BI&Analytics team at De Watergroep to eliminate duplicate, old, or wrong versions of reports and thus ensure that all business decisions are based on the same data.
