What a year it has been? 12 Months ago, we were all planning our 2020 as usual- be it in business or in private… and then came COVID-19! Suddenly we had numerous questions to answer for which there were no manuals or emergency plans.
Right at the beginning we would like to thank you, your team, and your company for your flexibility, thanks to which all projects could continue smoothly and successfully.
Let me quote Satya Nadella “two years of digital transformation [occurred] in two months”. Despite everything negative, this is positive.
What happened at CubeServ in 2020?
A major internal milestone in our almost 20-year history was the “move” of all our IT systems to the AWS cloud.
We – our 140 consultants, management boards and back office – were active all year round, even if only remote, and we kept our fascination for business intelligence. In addition to software expertise, personnel growth is also an issue and our new office in Schwaig near Nuremberg creates space for it.
But a lot has also happened in the SAP environment.
With the SAP Analytics Cloud and the SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, there are two solutions on the market that focus on the end user or specialist area and thus fully support the principle of “Democratize BI”.
The SAP Analytics Cloud really took off in 2020 and is establishing itself on the market as the cloud-based solution for dashboarding, visualization, analysis, reporting, planning and predictive. Numerous new features and functions were rolled out in 2020 e.g. the extended planning functions. The well-known graphomate extensions are now also available.
The SAP Data Warehouse Cloud is generating increasing interest. SAP DWC is a cloud solution that enables you to create sophisticated analytics applications quickly and with agility. You can see new findings at a glance. We were able to successfully complete the first proof of concepts.
SAP published a new Statement of Direction for Analytics in October 2020.
Our HR team implemented the new PeoplePlan personnel cost planning several times this year. PeoplePlan is an intuitively operable cloud solution developed by us, which can be used productive within minutes and consumes data from various common HR systems. Let yourself be inspired by it too!
Our Healthcare team has continuously developed our best practice solution together with customers. The solution is complemented by VISMEDICA, a product from our partner Xantas.
With our partner Finance Diagnostics, we offer a diagnosis of the financial sector through reliable and fact-based assessment of the situation in comparison to the competition in order to ensure the right management interventions based on this; this quickly, individually, on a fixed budget and software-agnostic.
We have been offering SAP Basis services for many years. We are very pleased that we can noticeably expand this service in cooperation with local, renowned partners. In addition to the SAP BW / BI topics, we will support you now with all SAP Basis questions covering all SAP products.
Furthermore, together with our partners, we have extensive know-how in the field of cloud services – be it the SAP cloud, Hyperscalers such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, or cloud solutions from local providers.
Our partners are
- UMB Services AG (CH)
- retego it-management ag (CH)
- TakeASP AG (D)
- Consult / R GmbH (A)
Unfortunately, we had to cancel all events this year. But we very much hope that our CubeServ Congress can take place again on
- 8 June 2021 in Zurich (CH) and
- 10 June 2021 in Wiesbaden (D).
We have held numerous webinars; you can find the recordings under the following link.
Thank you very much for your trust in the past few months. We wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and a good start into 2021.
Stay safe & healthy!
The employees and management of the CubeServ Group
