Škoda Auto

Increasing the quality of decision-making processes at all levels thanks to SAP Business Intelligence

homepage reference skoda auto - Škoda Auto - Sabris.com

Škoda Auto, a member of the VW Group, is the largest automobile manufacturer in the Czech Republic.
By deploying a variety of SAP BI tools, Škoda Auto has improved its decision-making processes at all levels – from real-time operational monitoring to tracking key company indicators.

Challenges the customer had to face

Heterogeneous data sources from many information systems generating large volumes of data that are difficult to structure.

Fragmented reports/analyses created by users in Excel with no broader context and limited data visualisation options.

Non-intuitive user interface discouraging end users from using it effectively.

Extensive diversification of the technologies used, often without interdependence between the different areas of responsibility.

SAP BI solution at Škoda Auto

Škoda Auto uses ‘cockpits’, or intuitive user interfaces, to clearly display important indicators about the company’s everyday life.

The options for specific indicators, as well as their appearance and placement, are easily configurable. Of course, the display options range from aggregated data to very detailed (“itemized”) reports.
