1 PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS AND BIG DATA WITH HANA TECHNOLOGY Predictive Analytics enables competitive advantage through the ability to analyze tremendous amounts of data, leverage analytical predictive models, and predict events. Data needs to be treated as a strategic asset and competitive differentiator. Organizations maintain mountains of historical data that continues to expand exponentially every day due to the digitized world. Organizations tend to be Data Rich but Information Poor. Transformation into an analytical organization is the key to competitive advantage. Advanced analytics provides fact-based action-oriented business advice. It falls under the following 3 broad categories: Descriptive Predictive Decisive A price increase of 10% on IPADS will reduce unit sales by 3%. 200,000 IPADS were sold last week. Reporting and Alerts Mining and Statistical Analysis Modeling and Forecasting To maximize profit for next week (holiday period), unit prices for IPADS should be $450. Business Optimization Predicting what if scenarios that are customized and reliable with the added benefit of location intelligence expertise allows clients to make decisions with confidence. It helps answer mission-critical business questions such as: Who are my customers? How far will my customers travel? How does the presence of competition affect my market opportunities? What will my customers buy? How many facilities would be required to support the market? Below are several Public Sector scenarios where predictive analytics could provide significant business value. There are many others. Fraud Detection Large Public Sector programs suffer from monetary leakage due to Fraud, Waste and Abuse. For example, the Revenue department could miss out on Tax and Revenue opportunities by exploitative and non-compliant customers. False Medicare and Medicaid claims are syphon away millions of dollars from State coffers. Predictive algorithms can help dramatically increase revenue with no net increase in headcount.
2 Supply Chain Risk Mitigation SAP HANA transforms businesses by Risk Profiles can be created for parts and subcontractors to identify those most at streamlining transactions, analytics, risk for adversely impacting the production planning, predictive, sentiment data schedule. Models based on Bill of processing on a single in-memory Materials, assembly and manufacturing schedule, natural factors such as weather, database so business can operate in expiring union contracts, etc., can be real-time. Dr. Hasso Plattner, SAP leveraged to create these risk profiles. Understanding the nature and timing and impact of such risks can help organizations develop mitigating strategies such as engaging alternate vendors, stockpiling inventory, and optimizing production and delivery schedules. Sales and Margin Optimization Sales forecasting coupled with product variants (technology, engines, avionics, weapons, etc.) can be utilized to optimize sales and margin. What happens to sales when the price drops on one option? How are the future sales of other options impacted? What is the forecast of overall sales, as well as by product and variant? How can you reduce produce variants while increasing profitability? Maintenance Predictability Analytical models can be developed to predict the probability of a certain part (tank, aircraft etc.) failure based on historical mean time to failure and other variables. Based on these statistical models, a forecasted maintenance schedule and parts replacement schedule can be derived. This could increase uptime, reliability and profitability or, in the case of public sector, enhance national security or effectiveness in the battlefield. Maintenance can be scheduled ahead of time or just in time reducing latency. Predicting Production Learning Curves Predicting production learning curves could be very useful for defense contractors bidding on fixed price aircraft, tank, or missile production. Contractors count on reducing the learning curve and depend on ramping down unit production cycle time to optimize cost and maximize profitability. Inaccurate predictions lead to significantly reduced margins and profitability and even loss. By analyzing the historical data from various programs and variables, a much more accurate costing model can be leverage to improve the accuracy of bids. Impact on Program Cost and Schedule Risks are constant threats to any large program. Program Managers need to assess the impact of risks on program cost and schedule and take necessary pre-emptive action. Predictively doing an advanced impact analysis based on what-if scenarios could highlight the magnitude of the risk and depth of impact. Based on this analysis, Program Managers can develop mitigation plans and take pre-emptive action. 2
3 Development Approach to Implement Predictive Analytics The development approach is anchored in: Business Rules Data Modeling Forecasting Algorithms Visualization SAP HANA Real-time Financial Planning, Intelligent Re-Stock, Warranty Management, Profitability Analysis, Genome Analysis, Demand Signal Management, SOP Planning, Customer Segmentation. The possibilities are endless... Revised Business Rules will be derived from the organization s business strategies and vetted thoroughly with the organization s leadership. New Key Performance Indicator (KPI) libraries will be created or existing libraries will be enhanced based on revised business rules. Before any Data Modeling can be done, data must be identified, validated and cleansed. The organization s transactional, conditional, and master data will be the source. Also, external macro-economic data, industry vertical data, and unstructured data may be considered. Once the relevant data has been identified and data has been cleansed and validated, the Data Model will be built. Statistical and mathematical Forecasting Algorithms will be developed against the Data Model and a series of simulations (what-if scenarios) will be run on known time periods to validate the data model and algorithms. Based on the results, fine tuning and adjustments can be made to the data model, forecasting algorithm, or both. A Proof of Concept (POC) is an ideal approach for Visualization. The Proof of Concept will begin with the Blueprint Phase followed by the Data Model Development and Concept Validation. The following activities will performed within each phase: 3
