Analytical Stories in SAP Analytics Cloud, Embedded Edition

What’s the Business Need?

The standard app, Aging Report for Accounts Payable, gives an insight of the amounts owed to suppliers, broken down in time intervals. However, it doesn’t offer a drill-down functionality to check the detailed breakdown of the output. You must monitor the payable status in more detail.

With SAP Analytics Cloud, you can transform raw data into powerful visualizations through stories. You can create custom stories with the Marketing Custom Stories application. You can create these stories from scratch or by copying an existing story and changing it to fit your needs. You can customize your stories using different visualizations such as charts, graphs, tables, and other visual elements.

To learn how to create custom analytical stories, watch this video.
