Updated: Mar 1


Powering the Future with Data Transparency

With renewable energy sources expected to make up 30% of the world’s electricity by 2024, clean energy providers are in a race to create sustainability for tomorrow and beyond at optimal efficiency. However, today’s constantly changing business conditions, are creating new pressures for organizations to identify hidden sources of savings and increase cashflows in rapid time. For companies made up of several subsidiaries, each operating through different systems and processes, this proves to be an even more difficult task. That’s why our recent customer, a US-based solar energy provider, turned to SAP Group Reporting coupled with SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) to streamline its consolidation and financial reporting processes to create data transparency and seamless planning and analysis for its entire organization. Through the predictive planning capabilities of SAC, our client is able to obtain greater insights into their operations by analyzing, forecasting, and reporting in a single location. By discovering new areas for optimization and automating manual tasks, our customer can truly deliver a modern financial close – all while creating sustainability!
