Power BI-Excel connector
Everyday SAP tasks can now be executed from a user-friendly environment. SAP and Microsoft announced a public preview of the Power BI-Excel connector at the Gartner BI & Analytics Summit in Las Vegas last week. With this add-in, customers can extend reliable enterprise data based on SAP BusinessObjects BI universe for their Excel users. On Thursday and Friday, these solutions can be viewed at the VNSG Congress in Maastricht.

Pieter Hendrikx, Business Intelligence lead at The Next View: '' The Power BI-Excel connector brings SAP to the workplace and can improve user-friendliness for a large group of SAP users. ''

SAP NetWeaver GWPAM
With SAP NetWeaver GWPAM (Gateway Productivity accelerator for Microsoft), SAP data can be directly unlocked in Microsoft Office applications. This offers employees the possibility to show their up-to-date SAP data directly from applications such as O365 or Outlook, PowerPoint and Excel. GWPAM offers seamless integration of SAP and Microsoft and ensures committed employees, increased productivity and lower IT costs. The Next View offers a GWPAM Rapid Deployment Service that is certified by the NetWeaver Gateway product team.
