SAP Software Government solutions are being adopted by many federal government agencies and now becoming mainstream in federal government environment. The logical next step is to build business intelligence capability to analyze the data.

About the SAP BI tool: It is a reporting system which seamlessly connects with the SAP Software to extract the data so the user can report on the data with user friendly front end tools. SAP BI can also connect to other external data sources. The main advantage of connecting to SAP Software is that SAP Software has inbuilt extractors in the system. The extractors can be leveraged to quickly deploy the SAP BI System. These sap extractors are pre built they have all the business rules implemented.

Once the SAP Software is stable, clients want to install SAP Business intelligence. This is because running reports in SAP Software directly degrades the SAP System performance.

This way they do not have spend money on expensive software
