What is SAP Analytics HUB?

SAP Analytics Hub empowers more users to make better decisions with the right analytics available to the right user at the right time. SAP Analytics Hub simplifies access to analytics scattered around multiple heterogeneous environments and grants users with actionable insights without compromising agility.


SAP Analytics Hub provides users with a single point of access to all the Business Intelligence (BI) corporate analytics that they need to complete their working tasks. Links to these BI analytics are found in assets that are presented as tiles. Each asset contains all the relevant information about its linked BI analytics.


Users provide BI Platform content report links in the assets and can access via Open document links. Currently all these links are accessed with BI Platform credentials manually.


From BI 4.2 SP05 onwards, BI platform supports SAML SSO integration to SAP Analytics Hub.

BI Users can access the BI Platform content seamlessly with SAML SSO from SAP Analytics HUB.
