Title: SAP Preferred Success: Unlocking Value with Design Discovery Checks

Explore the ultimate guide for SAP Preferred Success in SAP Analytics Cloud to unleash the full potential of your analytics journey: (Final)-Comprehensive Guide to Preferred Success for SAP Analytics Cloud


In my previous blog Elevating SAP Consumption with SAP Preferred Success: A Comprehensive Guide, we explored the SAP Preferred Success program, highlighting its five key activities supported by three programs that align with a customer's lifecycle. Today, we delve deeper into one of these activities: Design Discovery Checks. These service are designed to introduce customers, especially those with a low maturity level in domains like Analytics or Data, to the standard content available within SAP solutions. Specifically, we'll focus on Design Discovery Checks within SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) and how they help organizations leverage prebuilt SAC stories and Digital Boardrooms on SAP-supported data sources to minimize the time to value.


Design Discovery Checks in SAP Analytics Cloud:

Design Discovery Checks are a vital component of SAP Preferred Success, offering customers valuable insights into standard business content available in SAP Analytics Cloud. These workshops aim to bridge the gap between SAP solutions and customer analytics requirements. Here's what you need to know about them:


  1. Exploring Standard Business Content: One of the primary objectives of Design Discovery Checks is to introduce customers to the wealth of standard business content provided within SAP Analytics Cloud. This content includes prebuilt SAC stories, Digital Boardrooms, and models designed to streamline various business processes.


  1. Process of Content Import: Participants will gain insights into the process of importing relevant SAC content into their SAP Analytics Cloud instance. This step-by-step guide helps organizations identify and select the right content to import, tailored to their specific business needs.


  1. Navigating SAP Content Folder: Attendees will receive a walkthrough of the SAP_Content folder, a repository housing the standard content available for use. Understanding the organization and structure of this folder is crucial for efficiently utilizing SAP Analytics Cloud resources.


  1. Demos and Practical Usage: The workshop includes live demonstrations of SAC Stories, Digital Boardrooms, and Models within the SAP_Content. This hands-on experience allows participants to see how these resources can be applied in real-world scenarios.


  1. Documentation Overview: Design Discovery Checks also provide an overview of standard content documentation, helping participants better understand the selected data sources and how they can be effectively integrated into their analytics projects.



To maximize the benefits of Design Discovery Checks, SAP highly recommends completing the SAP Analytics Cloud Introduction and Capabilities Webinars. These webinars provide foundational knowledge that will prove invaluable during the workshops.



The primary objectives of Design Discovery Checks in SAP Analytics Cloud are as follows:


  1. Introduce Standard Business Content: Familiarize participants with the variety of standard business content available within SAP Analytics Cloud.


  1. Empower Decision-Making: Provide knowledge on how to identify the right content for import, tailored to specific business needs, enabling better decision-making.


  1. Share Best Practices: Offer best practices for modifying business content and repointing data sources to align with an organization's unique data.



Discovery Checks are beneficial for a wide range of professionals involved in SAP Analytics Cloud implementations, including:


- Business Architects

Design Discovery Checks within SAP Preferred Success play a pivotal role in helping organizations harness the full potential of SAP Analytics Cloud. By introducing customers to standard business content and guiding them through the process of content import and utilization, these workshops empower businesses to make informed decisions, reduce time to value, and maximize their investment in SAP solutions.
