In recent years we got again and again asked by customers whether it would be possible to track how intensive Business Process Analytics and Business Process Operations Dashboards  are used by the user community to which it was rolled-out. As of SAP Solution Manager 7.1 support package 14, this kind of usage analysis is available. This functionality will allow you to track, that you did not just activate another SAP Solution Manager functionality, but that this functionality is really used operationally.

If you access the Maintain BPO Reporting Infrastructure section from within your Business Process Operations work center, then you see a new tab strip Usage Analysis.

First you get an overview about the number of times that Business Process Analytics / Business Process Operations Dashboards got executed within a given time frame.

Then you get to see the top 5 users that executed the respective application most often.

After this you get detailed sections per application. In those sections you can also see which key figures were executed when.

Then comes a section where you can see which key figures have been executed most/least often (no matter if the key figure was accessed via Analytics or Dashboard(s). You can also run an optional analysis if key figures exist where the data collection was activated, but where the collected data was never consumed so far.

The last section allows to check for a historic trend for a single selected key figure.
