SAP has made its 12sprints collaborative decision-making tool available via public beta and has formed a strategic research partnership with The 2.0 Adoption Council – a peer forum of IT and business leaders.
According to SAP, the 12sprints, the code name of a new collaborative decision-making application is a software-as-a-service (SaaS), that brings together people, information and methods to drive informed decision-making.
The new tool integrates components of the BusinessObjects Explorer technology, enabling users to analyse data and apply that analysis to the decision-making framework of 12sprints. The cloud-based interface allows teams to invite people from inside or outside the organisation, bring information into plain view for the entire team and employ interactive methods to collect feedback, brainstorm or analyse across the group.
SAP reported that it has become a strategic research partner with the 2.0 Adoption Council, and will offer its 12sprints to council members as a collaborative decision-making tool for group projects and as a test-bed for product feedback.
Marge Breya, executive vice president of SAP, said: It brings method to the madness, combining not only business intelligence and collaboration technology but also methods with a framework to help teams share intelligence and make better decisions that drive meaningful results. SAP has done a brilliant job helping enterprises run their businesses better, now we’re helping people do their work better.
