Precog for the Enterprise – SAP Ariba ELT
By Sami Haddad
February 20, 2024

Welcome to Precog For The Enterprise, a once weekly review of why our Al-Powered ELT Tool is built for large scale customers. Today we’ll highlight Precog’s SAP Ariba Connector – leveraging Ariba’s existing API – designed for the enterprise.

What is SAP Ariba?

SAP Ariba is an enterprise class cloud based software product designed to house all aspects of purchasing, spend management, and supply chain. With SAP Ariba, large companies can connect to suppliers and buyers directly to ensure a global business network.

Why do I need to pull data from SAP Ariba?

Many of SAP Ariba’s largest customers want to optimize their procurement spend and processes. However, the in product analytic
reporting tool provided by SAP Ariba fails to capture all customer reporting needs.

Precog’s largest customers would like to answer questions such as: Which of my cost centers are out of compliance? How long does supplier onboarding take? Where is my center of excellence? With Precog, many of SAP Ariba’s largest customers are now moving millions of rows and billions of dollars worth of spend into their destination of choice to make real-time procurement process improvements, saving money, improving compliance, all with minimal time to value.

Where can customers view their SAP Ariba data today?

Precog supports leveraging Ariba’s existing APis to move data into the market’s largest data warehousing tools including: SAP Datasphere, Snowflake, Microsoft SQL Server 2019 and Synapse, Google Big Query, PostgresSQL, and Redshift.

Maybe I can do this myself…

As that might be – many Fortune 500 companies using Precog today approached this problem by building in-house. After $100,000+ of dollars worth of engineering spend, they approached Precog and found that our existing connector saved them 70% on operational and building costs and nearly 100% on maintenance costs.

What makes Precog Different?

Precog is the only market ready solution with a variety of features especially designed for the enterprise including:

1. SOC II Type II, GDRP and HIPPA compliance.

2. Automatic Analytic Ready Table generation through advanced Al implementations for Ariba. Complete no code environment.

3. Al based Primary Key detection – Precog is designed to first use the given Primary Key from Ariba, should that Primary Key not be accurate, Precog will find an original Primary Key to ensure data can be moved frictionlessly into your destination of choice.

4. Backend Column Filtering – By design Precog will bring in all available, including custom, Ariba fields. However, should Ariba share fields that might be corrupted (and therefore unable to be brought through via API) Precog will automatically filter those fields to allow the load to proceed.

5. Built for Volume – Precog has already moved tens of millions of rows for our largest enterprise customers without issue.

6. SAP Datasphere Compatibility – Precog is the only enterprise ready product able to move SAP Ariba data into SAP Datasphere; a platform specifically designed for Ariba customers to leverage SAC (SAP Analytics Cloud) to answer their most pressing procurement questions.

Why choose Precog?

Precog is the only Al-powered ELT tool allowing enterprise class customers to move the millions of rows required out of SAP Ariba and 2,000+ other sources today into the market’s leading data warehousing solutions.
