With FIVE1 CSE knowledge can be stored directly to the context. Either in a dedicated area, or directly in the data table. By combining systematically ascertained and manually entered information, information is transparent and the differences in comprehensible decisions are explicable. Last but not least with FIVE1 CSE a company-wide understandable view of key figures can be established.

The main goal what management in the 21st century must achieve is increasing the productivity of knowledge workers. Peter Drucker

Knowledge is defined as an inventory of facts characterized by the greatest possible degree of certainty available for individuals or groups. Knowledge is information soaked with the context of experience.

Information is a data component which caused a difference in the observer by the observer-dependent relevance.

Data is something that can be perceived, but not necessarily.

You invest high amounts in providing information. Get more out of your data with FIVE1 CSE! According to a study conducted by the IDC on behalf of McKinsey, the productivity of employees can be increased by up to 25% by using "social" technologies.

Analytical processes are becoming even more important in business. Numbers reflect the facts precisely but conclusions, principles or measures are not included directly.

The frontend of FIVE1 CSE is fully developed in C# and seamlessly integrated into the SAP Analysis for Office. Thus we leverage the SAP platform recommended for device-independent reporting, planning and dashboarding.
Annotations can be of any length and can have almost any formating. All information on the respective context is stored in the SAP Business Warehouse centrally. During ongoing operation neither a customizing or modification in the backend, nor a special data structure is needed. With very little extra effort the comments can be further used in all other SAP frontend tools as well.

Initially the available information associated with FIVE1 CSE data source(s) will be collected in the frontend. These are mainly meta-data and the parsed line structure. These are passed to the SAP backend along with the settings made by the user.

Each single comment request goes through basically the same procedures as the data for loading enterprise data warehouses. Except it is fully automatic.
In the first step in a single request it is checked whether a dimension is an Info Object by checking whether meta data exist. If meta data was found these settings are applied on this key value. The spectrum ranges here from simple type conversions through applying conversion functions to the resolution of stapled key references.

Besides MultiProviders, Cubes, DSOs and aggregation levels FIVE1 CSE also supports queries as a data source. Even query structures, such as restricted key figures are evaluated. Also BEx variables are taken into account in the key recognition. Even when using within restricted key figures this is not a problem. The detection and resolution of compounded infoobjects are supported with only few restrictions.
