WHAT IS RBE PLUS?

The most com­pre­hens­ive as­sess­ment tool suite for eval­u­at­ing SAP en­ter­prise data.

RBE Plus Configuration The ques­tion­naire in RBE Plus Con­fig­ur­a­tion al­lows us to cus­tom­ize your in­di­vidu­al pro­ject. The pre­cisely fit­ting con­fig­ur­a­tion in the de­livered trans­port re­quest en­sures that only the re­quired data is ex­trac­ted with max­im­um ef­fi­ciency and ab­so­lute reliability. 
RBE Plus Extracts You can down­load these Con­fig­ur­a­tion Files for data ex­trac­tion in RBE Plus Ex­tracts. The app gives you im­me­di­ate feed­back on wheth­er your up­loaded ex­tracts are fine, sav­ing you valu­able time when cre­at­ing and ex­chan­ging files.
RBE Plus Analytics The ex­tracts are now pre­pared in the center­piece RBE Plus Ana­lyt­ics. The in­tel­li­gent ana­lys­is lo­gic com­bines your data with busi­ness know­ledge to pro­duce top-qual­ity results.
RBE Plus Results The mean­ing­ful res­ults are presen­ted in RBE Plus Res­ults. They can be ex­plored in­ter­act­ively and are trace­able down to the smal­lest de­tail. Our ex­perts present your res­ults us­ing the col­lab­or­at­ive story fea­ture. The most rel­ev­ant find­ings and in­ter­re­la­tion­ships are vividly put in­to con­text. This is how we de­liv­er the highest pos­sible trans­fer of know-how and con­crete re­com­mend­a­tions for action.

BENEFITS OF RBE PLUS

The RBE Plus Meth­od was born in sci­ence and de­veloped in co­oper­a­tion with SAP SE.

Comprehensive Drilldown

Even highly com­plex ana­lys­is res­ults can be pro­cessed trans­par­ently and thus com­pre­hens­ibly. At least we can prove it. Struc­tur­ing such res­ults and map­ping them on sev­er­al levels is part of our daily busi­ness. At the highest level, this means ag­greg­at­ing data read from the sys­tem. The next step is to rep­res­ent the un­der­ly­ing facts with the help of mean­ing­ful key fig­ures and to visu­al­ize them us­ing dash­boards. For fur­ther il­lus­tra­tion, we use ap­peal­ing and in­ter­act­ive present­a­tions. The ef­fect for our cus­tom­ers: Deep Dives as de­sired — pos­sible at any point of the ana­lys­is. In this way, res­ults can be traced back to the smal­lest de­tail. All this without los­ing the fo­cus of the overview.

Well-Founded Test Logic

Ex­tract large amounts of data from the sys­tem — and then fil­ter them ac­cord­ing to their rel­ev­ance. Many do this, but one doesn’t have to im­it­ate it. We prefer a more ser­vice-friendly al­tern­at­ive: rule-based quer­ies. Data already passes through a check lo­gic when it is with­drawn from the sys­tem. This is based on ex­tens­ive pro­cess know­ledge of a tech­nic­al and busi­ness nature. Thus, the res­ults are not only visu­al­ized, but also eval­u­ated. An­oth­er ad­vant­age: Thanks to the auto­mated gen­er­a­tion of res­ults, we are able to provide our cus­tom­ers with ana­lys­is res­ults ex­cep­tion­ally fast.

Insightful Interpretation

Pure ana­lys­is res­ults are of­ten not clear on their own. Vari­ous in­ter­pret­a­tions are pos­sible. We, more pre­cisely our busi­ness man­age­ment ex­perts, know how to clas­si­fy the res­ults cor­rectly. In ad­di­tion to their ex­pert­ise, they draw on the ex­per­i­ence gained in more than 1,500 cus­tom­er pro­jects. This way, our cus­tom­ers re­ceive an in­ter­pret­a­tion of the res­ults that is fully tailored to their fu­ture scen­ari­os and pro­ject goals. Work­shops and ag­greg­ated find­ings con­vey the in­sights gained — from the key fig­ure level down to de­tailed res­ults with spe­cif­ic peculiarities.

Economical Data Extraction

Full ana­lys­is without com­plete de­duc­tion? Yes, this much safer meth­od is used. Not by oth­ers, but by us. We only ex­tract the rel­ev­ant data from the SAP sys­tem for this pur­pose. The ex­trac­ted data de­pends on the us­age scen­ario and pro­ject ob­ject­ive of the cus­tom­er, and is then in­di­vidu­ally con­figured ac­cord­ing to cus­tom­er-spe­cif­ic in­form­a­tion and data pro­tec­tion re­quire­ments. This way, our cus­tom­ers re­ceive trans­par­ent, com­pre­hens­ible, re­li­able res­ults. And the ne­ces­sary flex­ib­il­ity — from ag­greg­a­tion to rel­ev­ant in­di­vidu­al cases.

HOW DOES RBE PLUS WORK?

Everything in our app world fits to­geth­er seam­lessly. Everything out of one hand. Everything with our qual­ity and se­cur­ity standards.

An RBE Plus Pro­ject is ef­fi­ciently im­ple­men­ted us­ing web-based apps. These apps are smartly net­worked and cre­ate the struc­ture for the pro­ced­ure. They con­tain the rel­ev­ant work­flow steps and can be used in­de­pend­ently, re­gard­less of time zones.

They pro­cess data streams im­me­di­ately, link them to know­ledge and make the pro­cess par­tic­u­larly agile through extrapolation.

HOW TO GET STARTED

In our Cus­tom­er Lounge, you will find all in­form­a­tion about our ser­vices, ana­lyses, pro­ject pro­cesses, etc. Here you can have all your ques­tions answered. Please con­tact us to have your ac­cess activated.

THE HISTORY OF RBE PLUS

The RBE Plus Meth­od ori­gin­ated in sci­ence and was de­veloped in co­oper­a­tion with SAP SE.

Prof. Dr. Rain­er Thome

The col­lab­or­a­tion between IBIS Prof. Thome AG and SAP SE has de­veloped continuously.

The meth­ods be­hind the Re­verse Busi­ness En­gin­eer­ing (RBE) ap­proach were de­veloped between 1998 and 2000 in a dis­ser­ta­tion at the Uni­ver­sity of Würzburg in the group of Prof. Thome. In co­oper­a­tion with SAP SE, the RBE meth­od was ap­plied to SAP sys­tems and used to ana­lyze them.

Since then, IBIS Prof. Thome AG has con­tinu­ally im­proved and ex­pan­ded the meth­od. The con­tents of this pro­pri­et­ary de­vel­op­ment are avail­able to our cus­tom­ers with­in the RBE Plus Analyses.

The Re­verse Busi­ness En­gin­eer­ing ap­proach com­bined with the ex­tens­ive con­tent with­in the RBE Plus Ana­lyses provide deep in­sights in­to pro­duct­ive SAP sys­tems by us­ing auto­mated ana­lys­is in the background.

A vari­ety of ABAPs for ana­lys­is are im­ple­men­ted to sort and eval­u­ate trans­ac­tion us­age, en­hance­ments, cus­tom­iz­ing, mas­ter and trans­ac­tion data.
