Tactical Dashboard

The Tactical Dashboard in SAP Focused Run reports the status of key performance indicators for your solution landscapes. Based on a predefined set of scenarios and configured individual thresholds for your core systems components, it reports an overview of the health of your solutions. In addition, each indicator provides predefined historical views to perform detailed analysis and identify early good or bad trends. The performance of your SAP solution relies on capacity and health indicators like workload, volume, capacity, resources utilization and more.

With real-time indicators visualization, Tactical dashboards help you to quickly identify issues.

At the same time, through historical views, you can determine trends and perform detailed and predictive analysis for capacity and health indicators like workload, volume, capacity, resources utilization and more.

With the Tactical Dashboard, you can

  • Control solution status and trend against the forecasts
  • Comply with service level agreements
  • Monitor and identify early good and bad trends
  • Optimize the usage of resources
