K4 Analytics


Plan, Collect & Embed anywhere with K4

K4 Analytics is the missing piece of the puzzle in your analytics platform. As a smart extension, it is fully integrated into Power BI, Tableau, Qlik Sense or Microsoft Teams and offers a familiar spreadsheet interface with write-back functionality.

K4 Analytics Logo

K4 integrates fully into your existing system landscape and writes your data directly to common relational databases such as Microsoft SQL Server, Azure SQL, Snowflake or Oracle. Whether on-premise or cloud-based.  

The user interface is created and customized using Excel templates, allowing existing company templates to be used. Views, triggers and stored procedures of the underlying databases can also be accessed at any time.

The following application scenarios can be implemented with K4:


From the simple recording of plan values or master data to the complex mapping of company-wide, integrated planning processes: The integration of analysis, reporting and planning ensures consistent control approaches and diverse application scenarios directly in the analytics platform.

K4 maps all the functions of classic planning systems:

  • Documentation of analyses and reports
  • Direct recording of target figures as part of analyses
  • Mapping of complete, comprehensive planning scenarios, such as sales, cost center, HR or financial planning
  • Workflows and blocking
  • Conditional formatting & data splashing via historical or individual distributions


Tedious data collection and merging via Excel files are a thing of the past - regardless of whether it's for month-end closing processes, merging for reporting/analysis or status queries. Controlled and secure governance via audit trail down to cell level with workflow including commenting enables simple, smart data collection. Whether within the analytics platform or in Microsoft Teams - the complete integration of the entire rights structure ensures efficiency gains.


The open integration of K4 into relational database technologies and the optional bidirectional connection to ERP systems, such as SAP, mean that operational processes for recording data can be rethought. Bulky data entry screens for prices, the maintenance of parts lists and recipes or address maintenance in CRM are a thing of the past with K4. Your data entry can be simplified without much effort and optimized using Excel logic. 

With over 20 years of planning know-how and expertise in data warehousing and all common BI platforms (e.g. Qlik, Power BI and Tableau), we support you in exploiting the potential of K4 Analytics. From process mapping to designing the right data model, data connection, application creation and integration into your existing BI system through to user training - we will be happy to assist you.

It was amazing how fast the solution with Board was implemented by celver in intensive cooperation with us. We had very specific requirements for the MFP solution and honestly, we were surprised that we already didn't have to plan the next season with Excel.
