SAP unveils new data management solution
Global enterprise software company SAP India, has unveiled new solutions and partnerships in the area of data management. The company revealed its SAP Datasphere solution, a data management portfolio, which gives customers easy access to business-ready data.
According to SAP, accessing and using data located in disparate systems and locations–across cloud providers, data vendors and on-premises systems–has been a complex challenge. Customers had to extract data from original sources and export it to a central location, losing critical business context along the way and recapturing it only through ongoing, dedicated IT projects, and manual effort. With today’s announcements, SAP Datasphere helps eliminate this hidden data tax, enabling customers to build a business data fabric architecture that quickly delivers meaningful data with business context and logic intact.
SAP also entered into strategic partnerships with data and AI companies–Confluent Inc., Databricks Inc., Collibra NV, and DataRobot Inc.–to enrich SAP Datasphere and allow organisations to create a unified data architecture that securely combines SAP software data and non-SAP data.
