SAP SE announced enhancements to its business technology platform to enable intelligent enterprises to thrive in an Experience Economy. These updates help customers quickly turn data into business value.

By bringing together SAP technology into one “stack” with a single reference architecture, the business technology platform from SAP delivers required services for modern enterprises.  It encompasses database and data management, application development and integration, analytics, intelligent technologies and services to help organizations extend their SAP applications, integrate their landscape and build new applications to improve business processes.  With the business technology platform customers can benefit from easy access to SAP data and out-of-the-box business content that helps turn data into business value.  Additionally, partnerships with hyperscale vendors and seamless interoperability with their technologies deliver a high level of scalability and flexibility.

SAP HANA Cloud Services to Infuse Intelligence into Data

Comprising SAP Data Warehouse Cloud solution, SAP HANA Cloud and SAP Analytics Cloud, SAP HANA Cloud Services combines all data and analytics capabilities in these solutions as one set of interconnected services to store, process, govern and consume large volumes of data.

SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, a business-ready data warehouse in the cloud, offers users a self-service solution to easily and quickly tie all their business data together and translate it into value for their specific line of business.  With a simple and flexible pricing model, customers can avoid the high up-front investment costs of a traditional data warehouse and easily and cost-effectively scale their data warehouse as data demands continue to grow.  SAP Data Warehouse Cloud can be deployed either stand-alone or as an extension to customers’ existing on-premise SAP BW/4HANA solution or SAP HANA software. More than 2,000 customers are registered for the beta program for SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, and general availability is planned for Q4/2019.

Latest Major Release of Leading On-Premise Business Intelligence Suite

SAP recognizes that every customer’s journey to the cloud is unique and many organizations are operating in a mixed landscape with on-premise, cloud and hybrid deployments.  The 4.3 release of the SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence suite aims to support customers with on-premise enhancements while providing tighter integration with SAP Analytics Cloud.  Benefits of the new version include an improved user experience, enhanced ease of deployment and support for the latest industry standards.  A beta program is planned for Q4/2019.
