SAP has announced its latest data offering, the SAP BW/4HANA, a next-generation data warehouse application designed for running a real-time digital enterprise in traditional on-premise deployment, Amazon Web Services (AWS) or SAP HANA.
The new platform will give customers a simpler access to real-time analytics through a new foundation for logical data warehousing that provides the interactivity with historical and live data residing in a diverse IT landscape, whether within or outside the enterprise. It will have an open data warehousing environment for rapid application development, a modern user interface, and advanced multi-temperature data handling.
“As an early adopter of SAP BW/4HANA running on AWS, we reduced our end-to-end production time by 50 percent, allowing us to deliver a powerful new analytics platform with minimal up-front investment in just three months,” said Diego Lombardini, head of Finance Systems, Fairfax Media Pty. “To support our constantly changing business, we now have an extremely flexible, highly scalable cloud environment that is capable of future-proofing our business.”
The new offering will also connect to the SAP BusinessObjects Cloud solution for visualization, storytelling and data exploration, and built-in connectivity to SAP Digital Boardroom. These highly flexible deployment options will add elasticity, versatility and superior price-performance options for customers.
“With SAP BW/4HANA and AWS, customers get the ability to run SAP's modernized data warehouse for the real-time analytics that power their business, with the elasticity, flexibility and reliability of the AWS Cloud,” said Peter DeSantis, VP, Compute Services, AWS. “Offering more memory than any other SAP-certified cloud instance available today, AWS's X1 instances are purpose built for customers who want to quickly try, deploy, run and optimize their critical workloads in SAP HANA at scale, without investing in on-premise infrastructure.”
Sounds like there are no saps in this deal.
