SAP has launched an intelligent operations bundle to help the enterprise infuse big data insights in real-time, while HP has unveiled a new ConvergedSystem for SAP HANA portfolio of integrated systems.
At the Gartner Business Process Management Summit in London this week SAP launched an intelligent business operations bundle to help organizations infuse big data insights in real time into their processes to work smarter and improve responsiveness to threats and opportunities. With enterprises struggling to have one single view of processes and making use of big data in a way that empowers users, the new operations bundle from SAP allows organizations to embed Big Data insights into their processes in real time.
"The full value of Big Data only comes when you embed its insights in your business processes," said Sanjay Chikarmane, senior vice president and general manager, Global Technology Solutions, SAP. "With the new intelligent business operations offering, we aim to help organizations to make use of Big Data in real time to run their processes more efficiently and intelligently. This solution lets customers take advantage of the convergence of process technology and operational intelligence which is considered to be the next generation of business process management."
The new offering is based on the SAP HANA platform and features SAP Operational Process Intelligence software, SAP NetWeaver Process Orchestration software, SAP Event hStream Processor, and SAP PowerDesigner software. It allows for complete upstream and downstream visibility among process documentation, implementation and analysis by sharing common standards-based process, data and interface models.
