Teradata (TDC) has launched a software and services solution for SAP that bundles business insight with analytics, combining SAP data with operational data and big data. Designed by Teradata, the new solution provides actionable insights, and enables more complete, comprehensive, and accurate business decisions.
"It makes perfect sense to move SAP system data to Teradata and integrate it with big data and business data," said Neil Raden, chief executive officer and principal analyst, Hired Brains Research. "By doing so, SAP customers will enjoy a vastly more performant, simplified, and useful system. They will also be served by a very large professional services organization from Teradata that is focused on – big data analytics, data warehousing, and business intelligence."
Integrated data from multiple SAP systems and and non-SAP systems can then be exposed to over 1,000 in-database analytic functions, available from Teradata and its partners. The resulting analytics equips SAP application users to meet the unrelenting demand for intelligence. Out of the box it includes enterprise architecture, ELT scripts, and data models. Business users have a full, enterprise view of their business with integrated data.
"The integration of SAP-system’s data into the Teradata Database will enable our customers to leverage high-value, predictive analytics and see their entire organization in a new way and guide it forward," said Scott Gnau, president, Teradata Labs. "They will be able to move from operational reporting to creating a vision for the future. Teradata Analytics for SAP can be rapidly deployed and easily maintained, it also reduces IT complexity and cost."
