In a recent blog, Bernd Leukert, member of the executive board, Products and Innovation at SAP, explored why companies today need a data management suite. I highly recommend you take a look at Bernd’s piece, because it sets the stage nicely for the latest update we’d like to unveil: the SAP HANA Data Management Suite.
Organizations today struggle with two major issues: Business needs more connected, intelligent data, and IT needs more cloud and architecture flexibility. The SAP HANA Data Management Suite seeks to solve both those challenges by creating a unified stream of clean data into analysis or transaction systems to process and make decisions – a decision machine, in a sense – while offering cloud freedom for data systems, applications, and system development.
To meet the first goal of more connected, intelligent data, SAP HANA Data Management Suite incorporates the following steps:
SAP can natively anonymize live data which delivers an inherently more secure, lower risk solution, requiring no add-on components.
To meet the second goal of cloud and architecture flexibility, SAP provides freedom of movement of data, instances, and queries spanning local, public, and multiple private clouds. This is designed to allow for deployment flexibility and avoid vendor lock in, which can be binding and costly, and allows for freedom of movement and synchronization of data, instances and queries spanning local, private and multi-public cloud, and includes software-defined cloud automation capabilities to help operate on-premise data center as local cloud.
SAP has natively integrated multiple data types with common tooling and SQL resulting in a simpler landscape that lowers costs, improves developer productivity and business agility unlike other vendors that require separate, complex landscapes.
Other benefits of the SAP HANA Data Management Suite include:
With all this and more, SAP HANA Data Management Suite enables secure, governed enterprise class applications and analytics by providing an open, hybrid and multi-cloud enabled solution suite that orchestrates all the data you need into a trusted, unified landscape.
As you can tell, we’re tremendously excited about the SAP HANA Data Management Suite and what it can do for our customers. I feel I’ve only scratched the surface here with our capabilities and offerings that make up the suite, so if you’d like to learn more, click here and as always, I welcome your comments or questions below.
