As the fourth part of our deep-dive series – “Recommendations On the BTP Pillars,” we are delving into SAP’s Business Technology Platform’s (BTP) fourth pillar – Data and Analytics. This pillar is foundational to giving data purpose and building agility to meet change.
In the age of digital transformation, the ability to understand and leverage data has become critical for business success. SAP’s suite, including SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC), SAP Datasphere, SAP Data Intelligence Cloud, SAP Master Data Governance, and SAP HANA Cloud, provide comprehensive data management solutions.
SAC combines business intelligence, augmented analytics, and enterprise planning to provide insights for better decision-making. SAP Datasphere facilitates data orchestration across the enterprise landscape, while SAP Data Intelligence Cloud simplifies data conversion and intelligence. SAP Master Data Governance ensures data consistency across various transactional and analytical systems, and SAP HANA Cloud acts as a high-performance in-memory database to handle both transactions and analytics.
In the face of evolving BI solutions and data services, our firm, Rizing, recommends real-time data federation and context creation for data lakes as these tools promote agility and real-time insights. The shift from traditional systems like BW to these innovative solutions forms the core of SAP’s Data and Analytics pillar.
