SAP Named a Leader in Enterprise Data Virtualization by Independent Research Firm

WALLDORF SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced that it has been named a leader in “The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Data Virtualization, Q4 2017.” SAP ranked among the top three vendors across “Current Offering” and “Market Presence” scoring.

According to Forrester, “SAP’s strong distributed in-memory data platform, along with SAP’s broad data management capabilities, helps it store, process, and access data to support any type of DV use case. The combination of SAP HANA’s in-memory data platform for on-premises and cloud, SAP data management services, SAP Enterprise Information Management, and SAP [HANA] Smart Data Access delivers a DV platform that allows enterprises to integrate data from sources quickly and perform transactional, operational, and analytical workloads in the same platform.”

The report continues, “SAP is extending its framework to support more complex DV requirements. Enterprises use SAP’s DV solution to support operational intelligence, a 360-degree view of the customer, real-time analytics, risk analytics, and predictive analytics.”

Greg McStravick, president of Database and Data Management at SAP, said: “We believe that SAP’s position as a leader in Forrester’s evaluation of enterprise data virtualization vendors reflects on our strong commitment to delivering best-in-class enterprise information management capabilities to ensure trusted, relevant and complete data for all business solutions.
