SAP Updates the Enterprise Information Management Portfolio to Deliver Information Excellence

WALLDORFSAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced innovations in the enterprise information management (EIM) portfolio to help customers better manage and use their data for digital transformation, cloud, Big Data, the Internet of Things (IoT), and data protection and privacy.

These innovations help simplify data management and include broader support for diverse data landscapes and tighter integration across SAP solutions. New features include functionalities such as data quality, master data management, content management and information lifecycle management capabilities with enhanced support specifically for SAP S/4HANA. SAP Master Data Governance on SAP S/4HANA offers consolidation, mass processing, central governance and master data quality analytics to help companies clean and maintain data in SAP S/4HANA.

“Information is the foundation of a digital business,” said Greg McStravick, ‎SAP ‎president, Database & Data Management. “Whether companies are looking at digital transformation from a business network, IoT or Big Data and analytics perspective, information governance is crucial to their success. Our portfolio updates help our customers run a live business by making data trusted, complete, secure and relevant for their business processes and analytics.”

Improved Cloud, IoT and Big Data Support

Updates also include new and expanded support for Amazon Redshift and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Microsoft Azure Cloud and SQL Data Warehouse, and Google Cloud Platform. EIM capabilities embedded in SAP Cloud Platform offer data and process integration, remote data synchronization, data quality management microservices and self-service data preparation. In addition, orchestration and governance of EIM capabilities can be managed holistically across all supported cloud and on-premise sources using the SAP Data Hub solution.

The EIM portfolio from SAP offers new and expanded support for Impala, Cassandra, OData, Hive and IoT device connectivity; Parquet, Avro and ORC file types; and Kerberos and Knox Gateway security, further strengthening our commitment to open source and heterogeneous environments. SAP has enhanced integration between its EIM solutions and the SAP BW/4HANA and SAP Vora™ solutions, SAP Cloud Platform Big Data Services, the SAP Leonardo digital innovation system and SAP Asset Intelligence Network. Whether it’s sensor data from devices, social media feeds, market data or click streams from a web site, expanded machine learning in SAP HANA streaming analytics software improves the ability to process, analyze and act on data in motion.

Clean Data for GDPR Requirements

The new European data protection law, the so-called General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will be effective May 25, 2018, has raised awareness of data protection and privacy. New features within SAP’s EIM portfolio expand discovery, cleansing, masking and encryption of personal data to more sources. Archiving, restriction and deletion of personal data can be managed holistically across data in applications and associated content, such as purchase orders, invoices and HR documents. In addition, SAP has released a trial service of new data anonymization capabilities that enable companies to address privacy requirements while still creating meaningful data sets for analysis and processing.
