WALLDORF SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced it has been named as a Strong Performer in “The Forrester New Wave™: Natural Language Generation For Analytics, Q4 2018.”* Among the criteria evaluated, SAP received a “differentiated” rating for analytics, number of industry verticals and business domains, and product road map.

“Analytics are the window into an intelligent enterprise, providing the foundation for fast and insightful action to deliver value across the business,” said Gerrit Kazmaier, senior vice president, SAP Analytics and Database and Data Management. “Recent innovations from SAP address the market’s need to make analytics easy with smart insights.
