“SAP solutions for enterprise information management deliver information excellence by enabling customers to better understand, integrate, cleanse, manage, associate and archive data to optimize business processes and analytical insights,” said Ken Tsai, global vice president, Database & Data Management at SAP. “Updates to SAP Master Data Governance, SAP Agile Data Preparation and SAP Data Services help companies run a successful digital business with complete, trusted and relevant data.”

Data Governance and Enrichment

SAP Master Data Governance on SAP S/4HANA 1809 includes innovations across key disciplines such as data consolidation, central governance, mass processing, process analytics and master data quality management to help companies clean and manage master data enterprise-wide. With master data quality management, customers can manage rules creation, conduct data quality analysis and remediate issues found. New master data and data enrichment services as part of SAP Cloud Platform Integration Suite allow existing master data to consume additional data from data providers helping to eliminate risk of errors in manual data creation.

Connectivity and Interoperability

Key SAP solutions for EIM now have expanded connectivity to SAP Data Hub 2.3, a next-generation data orchestration solution, including dedicated connections from any SAP Data Services data source to provision data for distributed processing. Enhanced interoperability and connectivity between SAP Data Hub, SAP Agile Data Preparation and SAP Information Steward software give business users access to data repositories to discover, access and run data transformations.

Data Ease and Trust

SAP solutions for EIM including SAP HANA smart data integration, SAP HANA smart data quality and SAP Agile Data Preparation can now ingest the advanced data protection capabilities in SAP HANA with data anonymization and column encryption. SAP HANA smart data integration is now available as part of SAP Cloud Platform Integration Suite to provide a simpler way to extract, transform and load data from remote sources into instances of SAP HANA. An enhanced Hadoop integrator is provided, with support for Knox Gateway and Kerberos authentication protocol, that securely measures, monitors and cleanses data quality across SAP and non-SAP data sources. Additionally, SAP Agile Data Preparation has added sophisticated machine-learning capabilities to help users automate data management actions.
