SAP and HP announced an agreement through which the companies will integrate the SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (SAP NetWeaver BW) component and the HP Neoview enterprise data warehouse platform.
The extended relationship with the addition of HP Neoview complements the complete lineup of HP infrastructures and global consulting services for use with business intelligence (BI) solutions from SAP.
Inadequate information hinders companies from making informed business decisions while requiring them to spend a significant amount of time, money and IT resources accessing data from multiple sources to carry out analysis and reporting using a myriad of business intelligence products. The integration of SAP NetWeaver BW and HP Neoview is designed to address the challenges associated with the continuous distribution and growth of data volumes while obtaining increased returns on existing BI investments.
This integration will provide customers with the flexibility to deploy SAP NetWeaver BW or BI-driven analytic applications from SAP on the HP Neoview enterprise data warehouse platform. HP Neoview provides a highly scalable database platform to store, manage and access huge volumes of data through its massively parallel processing and shared-nothing architecture.
The HP Neoview platform’s capability is complemented by the robust SAP NetWeaver BW and the high-performance SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse Accelerator (SAP NetWeaver BW Accelerator) software for the data warehouse layer, as well as by software from the SAP® BusinessObjects portfolio, which act as the BI front-end tools to provide high-speed analysis of data.
The integrated products will offer specific optimizations in the areas of data availability windows for acquiring and provisioning very high-volume operational data. Instead of being faced with migrating or re-implementing solutions, customers can protect and take advantage of their existing data warehousing investments by simply augmenting an existing deployment of SAP NetWeaver BW with a database running on the HP Neoview platform.
HP Business Intelligence solutions combined with HP’s overall product portfolio creates a complete offering for SAP BI solutions. HP’s extensive portfolio of assets leading with a world-class consulting organization, combined with the BI portfolio from SAP will allow HP to provide joint customers with a highly differentiated offering for end-to-end BI solutions. For the last 20 years, nearly 50 percent of implementations of SAP solutions have run on HP platforms. The addition of HP Neoview complements the complete lineup of HP infrastructures for use with SAP business intelligence solutions. The increased integration of HP Neoview and SAP solutions delivers a compelling solution for non-SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) accounts as well.
HP resells SAP BusinessObjects software to offer customers a turnkey solution that includes data warehouse infrastructure, business intelligence and data integration tools.
