SAP Datasphere solution is the next-generation data management portfolio, which gives customers easy access to business-ready data across the data landscape.
Accessing and using data located in disparate systems and locations, across cloud providers, data vendors, and on-premise systems have been a complex challenge. Customers have had to extract data from original sources and export it to a central location, losing critical business context along the way and recapturing it only through ongoing, dedicated IT projects and manual effort.
SAP Datasphere hopes to eliminate this hidden data tax, enabling customers to build a business data fabric architecture that quickly delivers meaningful data with business context and logic intact.
“We want to help our customers take the next step to easily and confidently integrate SAP data with non-SAP data from third-party applications and platforms, unlocking entirely new insights and knowledge to bring digital transformation to another level,” said Juergen Mueller, CTO at SAP SE.
SAP Business Technology Platform
SAP Datasphere enables data professionals to deliver scalable access to mission-critical business data. With a unified experience for data integration, data cataloging, semantic modeling, data warehousing, data federation, and data virtualization, SAP Datasphere enables data professionals to help distribute mission-critical business data, with business context and logic preserved, across their organization’s data landscape.
SAP Datasphere is built on the SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP), which includes strong enterprise security capabilities, such as database security, encryption, and governance. No additional steps or migrations are required for existing customers of SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, who will benefit from the new SAP Datasphere functionality in their product environment.
New functionality includes data cataloging that automatically discovers, manages, and governs data; simplified data replication to deliver data and its constant updates in real-time; and enhanced data modeling that preserves the rich business context of data in SAP applications. Additional application integration capabilities that link data and metadata from cloud solutions from SAP to SAP Datasphere are planned.
