Background: SAP rolled out its Data Warehouse Cloud, built atop the SAP HANA platform, last year. Partners are playing a key role in developing solutions for targeted verticals that can tie into the data management and analytics offering. SAP also develops its own pre-built solutions for the cloud-based data platform, with the most recent offerings aimed at the retail market.
The Buzz: “SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, a key component of our just released Business Technology Platform, is an out-of-the-box, enterprise-ready data warehouse that brings people and information together,” said Gerrit Kazmaier, president of SAP HANA and Analytics. “To ensure customers quickly gain insights from SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, we offer pre-built business content packages comprised of end-to-end business scenarios that answer key business and technical questions. Our partner ecosystem plays a critical role in creating these business content packages to meet growing customer demand in all industries and for all lines of business.”
