Walldorf, Germany – Sunnyvale, USA: SAP SE and Google Cloud announced an expansion of their partnership, introducing a comprehensive open data offering.
The offering enables customers to build an end-to-end data cloud that brings data from across the enterprise landscape using the SAP Datasphere solution together with Google’s data cloud so businesses can view their entire data estate in real time and maximise value from their Google Cloud and SAP software investments.
Data is the cornerstone of digital transformation and AI development. Data originating from SAP systems, in particular, are among organisations’ most valuable assets and can contain critical information on supply chains, financial forecasting, human resources records, omnichannel retail, and more.
SAP Datasphere combines this mission-critical data with data from across the enterprise landscape, regardless of its origin. Being able to easily combine SAP software data and non-SAP data on Google Cloud, from virtually any other data source, means organisations can dramatically accelerate their digital transformation with a fully-defined data foundation that retains complete business context.
“Bringing together SAP systems and data with Google’s data cloud introduces entirely new opportunities for enterprises to derive more value from their full data footprints,” said Christian Klein, CEO and member of the Executive Board of SAP SE.
“SAP and Google Cloud share a commitment to open data and our extended partnership will help break down barriers between data stored in disparate systems, databases, and environments. Our customers not only benefit from the business AI already built into our systems, but also from a unified data foundation,” added Klein.
“SAP and Google Cloud now offer an incredibly comprehensive and open data cloud, providing a foundation for the future of enterprise AI,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO of Google Cloud.
“Few resources are as important to digital transformation as data. By deeply integrating SAP data and systems with our data cloud, customers will be able to utilize our analytics capabilities, as well as advanced AI tools and large language models to find new insights from their data,” added Kurian.
SAP and Google Cloud’s new open data offering complements the RISE with SAP solution and will enable customers with various features such as access business-critical data in real-time, simplify data landscapes, create trusted insights with Google Cloud’s advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) models, perform advance analysis, utilise joint solutions for sustainability and use SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) on Google Cloud globally.
The companies also plan to partner on joint go-to-market initiatives for enterprises’ largest data projects, enabling customers to adopt data products from both SAP and Google Cloud.
