PALO ALTO, CA, December 15, 2015 - Denodo, a leader in data virtualization software, today announced that the Denodo Platform version 5.5 has achieved SAP-certified integration with the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform. The SAP® Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that the Denodo Platform 5.5 integrates with the SAP Business Warehouse (SAP BW) 7.4 application and can access metadata and master data of objects, as well as transactional data, in SAP BW. The Denodo Platform provides a data virtualization and abstraction layer over SAP BW and other data sources following a logical data warehouse architecture. Now, organizations can easily integrate data from SAP BW with data from other sources such as enterprise applications, Apache Hadoop, NoSQL databases, Salesforce.com applications and more, using a virtual data abstraction layer to avoid physically moving the data.
The certification confirms the successful integration between the award-winning Denodo Platform and the world-class SAP NetWeaver technology platform. Leveraging the Denodo Platform for data virtualization, organizations can run complex distributed queries across several repositories including SAP BW without moving large amounts of data through their network, thereby accelerating access to a unified view of data for their enterprise business intelligence applications.
The Denodo Platform for data virtualization provides a logical data abstraction layer for disparate heterogeneous repositories, generating integrated business data in real time or nearly in real time as needed by consuming applications, business processes, analytics, or business users. Denodo supports the performance needs of industry-leading organizations that strive to be more agile in response to business users’ demands for actionable information. With the Denodo Platform, the data remains in the source data stores; therefore, traditional replication and accompanying staging, transformation, and batch copying tools and processes are greatly minimized. Rapid access to the data is provided through virtual views created within the Denodo Platform.
“Increasingly, business users are using data virtualization for agile BI projects to quickly and directly access data from heterogeneous operational and analytical systems,” said Ravi Shankar, chief marketing officer at Denodo. “Using the Denodo Platform, customers can significantly minimize replication by building ‘virtual data marts’ that are defined in the data virtualization layer, and avoid the creation of new physical repositories and even more copies of the data.”
Denodo is the leader in data virtualization providing agile, high performance data integration and data abstraction across the broadest range of enterprise, cloud, big data and unstructured data sources, and real-time data services at half the cost of traditional approaches. Denodo’s customers across every major industry have gained significant business agility and ROI by enabling faster and easier access to unified business information needs for agile BI, big data analytics, web and cloud integration, single-view applications, and enterprise data services.
