Denodo, a provider of data virtualization software, is now certified to integrate with the SAP NetWeaver technology platform, allowing organizations to unite data from SAP BW with data from other sources such as enterprise applications, Apache Hadoop, NoSQL databases, Salesforce.com applications and more.
“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.
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 logical data warehouse architecture.
By 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 to accelerate access to a unified view of data for their enterprise business intelligence applications.
“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,” Shankar said.
