Esri Now Supports the SAP Cloud Platform

Esri, a provider of location intelligence, now supports the SAP Cloud Platform, SAP HANA service, making it the first database as a service that is supported by Esri ArcGIS technology.

Organizations can now run SAP HANA as the underlying multimodel database service for the ArcGIS system of record and take advantage of increased performance, lower total cost of ownership, and easier integration of enterprise data with spatial data either on premise, in the cloud, or in a hybrid deployment.

“Our partnership with Esri brings over 20 years of co-innovation to our joint customer base,” said Gerrit Kazmaier, SAP senior vice president of SAP HANA and analytics. “Through our latest co-innovation efforts, the SAP HANA service is the first and only database as a service serving as the foundation of the enterprise geodatabase with ArcGIS.”

The SAP HANA service, a main component of SAP HANA Cloud Services, is now a supported enterprise geodatabase with Esri’s ArcGIS Enterprise and ArcGIS Pro, allowing businesses to benefit from full integration of enterprise and spatial data for greater insights, improved business decisions and quicker innovation.

By providing fully integrated spatial analytics and advanced visualizations in one multimodel database management system, the joint solution from SAP and Esri consolidates IT landscapes for lower administration costs and total cost of ownership.
