SAP Introduces New Features in Enterprise Information Management Portfolio

SAP is introducing new innovations in its enterprise information management (EIM) portfolio to help customers better manage and use their data for digital transformation, cloud, Big Data, the Internet of Things (IoT), and data protection and privacy.

These innovations help simplify data management and include broader support for diverse data landscapes and tighter integration across SAP solutions.

New features include functionalities such as data quality, master data management, content management, and information lifecycle management capabilities with enhanced support specifically for SAP S/4HANA.  

SAP Master Data Governance on SAP S/4HANA offers consolidation, mass processing, central governance and master data quality analytics to help companies clean and maintain data in SAP S/4HANA.

“Information is the foundation of a digital business,” said Greg McStravick, ‎SAP ‎president, database and data management. “Whether companies are looking at digital transformation from a business network, IoT, or big data and analytics perspective, information governance is crucial to their success. Our portfolio updates help our customers run a live business by making data trusted, complete, secure and relevant for their business processes and analytics.”

Updates also include new and expanded support for Amazon Redshift and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Microsoft Azure Cloud and SQL Data Warehouse, and Google Cloud Platform.

The EIM portfolio from SAP offers new and expanded support for Impala, Cassandra, OData, Hive and IoT device connectivity; Parquet, Avro and ORC file types; and Kerberos and Knox Gateway security.

SAP has enhanced integration between its EIM solutions and the SAP BW/4HANA and SAP Vora solutions, SAP Cloud Platform Big Data Services, the SAP Leonardo digital innovation system and SAP Asset Intelligence Network.

The new European data protection law, known as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will be effective May 25, 2018, has raised awareness of data protection and privacy.

New features within SAP’s EIM portfolio expand discovery, cleansing, masking and encryption of personal data to more sources.
