Posted on 16 Nov 2009 by The Manufacturer

SAP AG and HP announced an agreement through which the companies will integrate the SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (SAP NetWeaver BW) component and the HP Neoview enterprise data warehouse platform.

The integration of SAP NetWeaver BW and HP Neoview is designed to address the challenges associated with the continuous distribution and growth of data volumes while obtaining increased returns on existing BI investments.

Accordingly, the HP Neoview platform’s capability is complemented by SAP NetWeaver BW and highperformance SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse Accelerator (SAP NetWeaver BW Accelerator) software for the data warehouse layer, as well as by software from the SAP BusinessObjects portfolio, which act as the BI front-end tools to provide high-speed analysis of data.

“With broader visibility across their business networks, companies can gain the insight needed to act decisively in today’s global economy,” said John Schwarz, member of the Executive Board, SAP AG. “Working together, SAP and HP are enabling customers to achieve visibility by delivering integrated solutions that offer increased scalability and greater flexibility for any data environment.”
