DataVard Announces Its Participation at SAP® TechEd® to Showcase End-to-End Solutions for Migration and Performance Management Strategies to Prepare Customers for SAP HANA®

WASHINGTON, D.C. – October 13th, 2015 – Datavard, a data management specialist and SAP partner, today announced that it will be showcasing its end-to-end solutions for customers considering or planning to move to the SAP HANA® platform at the SAP® TechEd® conference in booth 111.

SAP TechEd, being held Oct. 19–23 in Las Vegas, focuses on technology with an emphasis on collaboration and hands-on workshops, going beyond technical education.

On Wednesday, Oct. 21, 9:15–10:15 a.m., Datavard CEO Gregor Stoeckler will present “Strategies to Shrink Your Database and Get Ready for SAP HANA.” At the accompanying exhibition in booth 111, and during two networking sessions, Datavard will be presenting solutions for test automation, nearline storage and automated housekeeping.

“Our goal is to make SAP clients fit for the future while simultaneously preserving their valuable resources. And that is what we want to show in our presentation and in the hands-on sessions at this year’s SAP TechEd conference,” said Stoeckler. “Our strength is to react quickly to the changing needs of our clients. We are among the few data management specialists providing a link to Apache Hadoop since 2010.” This pursuit was recognized by Gartner, as Datavard was positioned on Gartner’s June 15, 2015 “Magic Quadrant for Structured Data and Archiving and Application Retirement.” Gartner analysts positioned Datavard the furthest for completeness of vision in the Niche Players Quadrant.

Datavard was positioned in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant as Visionary for its Data Management Suite OutBoard™. This application separates analytical and transactional data, as well as documents, according to operational relevance, and stores it automatically in up to 12 various database technologies with up to 95% compression. This enables companies to reduce database volume by 40% to 50%, boost the performance of their SAP systems and simultaneously save operating costs. The solution can be linked among others, particularly to every SAP-certified database management system, SAP IQ software or Apache Hadoop, or data- or cloud-based storage systems. In addition the housekeeping tool Datavard OutBoard™ ERNA automatically eliminates unnecessary and temporary data and thus contributes to the continuous optimization of size and performance of SAP systems.

Another innovative solution presented at SAP TechEd is Datavard’s test automation solution, KATE. As a leading solution for fully automated testing in business warehouse (BW) applications, this test automation suite boasts comprehensive support for SAP software testing: analysis of user data, automation of test error and test data results as well as holistic test management. SAP customers can benefit from efficient execution and higher testing quality – saving effort and cost.

Specifically designed for SAP systems, this software contains generic test scenarios and predefined steps for dialogue testing. Besides function, integration and regression testing, Datavard KATE also automates end-to-end tests, addressing complex and non-homogenous SAP landscapes as well.
