Agreement offers SAP HANA users seamless integration with Apache Hadoop without need for Hadoop or big data expertise

Heidelberg, Germany, July 19, 2017 – Datavard, a leading provider of software and consulting services for SAP data management and analysis, has announced an exclusive partnership with Cloudera, a leader in enterprise analytic data management powered by Apache™ Hadoop®, to make it easier for SAP users to take advantage of Cloudera’s enterprise data hub. The agreement, an expansion of the two organizations’ existing cooperation, will provide companies using SAP HANA with big data consulting services and technology from a single source and allow them to collaboratively develop data models and execute them directly on the enterprise data hub.

Cloudera’s enterprise data hub is a central place for clients to store and analyze data, with the flexibility to run a variety of enterprise workloads including batch processing, interactive SQL, enterprise search and advanced analytics. Datavard and Cloudera have collaborated on numerous successful Hadoop integrations with SAP Hanna. Further, with its Datavard Glue middleware, Datavard enables a seamless integration of Hadoop and SAP HANA without the need for expertise in Hadoop programming.

“Integrating SAP HANA with Hadoop continues to be a major focus for our clients,” said Gregor Stöckler, Datavard CEO. “Cloudera is the recognized leader in Hadoop, with robust deployment options including on-premise, hybrid and in the cloud. We’ve had good success in previous joint projects with Cloudera from both technical and support perspectives. This exclusive partnership brings us a step forward and paves the way for expanded adoption of Hadoop among SAP users.”

Cloudera recently acknowledged Datavard at the Cloudera EMEA partner summit 2017 with the Innovator Award EMEA for its accomplishments within the Cloudera ecosystem.

“We are pleased to have a new level of successful partnership with such an innovative partner as Datavard,” said Alex Picker, head of Channel & Alliances EMEA at Cloudera. “With Datavard Glue and Datavard OutBoard, Datavard has developed groundbreaking solutions for linking SAP and Hadoop. The effectiveness and the TCO of their SAP systems can be improved, and they can show advanced analytical scenarios in SAP without knowledge of Hadoop.”
