Big Data scenarios with SAP

Big Data scenarios are getting more and more interesting for many companies. Scenarios and use cases include Business Intelligence, AI/ML, Predictive Analytics, Churn Reduction, Predictive Maintenance, Fraud Detection, Clickstream Integration, etc. However, data is still generated and stored in silos – especially when it comes to SAP. Breaking down these silos to implement data integration is becoming a top priority. Datavard GlueTM helps to achieve true integration between SAP and Big Data platforms both in the cloud and on-premise.

Datavard Glue is your swiss knife to deploy SAP Data on your platform of choice, enabling integrated Analytics & Data Science.

How Does Datavard Glue Work?

  • Datavard Glue is an add-on solution to your existing SAP Netweaver applications.  Glue uses your existing hardware, existing SAP security practices, and folds into your existing sustainment practices seamlessly.
  • Your existing SAP teams are familiar with the SAP Netweaver look and feel, resulting in faster familiarity and time to value!
  • Datavard Glue is capable of pushing data as well as responding to requests from target systems.
  • Capable of leveraging Change Data Capture (CDC) and near real-time data streaming.
  • Full and delta data load capabilities.
  • Source data from tables, views, ODP, extractors, DSO / ADSO objects, InfoProviders, CDS Views, etc.
  • Datavard Glue is an SAP Certified Solution. (Certified for SAP S/4HANA, Certified for SAP Netweaver)

With Datavard Glue you have a powerful tool at your disposal to help make your processes leaner, smarter, and more efficient. The possibilities range from pure data analysis for a better understanding of your processes to the automation of complete process chains using learning algorithms (machine learning).

To realize the full potential of big data for your company, you need to overcome your existing data silos and integrate business-critical IT systems with your big data platform via suitable interfaces.

Your SAP systems are of particular importance here. They map your financial and logistic processes and thus contain an enormous “data treasure,” which is incredibly valuable for big data analyses. In addition, you can transfer data from data lakes to SAP for further processing and automate processes that were previously performed manually.

Once you have integrated your big data and SAP landscape, many interesting applications can be developed.

Example use cases:

  • Implementation of a uniform view of your customers throughout the entire company (“Customer 360”)
  • Predictive maintenance based on SAP CO (Controlling), AA (Asset Accounting) and PM (Plant Maintenance)
  • Data warehouse mondernization
  • Application integration
  • SAP Business Object Framework integration
  • Fraud detection/fraud management
  • Clickstream integration with SAP CRM
  • Risk modeling
  • Implementation of a recommendation engine for personalized product recommendations integrated with the SAP MM module
  • Point of sale transaction analysis
  • Trade monitoring
  • Blockchain integration in SAP processes

With our technology, we enable you to implement these and other scenarios into your SAP and big data landscape efficiently and cost-effectively.
