SAP with a view of the lake: Data integration of SAP and Data Lake at badenova

IT provider badenIT creates a data lake for energy supplier badenova in addition to the SAP landscape. The decisive factor is the data transfer between different systems, which is achieved with the support of Datavard and  Datavard Outboard.

Data science is sexy – not only at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA, but also, in Tullastraße in Freiburg. This is the location of badenIT, an IT service provider and Dr. Alexander Schätzle’s employer. His task: to set up the Big Data and Data Services department for the service provider. “In essence, it is about modernizing our data platform and infrastructure so that it is optimally suited for customers’ analytics projects,” says Schätzle.

“If you look at our requirements and framework conditions, you quickly end up with Datavard.” According to Schätzle, the fact that the software company had already supported badenova in an SAP BW migration rounded out the decision. “It was important to the department that Datavard had proven expertise in the subject matter.”

The interface enables us to reduce storage space on the one hand and create added value from all available internal and external data on the other.
