Teradata Available on January 27, the Teradata Analytics for SAP software and services solution offers SAP users best-in-class analytics capabilities, and unprecedented business insight.

The Teradata Analytics for SAP solution provides unique capabilities all wrapped in a low cost and high performance bundle, says the company in a news release.

Designed by Teradata, a provider of analytic data platforms, applications and services, this new solution creates actionable insights by delivering analytics that combine SAP data with operational data and big data. Teradata Analytics for SAP enables more complete, comprehensive and accurate business decisions.

“It makes perfect sense to move SAP system data to Teradata and integrate it with big data and business data,” said Neil Raden, CEO and principal analyst, Hired Brains Research. “By doing so, SAP customers will enjoy a vastly more performant, simplified, and useful system. They will also be served by a very large professional services organization from Teradata that is focused on — big data analytics, data warehousing, and business intelligence.”

Teradata allows SAP application users to easily combine data from multiple SAP systems and non-SAP systems within the Teradata Database. The integrated data can then be exposed to over 1,000 in-database analytic functions, available from Teradata and its partners. The resulting analytics equips SAP application users to meet the unrelenting demand for intelligence.

“The integration of SAP-system’s data into the Teradata Database will enable our customers to leverage high-value, predictive analytics and see their entire organization in a new way and guide it forward. They will be able to move from operational reporting to creating a vision for the future,” said Scott Gnau, president, Teradata Labs. “Teradata Analytics for SAP can be rapidly deployed and easily maintained, it also reduces IT complexity and cost.”

Teradata Analytics for SAP offers 150 dashboards and standardized business reports in 17 key categories from financial accounting to human resources. In addition, it is an open solution that empowers users to build their own custom reports, which run directly against the integrated data within the data warehouse, without dependency on IT.
