SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced that it has been positioned by Forrester Research as a leader in “The Forrester Wave: Enterprise ETL, Q1 2012” report. Forrester notes SAP’s abilities to innovate and scale to support complex data integration environments as key factors in maintaining its leadership position.
According to the report, “The enterprise ETL market continues to grow at a healthy pace as more enterprises replace manual scripts with packaged ETL solutions.”1 As a result, “We [Forrester] believe that growing data volumes will further increase firms’ dependence on ETL to support the heavy lifting of data from transactional systems to operational data stores, data warehouses, BI platforms, MDM hubs, the cloud and Hadoop platforms.”1
Experiencing strong global adoption, the 4.0 release of enterprise information management (EIM) solutions from SAP enables organizations to process any data type from any data source, enabling the delivery of integrated, accurate and timely information across the enterprise.
Addressing extract, transform and load (ETL) and data integration, the 4.0 release of SAP BusinessObjects Data Services software highlights new big data capabilities, including support for unstructured text data types, enhanced data lineage and information governance when used with SAP BusinessObjects Information Steward software. Out-of-the-box integration with the 4.0 release of SAP BusinessObjects Data Services, the SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform, SAP Business Suite software and the newest innovations including the SAP HANA platform helps reduce the data preparation costs that exist in all IT projects.
