SAP has introduced new software packages for enterprise information management (EIM) that claims to offer organisations reliable information for better analytics and efficient business processes.
The new EIM packages are designed to provide support for the important information management needs of the business, the company said.
SAP’s new EIM packages include: SAP Data Services, accurate processes option; SAP Data Services, accurate analytics option; SAP Data Services, enterprise edition and SAP Enterprise Master Data Management (SAP Enterprise MDM)
The accurate processes option optimises the performance of business processes by providing accurate information for SAP Business Suite software customers with an application to profile, improve, integrate and monitor the quality of operational data assets.
SAP Data Services, accurate analytics option ensures analytics and decisions are based on accurate information residing in any data warehouse or data mart, including the SAP HANA platform, the SAP Sybase IQ server and the SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse application.
The enterprise edition provides an enterprise-wide application for integrating and improving all data sources and applications within an organisation.
SAP Enterprise Master Data Management (SAP Enterprise MDM) addresses both centralised and decentralised data ownership approaches for all key data domains.
It also helps ensure master data dependability from the point of creation, as well as from consolidation and enrichment across diverse heterogeneous sources.
The new EIM software packages are based on updates to EIM applications released earlier this year, including SAP Information Steward software, the SAP Master Data Governance application and SAP Data Services software.
SAP Information Steward provides metrics and dashboards to both end users and IT professionals to enable anyone in an organisation to continuously monitor and improve the composition and trustworthiness of data sources available to them.
The Master Data Governance enables businesses to manage the creation and maintenance of master data while allowing the data to be safely used and reused throughout the organisation.
SAP Data Services integrate, improve and manage all relevant information regardless of data type or location. The improved data movement and quality management capabilities extend not only to any transactional system but also to analytical and big data sources.
