Through co-innovation between SAP and Esri, an end-to-end support for spatial data is planned across SAP HANA®, the SAP® BusinessObjects™ Business Intelligence (BI) platform and SAP® Mobile Platform, aiming to offer organizations the ability to:

  • Enrich SAP® Business Suite applications with geographic content
  • Rapidly process spatial, location and enterprise data using SAP HANA in real time
  • Visualize geographic information in maps, graphs and charts using tools from the SAP BusinessObjects portfolio
  • Deliver applications to field workers that effectively process geospatial and business data using SAP Mobile Platform

"SAP plans to provide real-time high-performance processing of spatial data with SAP HANA, a single platform for transactions, analytics and big data," said Steve Lucas, executive vice president and general manager, Analytics, Database and Platform, SAP. "By integrating with the Esri ArcGIS platform across SAP HANA, SAP BusinessObjects BI platform and SAP Mobile Platform, and by enriching SAP Business Suite applications with spatial content, we want to enable customers to combine the added dimension of location information with enterprise data, in real time. This will give businesses a new level of immediacy in their decision-making capabilities and will increase their competitive advantage."

Native High-Performance Processing of Spatial Data Using SAP HANASAP plans to expand the SAP HANA platform with the introduction of spatial data processing capabilities that combine location data with enterprise data to enrich and enhance real-time business applications. Furthermore, Esri and SAP intend to optimize connectivity between Esri ArcGIS and SAP HANA via Query Layers, which will allow Esri ArcGIS users to push spatial processing into SAP HANA, unleashing high-performing and real-time capabilities.

SAP plans to enable customers and independent software vendors (ISVs) to consume, process and analyze spatial, transactional and text data within one unified platform for predictive, location-based solutions based on big data. In addition, the company intends to offer SAP HANA customers a native application development platform, including geo-content and location services, to quickly develop and deploy spatially-based solutions. SAP HANA is an open platform allowing BI tools, as well as customer, partner and SAP applications, to leverage the breadth and depth of real-time, spatial processing capabilities.
