SAP and Intel: A Strong Partnership Built on Successful Co-Innovation
For more than a decade, SAP and Intel are working together to deliver industry-leading performance of SAP solutions on Intel® architecture, and a large proportion of new SAP implementations are being deployed on Intel® platforms.
The latest success from that tradition of co-innovation is available to customers of all sizes in SAP In-Memory Appliance Software (SAP HANA®), which is delivered on the Intel® Xeon® processor. Additionally, the two companies plan to build and bring to market a breakthrough “big data” solution for enterprise customers centered on the SAP HANA platform and Intel Distribution for Apache™ Hadoop® software; this combination will integrate innovations and software technologies from SAP, Intel and the huge open source community to store and analyze large volumes of structured and unstructured data from across the enterprise in real-time.
As you can see, the relationship between SAP and Intel has grown even stronger over the years, now including a broad set of collaborations and initiative types like:
• Joint roadmap enablement:
Early in the design process, Intel and SAP decision makers identify complementary features and capabilities in their upcoming products, and those insights help directing the development cycle to reach maximum value creation.
• Collaborative product optimization:
Intel engineers located on-site at SAP work with their SAP peers to provide tuning expertise that enables SAP HANA and other software solutions to take advantage of the latest hardware features.
• Combined research efforts:
Together, researchers from SAP and Intel continuously explore and drive the future of business computing. As a result of these efforts, solutions for customer achieve performance, scalability, reliability, and energy efficiency levels that directly translate into favorable ROI and TCO, unlocking increased business value.
