Try Out SAP Cloud Platform Data Enrichment for Free

This blog discusses how you can get started with SAP Cloud Platform Data Enrichment using an SAP Cloud Platform trial account.

Overview of SAP Cloud Platform Data Enrichment

Data Enrichment industrializes the use of third-party data for enterprise applications and makes it economical for you to find, procure, and consume relevant datasets in a timely fashion. Data enrichment allows the following:

Single Record Enrichment

  • On-demand data from data providers that is pre-cabled with SAP applications, eliminating data setup and integration costs
  • Matching of external data in context with the master data that’s already available with you
  • Central linking of external data providers to SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud or on-premise applications (SAP or non-SAP)

Mass Enrichment

  • Enrich multiple master data records in bulk
  • Assign DUNS ID to enriched business partners records
  • Load clean business partner data upfront to reduce data quality expenses

Updates from Data Providers

  • Keep the master data up-to-date by managing changes from third-party data providers
