This blog post provides an overview of key innovations in the 2201 Release of SAP Asset Intelligence Network. On January 23, 2022, we released exciting new SAP Asset Intelligence Network innovations for our customers.
Let me share some of the key highlights from the SAP Asset Intelligence Network 2201 Release:-
Latest Innovations – Data Federation
Data Federation for Business Partners, Models, Templates and Documents
- Organizations can provide consent for other data centers. Once consent is provided, the org data gets replicated to the cross data center. Further, the orgs can connect with each other and collaborate further.
- Organizations can add their respective connected cross data center organizations to their network authorization groups and share objects with these groups.
- On sharing, these objects (models, templates, attributes, attribute groups, code lists, documents) get replicated to the cross data centers based on the members of the group.
- Further changes to the objects in source DC also get replicated to the cross DCs.
Documents IP Clearance
- Customer can optionally maintain blocked data center countries or blocked data centers while uploading the documents.
- Based on this configured blocked countries / data centers, the documents are not replicated though the document owner has given consent to a particular data center.
- For objects which are already replicated to a particular cross DC, these objects cannot have this particular cross DC and its country as its blocked DC and country.
