What is SAP Data Intelligence? – Definition and Benefits

In order to share a little bit of knowledge that I acquired studying SAP Data Intelligence, I decided to create this post and I hope to help and also be helped with good comments to include more information.

Getting started with SAP Data Intelligence…..

SAP Data Intelligence improves the efficiency of Corporate Data Management, and is presented by the vendor as a single solution to innovate with data. It provides data-driven innovation in the cloud, on premise.

Aimed at transforming the scatter of distributed data into vital data insights to deliver innovation at scale. It is a data management solution that connects, discovers, enriches, and orchestrates disjointed data assets into actionable business insights at the enterprise scale. It enables the creation of data warehouses from heterogeneous enterprise data, the management of IoT data flows, and facilitates scalable machine learning.

SAP Data Intelligence enables you to leverage enterprise applications to become an intelligent enterprise and provides a unified way to manage, integrate, and process all your company’s data.

SAP Data Intelligence Cloud is the cloud equivalent of the on-premises SAP data intelligence. This cloud-based service syncs with the roles and responsibilities of data engineers, data stewards, data scientists, and data architects. Essentially, any user can maximize the data spread across the distributed hybrid landscapes, help to create data warehouses from mixed data, and simplify the management of data streams.

  • SAP Data Intelligence is available as a BYOL (bring your own license) model where it can be deployed on-premise in your own data center, on any hyperscale public (AWS, Google, Microsoft) or private cloud.

Connectivity of SAP Data Intelligence with On-premise can be done:

  • Cloud Connector
  • Site to Site VPN
