Customer Success, Data Management Analyst Reports and Industry Awards Validate SAP’s Market Leadership and Growth
SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today unveiled the 4.2 versions of SAP® Data Services and SAP® Information Steward, flexible, open and real-time data management software with over 30 years of product development. Worldwide enterprises have chosen SAP for the breadth of information management solutions that offer new and enhanced capabilities to help integrate, transform and improve the value of data. These solutions address the need for better information governance, meet big data requirements and create a simpler user experience that helps organizations run better.
Data stewards now have the ability to assess the financial consequence of poor data across a range of critical business initiatives, such as information governance, big data analytics, business intelligence (BI), data migrations and more. The new business impact analysis feature of SAP Information Steward enables users to track metrics and assign a financial value to each data issue, as well as identify potential savings using what-if analysis of adjusting the quality levels.
Users are also guided step-by-step by a data quality advisor feature to rapidly measure and fix the quality of their information assets. This new capability provides intelligence to analyze and assess data and make recommendations for any required remedies to data issues, such as using built-in workflows to allow the user to refine cleansing rules to get even better data correction results. SAP Information Steward now has the ability to be seamlessly integrated with other solutions, for example with the SAP® Master Data Governance application, to offer a one-click launch of the governance process to correct enterprise master data based on data quality analysis.
