VirtDB releases the first free SAP Data Manager

A self-service solution to connect ERP systems with new generation analytics platforms. VirtDB is trying to cut down on cost and time with new tool without the need to install on Application Server.

VirtDB, a central-eastern European data management startup released the beta version of Data Unfolder Lite enabling R/3 users to analyze their operational ERP data in business intelligence tools, like Tableau, QlikView or TIBCO Spotfire. Until now analysis required costly preparations, planning and heavy corporate IT resource consumption to extract, transform and load (ETL) relevant SAP data first. VirtDB makes data analytics quick and affordable by changing the ETL process into a single-click user action.

Data Unfolder Lite uses the operating system’s clipboard to obtain data from SAP, it does not require any components to be installed on Application Server.

We have done many business intelligence projects where the time spent on load-SAP-data-from-here-to-there efforts were 40-50% in total.(…) It had no added value for customers most of the time. It just killed their productivity by hindering iterations on the data, laming the agility in analytics projects.

Data Unfolder Lite’s first version is targeted for personal use and fast prototyping of business intelligence content. VirtDB has an enterprise grade SAP data management product as well, called Data Unfolder, providing additional features and scalability. Both versions enable end-users to build data transfers from SAP to their own choice of business intelligence and big data systems without IT help.
