Organizations can now run SAP Hana as the underlying multimodel database service for the Esri ArcGIS system of record. Consequently, they can take advantage of increased performance; lower total cost of ownership; and easier integration of enterprise data with spatial data either on premise, in the cloud or in a hybrid deployment.
“Our partnership with Esri brings over 20 years of co-innovation to our joint customer base,” said SAP Senior Vice President of SAP Hana and Analytics Gerrit Kazmaier. “Through our latest co-innovation efforts, the Hana service is the first and only database as a service serving as the foundation of the enterprise geodatabase with ArcGIS. Esri ArcGIS powered by Hana now supports on-premise, cloud and hybrid environments. Customers can therefore choose their preferred deployment option to gain substantial performance and scale improvements; while connecting to a broader set of internal and external data sources for more powerful analytics and decision-making.”
The Hana service, a main component of SAP Hana Cloud Services, is now a supported enterprise geodatabase with Esri’s ArcGIS Enterprise and ArcGIS Pro, allowing businesses to benefit from full integration of enterprise and spatial data for greater insights, improved business decisions and quicker innovation.
The joint solution from SAP and Esri provides fully integrated analytics and visualizations in one multimodel database management system. It furthermore consolidates IT landscapes for lower administration costs and total cost of ownership.
San Diego transforms into smart city
The City of San Diego is using the powerful capabilities of SAP Business Suite software and Esri ArcGIS Enterprise to improve municipal service delivery and community collaboration through spatial insight. SAP, Esri and implementation partner Critigen are working together with the city to achieve interoperability between their platforms. They hope to achieve this through data integration, advanced analytics and dynamic map-based applications.
The goals of the project are to reduce overall technology costs; improve performance; and provide accurate and timely information for making more-informed decisions throughout the city.
“We are seeing many benefits from the SAP and Esri partnership,” City of San Diego’s Chief Innovation Officer Jonathan Behnke said. “For example, our firefighters can better plan and respond to calls. Within a few weeks a team from SAP, Critigen, Esri and Quartic Solutions built a map viewer showing hydrant status from our operational and GIS systems of record; SAP Business Suite and also Esri ArcGIS both running on Hana. The new tool improves efficiency and helps make the city safer.”
