Datasphere is the next generation of the SAP Data Warehouse Cloud solution and it already available. It enables data professionals to deliver scalable access to mission-critical business data. With a unified experience for data integration, data cataloging, semantic modeling, data warehousing, data federation, and data virtualization, Datasphere enables data professionals to help distribute mission-critical business data—preserving business context and logic—across their organization’s data landscape. Datasphere is built on Business Technology Platform (BTP), which includes strong enterprise security capabilities, such as database security, encryption, and governance. No additional steps or migrations are required for existing customers of Data Warehouse Cloud, who will benefit from new Datasphere functionality in their product environment. New functionality includes data cataloging that automatically discovers, manages, and governs data; simplified data replication to deliver data and its constant updates in real-time; and enhanced data modeling that preserves the rich business context of data in SAP applications. Additional application integration capabilities that link data and metadata from cloud solutions from SAP to Datasphere are planned.
SAP and its new open-data partners will help hundreds of millions of users across the world make informed business-critical decisions rooted in massive amounts of data. SAP’s strategic partners provide the unique strengths of their ecosystems and enable customers to combine all their data like never before. Initial partners include Collibra, which enables customers to achieve an enterprise governance strategy by building a complete data catalog with lineage across their entire data landscape—both SAP and non-SAP data; Confluent, which plans to connect its data streaming platform, empowering companies to unlock valuable business data and connect it with external applications in real time; Databricks, which allows customers to integrate their Data Lakehouse with SAP software so data can be shared with semantics preserved, helping customers simplify their data landscape; and DataRobot, which enables customers to leverage multimodal automated machine learning capabilities on top of Datasphere and bring it directly into their business data fabric on whichever cloud platform it resides.
