SAP and Google Cloud partner on open data and AI for enterprises

SAP and Google Cloud have expanded their partnership by introducing a comprehensive open data offering designed to simplify data landscapes and unleash the power of business data.

This offering enables customers to build an end-to-end data cloud that brings data from across the enterprise landscape using the SAP Datasphere solution together with Google’s data cloud, letting businesses view their entire data estates in real-time.

Data is the cornerstone of digital transformation and artificial intelligence (AI) development. Organisations invest significant resources building complex data integrations, custom analytics engines, and generative AI and natural language processing (NLP) models before they start to realise value from their data investments.

Data is the organisations’ most valuable asset and can contain critical information on supply chains, financial forecasting, human resources records, and omnichannel retail.

SAP Datasphere combines this mission-critical data with data from across the enterprise landscape, regardless of its origin. The ability to easily combine SAP software data and non-SAP data on Google Cloud, from virtually any other data source, means organisations can dramatically accelerate their digital transformation with a fully-defined data foundation that retains complete business context.

“Bringing together SAP systems and data with Google’s data cloud introduces entirely new opportunities for enterprises to derive more value from their full data footprints. SAP and Google Cloud share a commitment to open data and our extended partnership will help break down barriers between data stored in disparate systems, databases, and environments,” said Christian Klein, CEO and member of the Executive Board at SAP.

“Few resources are as important to digital transformation as data. By deeply integrating SAP data and systems with our data cloud, customers will be able to utilise our analytics capabilities, as well as advanced AI tools and large language models to find new insights from their data,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO of Google Cloud.
