About the Team

Enterprise data is often siloed in applications which doesn’t allow customers or software vendor to harness its full value.

As leading cloud software company, SAP is in a unique position as the LoB cloud applications contain an immense treasure of data. However, it is not easy to leverage this asset to harvest its valuable insights. This is caused by the complexity and isolation of the individual systems.

SAP’s data plane will break those silos to provide an integrated view and enable cross-application intelligence. It will provide a unified data management layer to connect, discover, orchestrate, and manage both internal and external data assets. The data plane will enable analytical and intelligent capabilities across the SAP Intelligent Enterprise by providing actionable insights within business processes.

The data plane will comprise a set of automated services to provide and consume data assets holistically:

  • SAP HANA Cloud & HANA Data Lake as storage layer ( ONE Data Lake)
  • SAP Data Intelligence for data ingestion and connectivity
  • SAP Data Warehouse Cloud as cross-application semantic business layer
  • SAP Analytics Cloud (incl. BI & Planning)

The realization of the data plane will be driven as SAP wide cross-development initiative, whereby the program management, core development as well as product management will be led by the HANA & Analytics – Data Management & Platform organization.

Our development teams are mainly located in Walldorf, Germany; Palo Alto/La Crosse, US; Istanbul, Turkey; Brazil, China, India, and others.
