SAP and Google have announced that they will be expanding their partnership in the arena of open data and AI for enterprises. 

The broadened partnership will introduce an open data offering that is designed to simplify data landscapes, and also aims to enable customers to build an end-to-end data cloud that transports data across the enterprise landscape. 

This makes use of both the SAP Datasphere solution and Google’s data cloud. Businesses will be able to view their entire data estates in real time and maximize value from their Google Cloud and SAP software investments. 

SAP Datasphere combines mission-critical data with data from across the enterprise landscape, regardless of its origin. Organizations will be able to accelerate their digital transformation with a fully-defined data foundation that retains complete business context, as they will expectantly be able to easily combine SAP software data and non-SAP data on Google Cloud, from virtually any other data source. 

SAP and Google Cloud’s new open data offering compliments the RISE with SAP solution and will enable customers to access business-critical data in real-time, simplify data landscapes, create trusted insights with Google Cloud’s advanced AI and machine learning (ML) models, perform advanced analysis, utilize joint solutions for sustainability and use SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) on Google Cloud globally. 

“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,” said Christian Klein, CEO at sap. “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. Our customers not only benefit from the business AI already built into our systems, but also from a unified data foundation.”

“SAP and Google Cloud now offer an incredibly comprehensive and open data cloud, providing a foundation for the future of enterprise AI,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO at Google Cloud. “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 utilize our analytics capabilities, as well as advanced AI tools and large language models to find new insights from their data.”
