SAP and Google Cloud Expand Partnership


SAP and Google Cloud have announced an extensive expansion of their partnership, introducing an open data offering designed to simplify data landscapes and unleash the power of business data.

The offering enables users 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, so businesses can view their entire data estates in real time and maximise value from their Google Cloud and SAP software investments.

Data is the cornerstone of digital transformation and AI development.

Organisations spend 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 originating from SAP systems, in particular, is among organisations’ most valuable assets and can contain critical information on supply chains, financial forecasting, human resources records, omnichannel retail and more.

SAP Datasphere combines this mission-critical data with data from across the enterprise landscape, regardless of its origin.

Being able to 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,” said Christian Klein, CEO and member of the Executive Board of SAP SE. “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, Google Cloud. “Few resources are as important to digital transformation as data. By deeply integrating SAP software 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.”
