SAP and Google Cloud: Shaping Open Data and AI for Enterprises

Unleashing the Power of Data

Data lies at the core of digital transformation and AI development. However, businesses often face significant challenges in integrating complex data sources and extracting actionable insights. SAP Datasphere, coupled with Google's data cloud, enables organizations to merge data from various sources, including mission-critical data from SAP systems, into a unified and real-time view. This unified data foundation ensures that businesses retain complete business context and can expedite their digital transformation journey.

Christian Klein, CEO of SAP SE, emphasizes the value of this partnership: "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. Our customers not only benefit from the business AI already built into our systems, but also from a unified data foundation."

Thomas Kurian, CEO of Google Cloud, echoes this sentiment: "SAP and Google Cloud now offer an incredibly comprehensive and open data cloud, providing a foundation for the future of enterprise AI. By deeply integrating SAP software 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."
