Denodo: Denodo provides a logical data layer that integrates all enterprise data siloed across the disparate systems and delivers it to business users in real time. Denodo has hundreds of connectors to various data sources which include certified connectivity to SAP ECC, BW and Hana. Many organizations leverage Denodo to provide a unified abstraction layer across SAP and other data siloes enabling business to access data in real time with embedded security and governance. Using Denodo with the SAP ecosystem organizations have the flexibility to leverage any consumption tool of choice and allows for an architecture that can adapt and allow for change.
W5 Data Warehouse in the cloud: Our differentiators and benefits in this area are in re-usability, standardizations, holistic reconciliation reporting, advanced SAP data quality templates and processes. These are all designed to significantly accelerate the data warehouse design, migrations, and the harmonization’s of data along the complete data value chain for our clients. In addition, we have pre-defined and road-tested templates and tools designed to adapt with the SAP road map in the data warehouse design and the enterprise information integration. This allows us to build our clients a trusted, but AGILE data warehouse design.
Denodo: Denodo’s Data Virtualization Platform provides an easy-to-deploy cloud solution that seamlessly integrates all SAP Data, SaaS, on-premises, or other cloud sources, in real-time, in the cloud. Denodo can be deployed in Azure, AWS, GCP and on-premise allowing for a Cloud-only or Cloud-Hybrid architecture. This allows data to be accessible regardless of where the data is stored. Data consumers often need to access data that is not always in a single Data Warehouse such as master data, reference data and operational data. Denodo can provide the unified access layer to all data that needs to be consumed by business users. Additionally, role-based access and security policies are applied to the data consumed ensuring governance standards are met regardless of where the data resides.
W5 (FIT-GAP):Our differentiators include a SAP intelligent enterprise suite transformation fit gap model approach. This approach starts with the SAP activate Explore Phase, where we use fit-gap standard processes to confirm and identify all the gaps that are in their past, current, and future state. These features include business discovery workshops and SAP “fit to standard” business process identification for the end-to-end digital transformation – blending in the safe agile methodology. We leverage SAP functional, coding and data structures that are built into SAP solution manager to help us adhere to existing business and practical requirements. Will utilize SAP tools and best practices so that we have a clear transparent view of all of the process’s, application development, and interfaces for the entire project lifecycle as it applies to our client’s needs.
Denodo:W5 Migrations: Our differentiators include our complete end to end understanding of how each ERP module works with integrations into third party applications. We have years of real word experience in SAP Best Practices and a vast array of tools and templates as it applies to the challenges of data movement. Our differentiators and benefits in this area are in re-usability, standardizations, holistic reconciliation reporting, advanced SAP data quality templates and processes. In addition, we have pre-defined and road-tested templates and tools designed to adapt with the SAP road map and the enterprise information integration. We will go through a series of workshops with your business teams to ensure that we are accounting for all the “day-to-day” detail that incorporates the current ECC system and ensuring those requirements are addressed as we analyze the various modules through our ETL process. A good deal of this information will be uncovered during the fit-gap analysis but it is important and critical to establish a complete understanding of how our clients utilizes the current system, what is no longer in use, and what needs to be developed or discussed e.g. Central Finance. In order to determine what the draft architecture will look like we will complete an architecture and infrastructure sizing exercise that correlates to these needs for S/4HANA. It is our intent to create a complete and comprehensive Sandbox, Development, Quality Assurance and Production cloud environment that seamlessly and securely connects, adhering to specifications, to all the required interfaces and integrations that our clients needs to run their business.
Denodo:As organizations are migrating to new applications, environments and architectures it is important that business continuity is ensured. Data will take time to migrate to a new application or warehouse and this creates another Data Silo to make data available to business consumers using their consumption tool of choice (Tableau, Qlik, R/Python, etc..) . To minimize risk to business users, Denodo can accelerate migrations and avoid disruptions by providing the unified access layer. Business users and applications can leverage existing BI Tools, Applications and Data Science tools pointing to Denodo without know about the migrations happening in the back end. Once the migrations are completed in a multiple phase process Denodo can point to the new SAP Data Source with zero disruption and down-time. Denodo’s Self Service Catalog provides access for business analysts to know what data the Virtual Layer is accessing with a detailed lineage. Denodo’s intelligent performance optimization ensures many optimizations capabilities such as delegation and re-writing of optimized queries to the source, MPP integration, caching for slow or limited access data sources and many more that ensures data is available to the business consumers in a timely manner.
