SAP enters into OEM agreement with HEREThe Nokia Company HERE has entered into a strategic OEM agreement with SAP. As per the deal, SAP plans to bundle base maps and content from HERE into the SAP HANA platform. The SAP HANA will allow the customers to access this geo-content to develop and deploy geo-spatial applications leveraging the native in-memory, spatial-processing capabilities of SAP HANA.

Speaking about association with SAP, Jacques-Etienne Grandjean, vice president EMEA, Enterprise Sales, HERE, said, “Digital maps are playing an increasingly important role across industries. Giving businesses the insight they need to respond to fast-changing circumstances, location services have become crucial for enhancing business analytics and enterprise applications. With the integration of maps provided by our HERE Platform bundled with SAP HANA, we can help businesses make better decisions faster, more transparently and cost-efficiently.”

On the hand, Hinnerk Gildhoff, development manager, responsible for spatial development, SAP HANA, SAP, said, “We anticipate that the geo-content and services provided by the HERE Platform, paired with the in-memory and spatial-processing capabilities of SAP HANA, will enable customers to simplify and accelerate the geo-enablement of applications.”

HERE wants to introduce an important dimension to business intelligence and big-data analytics. SAP aims to provide HERE content and map services with the latest release of SAP HANA, service pack 9 (SPS09), planned to be available later this month. Existing SAP customers will be able to download the solution via the SAP Service Marketplace community site.
