SAP DATASPHERE: GAME-CHANGING LEAP WITH COLLIBRA, CONFLUENT, DATABRICKS & DATAROBOT PARTNERSHIPS
What is the SAP Datasphere announcement all about?
SAP has unveiled the SAP Datasphere solution, the latest iteration of its data management portfolio that simplifies customer access to business-ready data across their data landscape. In addition, SAP has formed strategic partnerships with leading data and AI companies such as Collibra, Confluent, Databricks and DataRobot to enrich the SAP Datasphere and help organizations develop a unified data architecture that securely combines SAP and non-SAP data.
What is SAP Datasphere?
SAP Datasphere is a comprehensive data service that delivers seamless and scalable access to mission-critical business data and is in essence the next generation of SAP Data Warehouse Cloud. SAP has kept all the capabilities of SAP Data Warehouse Cloud and added newly available data integration, data cataloging, and semantic modeling features, which we will continue to build on in the future.

Why does this matter to you?
The announcement is significant because it eliminates the complexity associated with accessing and using data from disparate systems and locations, spanning cloud providers, data vendors, and on-premise systems. Customers have traditionally had to extract data from original sources and export it to a central location, losing critical business context along the way and needing dedicated IT projects and manual effort to recapture it. With SAP Datasphere, customers can create a business data fabric architecture that quickly delivers meaningful data with the business context and logic intact, thereby eliminating the hidden data tax.
As a solution partner in this ecosystem, we are excited about the collaboration and the added value it provides:
- With Collibra SAP customers can deliver an end-to-end view of a modern data stack across both SAP and non-SAP systems, enabling them to deliver accurate and trusted data for every use, every user, and across every source.
- Confluent and SAP are working together to make it easier than ever to connect SAP software data to external data with Confluent in real-time to power meaningful customer experiences and business operations.
- Databricks and SAP share a vision to simplify analytics and AI with a unified data lakehouse, enabling them to share data while preserving critical business context.
- DataRobot and SAP’s joint customers can now also leverage machine learning models trained on their business data with speed and scale to see value faster, using the SAP Datasphere as the foundation layer.
