By raspberryswirl on May 08, 2008
At partner SAP’s annual SAPPHIRE Conference next week (http://www1.sapsapphire.com/usa2008/index.htm), Sun showcased two new Sun and SAP solutions that solve business intelligence and compliance challenges for enterprises.
Sun and SAP worked together to certify the Sun and Intel solution for SAP’s NetWeaver BI Accelerator (http://www.sap.com/usa/platform/netweaver/index.epx) that gives end-users better and more timely data insights and decisions. The solution provides a Web search engine-like capability for structured data, delivering a 10 to 100 times average speed increase for query performance. SAP Netweaver BI Accelerator is now available from Sun on the Sun Blade 6000 system. This solution includes the Sun Blade 6250 server modules with 16 or 32 GB of memory, Sun StorageTek 6140 array with an Oracle Cluster File System, Fiber channel and network switches, and is cabled, labeled and ready to integrate.
Sun demonstrated how the integration of its identity management solution with SAP’s governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solution creates a streamlined, end-to-end compliance process for enterprises. The latest versions of Sun’s Java System Identity Manager (IDM) (http://www.sun.com/software/products/identity_mgr/index.jsp) have been integrated with SAP’s GRC Access Control (http://www.sap.com/solutions/grc/index.epx) for the first time using Web services. By integrating the solutions, IT departments can better control and authorize business applications for governance and compliance purposes.
Sun and SAP have a long history of partnering to provide enterprises with all the technology they need to optimize SAP solutions in the datacenter. For more information on the partnership, visit sun.com/sap/
