SAP Expands Big Data Drive with Intel, Hortonworks Deals

data centerSAP has reached agreements with Intel and Hortonworks to resell both companies’ Hadoop software distributions as part of plans to accelerate SAP’s big data push, InformationWeek reported Thursday.

Doug Henschen writes that SAP intends for the two to lead to new applications and a revamped big data science team.

“SAP plus Intel can galvanize the major investments that Intel is making (in Hadoop),” Irfan Khan, senior vice president and general manager of SAP’s big data business, told InformationWeek.

The company will offer the partnerships rather than create its own Hadoop distribution, with the Hortonworks offering as the open source version.

SAP’s Hana clients will be able to connect to Hadoop to manage big data using a Hive interface and SAP Hana Smart Data Access, according to the report.
