Attunity Replicate for SAP enables real-time and application-level data replication for universal analytics
BURLINGTON, MA – February 27, 2017 – Attunity Ltd. (NASDAQ: ATTU), a leading provider of data integration and Big Data management software solutions, announced today that it has signed a $1.8 million deal with a global food processing company (the "Customer") that will use Attunity Replicate for SAP to ingest SAP data in real-time to its Hadoop data lake. The solution is expected to enable the Customer to improve efficiency across many business units by having seamless access to analyze data from SAP and other business systems.
Like many enterprises using SAP, the Customer relies heavily on SAP ECC systems to manage core business information such as cash flow, raw materials, and production capacity, as well as business transactions such as purchase orders and payroll across the enterprise. With the key goal to improve efficiency and provide freedom of analytics across their sales and production units, the Customer decided to implement a corporate strategy that merges data from all data sources into a centralized data lake, including data originating from hundreds of SAP tables across multiple SAP systems.
The Customer expressed that a critical deciding factor in choosing its data replication vendor would be the vendor’s ability to support SAP’s unique data model and its use of pooled and clustered tables which store data in a format that is only accessible with substantial SAP application knowledge or integration. Additional critical requirements were real-time data delivery and support for large data volumes. After trying and failing with alternative database replication vendors that could not meet these requirements, the Customer selected Attunity Replicate for SAP. Beyond its deeper application level integration with SAP, it proved capable of scaling up to move billions of records and deliver data changes in under five seconds.
“Corporations including the largest companies in the world are bringing their business to Attunity for our proven technology and expertise in moving heterogeneous data, including SAP data, and making it universally available for analytics,” explained Shimon Alon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Attunity. “Our ability to uniquely meet this customer’s requirements demonstrates our innovation and leadership, and we look forward to engaging the large market of SAP customers who plan to analyze data in Hadoop, data lakes and the Cloud.”
