Companies must gain business value from massive amounts of data to improve internal processes such as fraud prevention, predictive maintenance, and supply chain optimization. Today, corporate data landscapes are increasingly complex. The volume of data is growing exponentially, driven by the massive expansion of unstructured data such as that from the Internet of Things (IoT), images, and social data. Moreover, data is stored in multiple locations—on-premises, in the cloud, and on edge devices, making it difficult to transform the large volumes and varieties of data coming from SAP and third-party systems to gain business insights.
SAP Data Intelligence is a comprehensive data management solution that discovers, connects, enriches, and orchestrates disjointed data assets into actionable business insights at enterprise scale. SAP Data Intelligence provides a unified way to manage, integrate, and process all your enterprise data to enable intelligent processes and support business decision-making.
SAP Data Intelligence is a containerized solution that is designed to be deployed on enterprise-grade Kubernetes clusters. Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform uses the enterprise-grade Kubernetes distribution called the OpenShift Kubernetes Engine to provide production-oriented container and workload automation. Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 4.6 is based on Kubernetes version 1.19, which includes native support for cluster snapshots, enabling cluster backup and recovery. When used with the Kubernetes Engine, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform gives administrators and developers the tools they need to deploy and manage applications and services at scale.
Dell EMC Ready Stack for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is a proven design to help organizations accelerate their container deployments and cloud-native adoption. In February 2021, the Dell EMC Ready Stack for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 4.6 was released for bare-metal deployments. In collaboration with Red Hat, we validated SAP Data Intelligence 3.1 for production support on the Ready Stack. A Kubernetes cluster is a prerequisite for installing SAP Data Intelligence. A container registry must mirror the SAP Data Intelligence container images during installation and upgrades and for the deployment of container images that are created based on data pipelines at run-time.
