Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, data integrity, and integration solutions, today announced that its iWay Universal Adapter Suite has achieved SAP-certified integration with the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform. The certification is a reflection of the iWay Adapter Suite’s proven interoperability and ability to easily integrate data residing within SAP solutions.
Organizations rely on data residing in hundreds of sources from Excel spreadsheets to SQL Servers and custom applications. To effectively transform this raw information into business insights, companies must overcome this siloed environment to integrate and harmonize their data assets. Without properly integrated data, organizations face disparate and disjointed reports, inconsistencies in the board room, and multiple versions of the truth.
Information Builders’ iWay Adapter Suite is designed to help organizations easily access and unify their existing data sources, breaking down data silos and laying the groundwork for effective BI and analytics. The suite comprises more than 300 off-the-shelf adapter technologies for creating and deploying web services and other APIs from a variety of adapters, including application system, B2B, transaction processing, terminal emulation, and technology adapters. Each adapter technology includes a complete library of predefined transaction set dictionaries used to create interfaces, without the need to modify existing systems or write additional code. The certified integration with SAP’s NetWeaver® platform enhances the benefits of iWay Adapter by allowing organizations to easily assimilate existing data from their SAP solutions.
Gregory Dorman, senior vice president and general manager, iWay Software, Information Builders, said:
“In developing a successful information management strategy, one of the most critical and often challenging steps is unifying data from numerous sources across the business landscape. Our iWay Adapter Suite is one of the many solutions that Information Builders offers to help streamline this process and speed time to value. That’s why we are excited to announce that it has achieved certified integration with the SAP NetWeaver technology platform, adding to the more than 300 data sources that our customers can easily integrate using the suite.”
