Hewlett-Packard Co. (HP) last week teamed up with applications giant SAP AG to promote the future benefits of running SAP's NetWeaver business intelligence (BI) stack on top of HP's Neoview data warehousing platform.
The HP deal, which SAP describes as an "expansion" of an existing relationship, marks the second such partnership between SAP and a major DW provider in the last six months. In late April, SAP teamed up with Teradata Corp. to promote a similar arrangement. HP, meanwhile, teamed up with Informatica Corp. recently to promote a joint data integration (DI) partnership; that accord involved both Neoview and HP's broader BI and DW services arms.
The agreement with HP is similar to a partnership that SAP signed six months ago with Teradata. Its similarity begs a few pressing questions, however. For example, the partnership between SAP and HP -- like that between SAP and Teradata -- addresses a common pain point: getting data out of SAP and into a non-SAP DW platform. In the case of the Teradata partnership, officials could cite dozens -- if not hundreds -- of joint deployments. SAP and HP talked up thousands of joint accounts, too, but HP officials were much more equivocal on the subject of joint SAP-Neoview deployments.
