Microsoft, SAP och Adobe samarbetar om öppen kunddata

I måndags berättade jätteföretagen om sitt nya samarbete inom Open Data Initiative, under konferensen Microsoft Ignite.

Vad det hela handlar om är möjligheten att dela data med varandra. All data kommer att delas mellan företagen i Microsoft Azure.

Här är deras pressmeddelande:

To deliver on the Open Data Initiative, the three partners are enhancing interoperability and data exchange between their applications and platforms — Adobe Experience Cloud and Adobe Experience Platform, Microsoft Dynamics 365, SAP C/4HANA and S/4HANA — through a common data model. The data model will provide for the use of a common data lake service on Microsoft Azure. This unified data store will allow customers their choice of development tools and applications to build and deploy services.

With the Open Data Initiative, companies will be able to:

  • Unlock and harmonize siloed data to create new value
  • Bi-directionally move transactional, operational, customer or IoT data to and from the common data lake based on their preference or needs
  • Create data-powered digital feedback loops for greater business impact, while also helping to enable their security and privacy compliance initiatives
  • Build and adopt intelligent applications that natively understand data, relationships and metadata spanning multiple services from Adobe, SAP, Microsoft and their partners

Technology leaders at top retail and consumer products companies, such as The Coca-Cola Company, Unilever and Walmart, have expressed support and excitement about the Open Data Initiative.
