CaptureNew technologies are emerging and combining to enable the real-time collection and sharing of data. This makes for an important factor in how we make sense of and visualize location-based data to tell engaging stories. By visualizing real-time data with its demographic context, we are able to offer an analytics platform for faster, more accurate decision-making.

Since SAP’s partnership with Esri in 2013, our business intelligence (BI) solutions have offered innovations for geo-spatial analysis. Together with our technology partners for geo-spatial solutions (including Galigeo, Critigen, and Centigon), we’re delivering many geo-spatial analytics solutions that provide geo-based valued insights to many organizations.



Galigeo and Geo-Spatial Solutions

Galigeo offers a location intelligence extension for SAP Lumira that gives end users and analysts access to a feature-rich set of mapping and spatial analytics tools.  Galigeo’s solution allows connections to a broad range of SAP products, including SAP BusinessObjects Web Intelligence software, SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards software, SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio, and the SAP Business Warehouse (SAP BW) application. It can be deployed for Web browsers or mobile apps.
