Accelerate SAP Data Intelligence with Red Hat and Intel

Data is a key digital business asset

The amount of data stored globally is expected to grow to 8.9 zettabytes by 2024.1  In a digital world, your data can be a competitive advantage. Even so, collecting data is only the starting point — how you use your data is the real differentiator.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies like SAP® Data Intelligence can help you turn your data into a valuable business asset. These technologies employ data to deliver insight, automate tasks, and advance system capabilities. Speed is critical — you must act quickly on your data to gain the most benefit.

Together, Red Hat and Intel offer a high-performance hybrid cloud foundation for SAP Data Intelligence to help you get more from your data.
