Blog / SAP + Google Cloud’s Gen AI Push: SAP Users, Time to Step Forward?
Generative AI is reshaping industries across the board. For business leaders, it’s no longer about the ‘ifs’ but about the practical considerations needed to integrate Gen AI into their existing workflows. And that’s because businesses today see a clear path to value with Gen AI when they ask a direct question, such as “What’s our inventory status for product X in warehouse Y?” and get a straight-up answer like “5,000 units in stock, with increased demand expected next week.”
This was unthinkable even a year back. Now, simply by typing a question, anyone—regardless of their SQL expertise—can generate a query. This query identifies the right datasets, combines them with external datasets, validates the information, synchronizes with other systems, and delivers a response in seconds.
Moreover, the management and upkeep of these Gen AI models have become significantly more streamlined. Most of the model management, creation, data governance, and quality assurance are managed by data platforms like Planning in a Box.
SAP is paying attention because its customer needs are evolving. SAP customers are now keen to integrate external datasets, combine SAP with non-SAP data, and quickly adopt customizable Gen AI solutions that mesh with their existing systems and yield tangible business ROI. For SAP, Google Cloud is a key partner in this journey because of Google Cloud’s unparalleled array of capabilities in this arena.
The partnership between SAP and Google Cloud has only grown stronger over the years, a fact that was underscored during their joint appearance at Sapphire. Now, with their recent collaboration in Open data and AI, their mutual goal is to leverage Generative AI to extract immense value from data found in SAP systems and third-party sources. This collaboration will help businesses operate with greater security while also promoting sustainable enterprise operations.
The strategy involves combining the capabilities of SAP Datasphere’s integrated open data cloud with Vertex AI. The goal is to launch generative AI-driven industry solutions, starting with the automotive sector, and to introduce new features that aid customers in bolstering their sustainability initiatives.
