Rolta and SAP AG has announced a strategic original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement where Rolta will integrate numerous industry solutions with platform technology from SAP. Rolta will provide customers across the world with cutting-edge business analytics and Big Data solutions designed to exploit the power of SAP technology by combining Rolta’s products with the database and technology portfolio offered by SAP. The portfolio, which includes the SAP HANA® platform, SAP® Sybase® IQ software, SAP® Predictive Analysis software and the SAP® Strategy Management application, will be embedded in Rolta’s solutions.
The scope of the agreement covers numerous solution suites, including Rolta OneView™ Suite, Rolta Geospatial Fusion™ Suite, Rolta iPerspective™ Suite and Rolta OT-IT Integration Suite™. These suites, particularly Rolta OneView, are eminently suited to harness the power of SAP HANA. The sophisticated, field-proven solutions will be integrated with SAP HANA and tailor-made to address an organization’s specific needs, such as business intelligence (BI) and analytics, in industries including oil & gas, chemicals, utilities, manufacturing and transportation.
The integrated operational excellence solution based on Rolta OneView, for example, will offer consistent information with actionable intelligence to stakeholders across the enterprise. It is expected to empower personnel to make timely decisions at different levels of the organization, helping to provide a framework to achieve goals sustainably by integrating mission-critical information across business functions in the enterprise. In addition, based on specific customer requirements, Rolta also offers implementation tools and consultancy services to accelerate technology consolidation and migration to various SAP technology platforms.
Today’s announcement signifies close cooperation between the companies, not only for continuous evolution of Rolta’s products running on newer SAP technologies, but also for tightened collaboration on supporting customers of both companies. While Rolta will be able to independently sell a broad range of SAP platform technology with its products at a global level, this strategic partnership will enable customers to take advantage of the combined solutions more readily due to an aggregated pool of sales resources and support to address different technology requirements and business needs. Through the partnership, existing and prospective customers will be able to benefit from the business value of SAP HANA and more easily incorporate various Rolta solutions into SAP technology environments.
Rolta has made extensive investments to create centers of excellence around the world comprising world-class infrastructure with a pool of experts to showcase Rolta’s innovative solutions running on SAP technologies. Rolta’s IP-based solutions are gaining increasing recognition from analysts and industry specialists.
SAP and Rolta recognize the importance of meeting customers’ expectations and have therefore nominated senior executives to oversee the partnership. SAP has named Steven Birdsall, Head of OEM Sales and Chief Operating Officer of SAP Global Ecosystem & Channels, SAP AG, and Rolta has named Preetha Pulusani and Pankit Desai, Presidents of Americas and EMEA Operations.
“SAP is committed to expanding innovation with our partners,” said Birdsall. “We provide openness and choice for our partners to build their own solutions based on their unique expertise on top of our platforms, ranging from cloud computing, mobile, in-memory, database and business analytics. Rolta has core expertise in domain content and powerful analytics for niche verticals. Their focus on IP-driven solutions, rather than pure-play services, is an ideal fit for SAP’s ecosystem strategy to help bring value to its customers worldwide.”
“We are very pleased to partner and work with SAP, leveraging its technology to continuously innovate and provide feature-rich Rolta products to our customers,” said K.K. Singh, Chairman & CEO, Rolta.
“This partnership will enable customers, including SAP’s large existing customer base, to enhance their use of SAP technologies by exploiting the power of our state-of-the-art solutions.”
