SoftwareOne and Dynatrace collaborate to enhance observability of SAP environments

Collaboration allows clients to leverage AI-based analytics to optimise SAP systems based on data gathered by SoftwareOne’s PowerConnect

SoftwareOne Holding AG, a global provider of end-to-end software and cloud technology solutions, and Dynatrace (NYSE: DT), the leader in unified observability and security, today announced a new collaborative initiative to expand the scope of Dynatrace observability across all SAP systems. Using SoftwareOne’s PowerConnect for SAP Solutions, data can be gathered from most SAP products or systems, sent, and analysed within Dynatrace.

Monitoring SAP Systems can be challenging due to the inherent complexity, usage of different technologies (ABAP, Java, and Cloud offerings), and the sheer amount of generated data. Additionally, the increasing level of integrations that SAP systems support for modernising businesses poses a challenge. An integrated operations and security management platform for SAP and non-SAP systems has become a critical requirement for modern businesses. Dynatrace with PowerConnect addresses this need.

“This collaboration is a game-changer and provides Dynatrace users with deep observability across the entire SAP ecosystem,” said Guido Deinhammer, CPO Infrastructure Observability at Dynatrace. “SAP customers can now leverage the power of Dynatrace AI-powered analytics and automation to optimise operations of the SAP systems based on precise data gathered by SoftwareOne’s PowerConnect. Use cases range from service availability and performance, user experience, cloud migration, and upgrades to security and compliance, and provide users with unrivaled insights into their SAP systems right off the bat.”

SAP Systems are often integrated with non-SAP systems. SAP focuses on insights within the borders of SAP. Dynatrace and SoftwareOne’s PowerConnect helps to run every part of IT environments effectively; achieve a comprehensive perspective of IT and business performance by merging infrastructure data with SAP data. This way, thorough holistic analysis and troubleshooting of the complete IT stack by combining Infrastructure and SAP monitoring in a single platform is possible.

“I am excited about this collaboration as we are helping new customers improve the monitoring and observability of their SAP systems”, says PF Grillet, SAP Global Lead at SoftwareOne. “Deploying and managing SAP environments is not an easy task, nor is analysing their performance and ensuring security. Complex integrations make management and operational success a challenge, but with Dynatrace and PowerConnect we are providing an effective solution with pro-active alerts with an intuitive user experience. I am thrilled that we can deliver it as part of a collaborative effort that will empower more SAP users to drive business efficiency.”
