Major Electric Utility Selects Dolphin for SAP HANA Platform

Dolphin, a solution provider and SAP (News - Alert) software partner, has been selected by one of the nation's largest electric utilities, for the company’s archiving strategy for SAP’s NetWeaver Business Warehouse (BW) on the HANA platform.

To manage the database size of Dolphin’s new SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (BW) powered by SAP HANA, the utility will be using a nearline storage solution with analytics to manage database size and ensure optimal performance and control costs.

Company officials pointed out that this is the first implementation of SAP NetWeaver BW archiving and analytics on SAP HANA in North America for Dolphin and PBS Software GmbH, a provider of SAP add-on software in the areas of data archiving, extraction and storage.

According to company officials, the solution, PBS CBW NLS, has been certified for integration with SAP NetWeaver via SAP integration scenario NW-BW-NLS 7.3 on the SAP HANA platform.

Dolphin is the implementation partner and reseller of PBS products in the Western Hemisphere.

“Managing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) was a key factor for this utility,” Dr. Werner Hopf, CEO at Dolphin and director of the company’s archiving practice, said in a statement.

SAP NetWeaver BW on SAP HANA implementation with PBS nearline storage is critical to reducing costs, said Dr. Hopf.

“With PBS nearline storage, the company can aggressively self-manage database growth, setting parameters that keep the database size flat which controls cost—a tangible benefit,” he said.

In October, Dolphin announced the release of its PTS-AP (Process Tracking System for Accounts Payable) GW Content 5.0. The solution has been certified by SAP as powered by the SAP NetWeaver technology platform.

PTS-AP GW Content 5.0 lays the foundation for flexible, next-generation user interfaces that help enhance user productivity, delivering more functionality and greater usability to users.

Dolphin’s PTS-AP GW Content 5.0 has been certified by the SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) for integration with SAP NetWeaver Gateway (News - Alert) 2.0 technology.
