Silver Creek Systems, a pioneer and leader in enterprise product data quality solutions, announced that its DataLens System 3.2 has successfully achieved "Powered by SAP NetWeaver" qualification from SAP AG, the world's largest business software company. The DataLens System can now be deployed on the SAP NetWeaver Application Server J2EE engine and accessed via the SAP NetWeaver Portal. The DataLens System is the only data quality solution built from the ground-up to effectively adapt product data for use in mission-critical enterprise applications such as SAP(R) solutions. This integration will allow any SAP solution or partner application to seamlessly access high-quality product data in real-time to support any business process.

The SAP NetWeaver platform powers the mySAP(TM) Business Suite family of applications, SAP xApps(TM) packaged composite applications, and partner solutions. SAP NetWeaver unifies integration technologies into a single platform and is pre-integrated with business applications, enabling change and reducing the need for custom integration.

Product data quality is becoming a significant issue in applications from supply-chain integration to master data management (MDM) as data volumes exceed manual capabilities. Similarly, traditional data quality tools struggle with product data, as the process of adapting to new product domains can take months and lots of custom code, and even then, the tools are often stymied by the infinite variety of ways that data can be presented.

What sets Silver Creeks' DataLens System apart is that it is based on semantic technology - allowing it to "learn" new product domains within hours and seamlessly accommodate data in almost any form without modification. The result is more useful data for businesses and their customers, in less time, at a lower cost.

Product data quality issues plague all industries, but are particularly critical to those with high data volumes that require complex attribute-based search and matching, such as supply-chain integration, online sales or quoting, system consolidation, procurement, product data management and any form of PIM or MDM.

Silver Creek Systems' DataLens System uses breakthrough Content-in-Context technology to resolve data incompatibility and delivers usable data in any required form - standardized, localized and enriched - ready for loading into PIM and MDM systems, allowing these systems to deploy more quickly and operate more effectively. In addition, the DataLens System can improve search, navigation and custom publication - all of which are important, complementary functions to PIM and MDM systems.
