BryteFlow to liberate your SAP Data

With some of the planet’s most important applications running on them, SAP environments generate large amounts of valuable enterprise data. However, the true value in this data is rarely uncovered due to challenges with proprietary data formats, cost and scale. BryteFlow liberates SAP objects into usable models and assets on scalable AWS Data Lakes – with on-demand access to advanced analytics, AI and Machine Learning technologies.

In 2016 Origin embarked on a journey to create a cloud based Data and Analytics environment.  Bryte has been with us from the beginning as we turn this vision into a reality. There have been some unique challenges in our environment, such as the nature of our SAP deployment, the volumes of data involved, and the exact manner in which we wanted our data handled.  Throughout, Bryte has been more than a software vendor – it has been our ETL ‘partner’ in the full sense of the term.  They have been part of the strategic road map conversation, provided advice on our Amazon S3/Redshift Data lake architecture, have made material contributions to our knowledge of AWS products (in particular Redshift and EMR where their knowledge is outstanding) and have generally been a valued advisor on our journey.  Their software and business model appear to have significant flexibility, and as new requirements become apparent they are quick to evolve and incorporate new features into their core platform.  In short, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone embarking on a journey similar to ours.
