SYDNEY and AUCKLAND – 31 March, 2014
REALTECH and EV Technologies (EVT) are pleased to announce a strategic partnership that will combine the strengths of each company to provide enhanced complementary services on both sides of the Tasman. “The real beneficiaries of this agreement will be our clients and prospects,” says REALTECH Managing Director Andrew Spicer. “We are now in a position to extend the utility of SAP BusinessObjects®, SAP Edge® and SAP Crystal® solutions to our clients while EV Technologies will be able to offer core SAP technology expertise to their client base as an integrated solution.”
This partnership will also give REALTECH’s customers access to EVT’s SAP Certified Solution, Sherlock®. “Sherlock® for SAP BusinessObjects helps companies identify which data sets and reports have the most value to an organisation,” says Clint Vosloo, Managing Partner of EV Technologies. “Not all data has the same information value. With Sherlock®, organisations can monitor which data sets and reports are the most utilised. By the same token, analysts can see which data is superfluous. Immense savings can be realised by rationalising data sets and allocating resources to focus on the data that has the most positive impact on an organisation’s decision-making.”
REALTECH and EVT are targeting the Australasian market with their combined offerings. “Our participation at the ‘Mastering SAP Technologies’ conference in Melbourne is the first of many initiatives we will be undertaking as we roll out our services to the Trans-Tasman SAP community,” says Spicer. “We are especially excited about providing our expert SAP skills combined with EVT’s Business Intelligence capabilities to joint clients and the possibilities of using EVT’s Sherlock® to help unlock the potential of SAP HANA®.”
“With the massive amounts of data now available, organisations need a robust model to evaluate exactly which data sets contain the most relevant information,” explains Vosloo. “Sherlock®’s strength is that it can help analysts drill down into the usage patterns within a company’s existing SAP BusinessObjects landscape and provide them with data lineage, metadata and report pathways to identify the most appropriate information and then ensure that it is delivered to the right people. It is a dynamic time in the information and analytics field and we are very pleased about this partnership.”
“REALTECH is the ideal Australasian partner for us,” says Vosloo. “They have a track record of success, forward-looking leadership and a strong technical team that ensures positive outcomes. We are just starting to unleash the untapped power of an organisation’s data sets and the combination of SAP, REALTECH and our own Sherlock® will have a significant positive impact on the way Australasian businesses capture, view, use and manage their information resources.”
