SAP and Intel develop business data search platform

Antony Savvas

SAP has joined forces with Intel to co-develop a technology to speed search and manipulation of business data.

The solution, codenamed Euclid, is already being tested by several customers. Intel has contributed its 64-bit processor technology to the project, and SAP has thrown in a search system and related algorithms.

Euclid is designed to give customers of SAP’s enterprise applications quick, Google-like search abilities with extensive indexing capabilities.

To help speed up searches, Euclid keeps large amounts of data on the chip in main memory. Intel’s 64-bit processing system enables this and allows users to quickly manipulate the data for business purposes.

SAP is also working with Cisco to bundle its business solutions with the networking giant’s router and switch hardware.

Such bundles are to be aimed at smaller-sized organisations who want to take advantage of streamlined business software and networking implementations.

SAP has not confirmed timescales for commercial releases of the search and networking solutions.
