Syniti Knowledge Platform now an SAP Endorsed App
Wed, 12th Jul 2023

Syniti, an expert in enterprise data management, has announced that its Syniti Knowledge Platform (SKP) is now an SAP Endorsed App.

SAP Endorsed Apps are a category of solutions from SAP’s partner ecosystem that help customers become best-run, intelligent enterprises. 

In addition to holding Endorsed app status, the SKP has been sold as an SAP Solution Extension under the name SAP Advanced Data Migration & Management by Syniti for nearly a decade. 

Customers looking to accelerate their SAP application transformation projects can now obtain the same certified Syniti product directly from Syniti as an SAP Endorsed App or via SAP as a solution extension, providing choice and flexibility in contracting.

Syniti highlights that data migration is critical to business application transformations like moving to SAP S/4HANA, with substantial project time and money allocated to handling data. 

The 2023 American SAP User Group (ASUG) Pulse of the SAP Customer Research surveys members regarding SAP technology and shows that the top barriers to upgrading technology include timeline extensions, cost, business process disruption, user adoption and quality issues.

Additional findings show continued challenges with integration, with the top issue (28%) being data errors spreading. 

Breaking down the silos that have traditionally defined the enterprise data management industry, the SKP is designed to provide a unified, cohesive enterprise data management platform in a single, cloud-based solution. 

Leveraging advanced machine learning and process automation, it helps streamline migration initiatives while maintaining high-quality of data to help optimize and simplify customers cloud transformations.

When moving to SAP S/4HANA, the SKP and SAP Advanced Data Migration & Management handle SAP and third-party data, which Syniti says is critical for companies dealing with mergers & acquisitions or when they have other legacy systems to consolidate. 

According to an IDC Business Value Study, customers using the SKP experienced significant business value and project benefits during their data migration projects: 314% three-year return on investment with an average eight-month payback on investment, $914,000 in reduced operating expenses, 98% reduction in unplanned downtime and 46% reduced time to complete data migration projects.

Kevin Campbell, the CEO of Syniti, says: “The findings in the IDC Business Value Study demonstrate the very real benefits our customers experience when working with Syniti.” 

“Having our flagship product endorsed and available on SAP Store provides even more confidence that Syniti is the right partner to guide organizations through the complexity of their critical data migration projects.” 

“We are honored to have our product offered not only as an SAP solution extension, but now as an SAP Endorsed App as well, which further underscores the importance our companies place on data as a critical component of any transformation project,” says Campbell.  

Darryl Gray, Global Vice President, Software Partner Solution Monetization at SAP, says: “We are focused on increased collaboration and growth for our partners, like Syniti, to help them and our customers succeed in a dynamic and changing environment.” 

“SAP Endorsed Apps are tested and premium certified, and we are pleased to have Syniti’s innovative Knowledge Platform as a proven solution available to customers.” 

The SKP is available for digital discovery and purchase at SAP Store, the digital marketplace for solutions from SAP and its partners.
