SAP integrates PilotWorks into biz software suite

COMMENT ON THIS ARTICLE

In a move to strengthen its portfolio of analytic applications, SAP AG has agreed to acquire privately-held Pilot Software Inc., a maker of strategy management software based in Mountain View, California.

SAP intends to integrate Pilot Software’s core product, the business analytic application PilotWorks, into its suite of business software products that run on the NetWeaver integration platform, the Walldorf, Germany, company said Tuesday.

No financial details were disclosed.

In earlier interviews, SAP CEO Henning Kagermann said the company would make “fill-in” acquisitions in areas where it needed to “generate innovative add-on products around … core products.” Kagermann said “analytic capabilities are part of end-to-end business processes” and referred to embedded analytics as “the future.”

The Pilotworks application provides analytic tools for executives to manage goals and initiatives more effectively and bring structure and consistency to regularly-scheduled operational review processes.
