SAP, EMPEA intro analytics tool for investment advice in emerging markets

Summary:Essentially, SAP has the tool set (thanks primarily to its flagship HANA in-memory database) while EMPEA will provide the brainpower.


SAP has teamed up with the Emerging Markets Private Equity Association for a new scheme for promoting and advising sustainable investment strategies across emerging economies.

Essentially, SAP has the tool set (thanks primarily to its flagship HANA in-memory database) while EMPEA will provide the brainpower.

EMPEA already retains more than 300 fund managers and institutional investors from nearly 60 countries, representing over $1 trillion of managed assets.

SAP is essentially donating the analytics capabilities that will be reformatted into an interactive dashboard, powered by the German software provider's BusinessObjects dashboard solutions.

The platform is set up to display the impact of equity and venture capital funding across emerging markets with features for honing in on capital flows, trends and country-level details.

Both parties have already demonstrated the platform for more than 800 emerging market investors at a conference hosted by the International Finance Corporation in Washington, D.C. last week.

For the general public, the dashboards and a summary of private equity statistics in emerging markets is available online now. More in-depth data is available to EMPEA members with a subscription.;
