TomTom expands SAP partnership for location awareness

Under an expanded partnership, TomTom will provide global coverage of its location-based capabilities for SAP applications.

TomTom will provide geocoding and address validation capabilities, to allow SAP to expand its offerings in both cloud and on-premise solutions from SAP’s Enterprise Information Management portfolio such as SAP Data Services and SAP HANA-based applications.

Anders Truelsen, managing director of TomTom’s licensing business unit, said that the continuation and expansion of the company’s relationship with SAP is a positive.

“Benefiting from the new spatial capabilities in SAP applications, SAP’s customers can now start investing in and leveraging the power of location with the confidence provided by TomTom’s address and geo content,” he said.

“Location awareness provides important additional information to companies that want to drive new innovations and business models from technologies like the Internet of Things and Industry 4.0.  SAP is investing in a significant opportunity to enrich and add value to existing data natively, within SAP’s solutions, and this agreement helps us realise these goals,” said Philip On, VP product marketing, EIM solutions, SAP.
