SAP to Acquire 3-D Visualization Software Maker Right Hemisphere
SAP (Walldorf, Germany) will acquire Right Hemisphere (San Ramon, CA, USA). As part of its mission to help customers innovate the way they do business, SAP will acquire Right Hemisphere, a leading provider of visual enterprise solutions. The 3-D model-based visualization and communications technologies from Right Hemisphere will enhance SAP® software and enable visual navigation and interrogation of an entire product or asset and all its associated data in one, unified environment.
The addition of visualization capabilities to the core product offerings from SAP stands to help customers across diverse industries accelerate time to market, increase people and asset productivity and improve information quality and processes across all lines of businesses. This acquisition is consistent with SAP’s strategy to complement existing applications and solutions with innovative technologies and capabilities while maintaining its successful track record of organic growth. The companies already share numerous joint customers that are already seeing benefits of the combination of enterprise software and 3-D visualization.
“We are very excited to be part of SAP,” said Michael Lynch, CEO, Right Hemisphere. “The combination of SAP’s vast set of business information and Right Hemisphere’s visualization capabilities will change the way businesses of any size create, manage and deliver products and services across their enterprise and their supply chain.”
“Right Hemisphere technology empowers customers to visualize business processes from design to manufacturing through sales, operations and service, helping people to easily cooperate and communicate using the most powerful human sense — vision,” said Peter Maier, general manager and head of Line of Business Solutions, SAP AG. “By bringing 3-D to the enterprise and enriching it with business data, we’re setting a new standard in helping companies achieve more efficiency, accuracy and flexibility across the value chain.”
SAP customers will get tangible benefits from the acquisition of Right Hemisphere that will help them unify, synchronize and deliver visual product and business information to improve global product development, launch and support processes.
