SAP quietly acquired a small data integration software developer, Callixa, whose technology SAP will use as a core component of its NetWeaver platform, officials said.

Callixas technology centers "around helping customers with the overall data challenge," said an SAP spokesperson. "The challenge is to get a unified cleanse of data, and in the same way you have to go out and look for data in a number of places. This enables users to get access to data in a number of places."

The acquisition, for an undisclosed sum, brings to SAP distributed query processing technology that lets developers write queries to disparate data sources and have a unified response returned. The subsequent data is used, in a broad sense, in business intelligence, reporting and analytics applications—an area SAP and its competitors are targeting.
