Better Insight Faster with the SAP High-Performance Analytics Appliance (SAP HANA)
One of the key challenges faced by organisations of any size and any industry is managing and analysing the soaring quantity of data, and harnessing that information to improve the business. IT is challenged by the high costs associated with the purchase and maintenance of hardware needed to accommodate large data volumes, while business users need quick access to information and analytics in order to react to changing market conditions.
SAP has always understood this challenge and has reacted by developing in-memory solutions that specifically address the need to analyse large data volumes while reducing IT costs.
SAP is evolving its in-memory technology with the introduction of SAP High-Performance Analytic Appliance (SAP HANA) software, a flexible, multi-purpose, data source agnostic in-memory appliance that combines SAP software components optimised on hardware provided and delivered by SAP leading hardware partners.
SAP HANA can enable organisations to analyse business operations based on large volumes of detailed information as it develops. Organisations can instantly explore and analyse all of their transactional and analytical data from virtually any data source in real time. Operational data is captured in memory as business happens, and flexible views expose analytic information at the speed of thought. External data can be added to analytic models to expand analysis across the entire organisation.
