What is SAP HANA?

SAP HANA is today’s most advanced in-memory database management system.
It allows organisations to operate in real time and make better decisions.

What are SAP HANA’s key benefits?

 

A comprehensive, single, powerful platform deployable on-premise or in the cloud, SAP HANA accelerates business processes, delivers more intelligence and simplifies IT environments, removing the need to maintain separate legacy systems and siloed data.

Advantages of SAP HANA include:

  • Reduced complexity. It processes transactions and analyses huge amounts of live data at high speeds, while reducing redundancy, footprint, hardware and IT operations.
  • Versatility. Deployment options include public or private cloud, tailored datacentre or certified appliance configurations from our recommended partner Huawei, the leading global information and communications technology solutions provider.
  • Real payback. A n IDC study has shown customers can realise as much as a 575 per cent five-year return on investment by using HANA to increase innovation and decrease data management costs. Also, according to a survey from Panorama, SAP HANA has the greatest and fastest payback of all platforms for digital transformation with a significant proportion of users reporting this recouping happening in under a year.

What are SAP HANA’s main features?

 

  • Database management. Users can manage database volumes using multitenant containers and dynamic tiering, across multi-tier storage, to achieve best performance and lower cost of ownership.
  • Data access. Organisations can gain complete and accurate views of their operations by accessing data at any source – internal or external – using virtualisation, integration or replication, ensuring its quality easily.
  • Analytics processing. Users can gain new and unprecedented insights by leveraging SAP HANA’s advanced machine learning and data processing capabilities – text, predictive, spatial, graph, streaming and time series.
  • App development. Organisations can take advantage of best-in-class modern development and deployment tools to prototype, validate, build and deliver next-generation applications that combine analytics and transactions for any device.
  • Administration. Users can simplify system administration and IT operations with tools that are continuously available from any device or location.
  • Security. Organisations can keep their communications, data storage and application services secure with robust identity and access management controls. SAP HANA offers best-in-class software security, patching and encryption, providing a dashboard so users can monitor all security-related key performance indicators.
