The HANA Opportunity

February 11th, 2015 by blogadmin Leave a reply »

HANA is the innovation that makes this happen – not the legacy database world that separates OLTP, DW and OLAP, but rather a new category of database – one that is built on today’s modern hardware architecture to offer a unified data structure without compromising performance. HANA creates the opportunity to take an entirely new approach to building applications – removing yesterday’s constraints that have been sewn-into enterprise applications for the last couple decades.
S/4HANA is a full suite that is taking advantage of the HANA opportunity. S/4HANA is SAP’s core software reimagined, rebuilt to capitalize on the significant simplification that the HANA platform provides. This simplification comes by eliminating aggregates and indices, eliminating duplication of data, systematically separating Actual from Historical, and not requiring batch transaction or analytics queries. HANA provides an integrated Transaction Processing and Analytics data system that fundamentally changes how we build the enterprise software. As a result, S/4HANA will provide real-time access to all its users and use cases, and new features that capitalize on the fact that all queries come back fast enough for the user to explore the data. It also allows us to unify all the ERP data sets – unlocking deeper integration scenarios and another depth of insights.
What’s truly exciting is witnessing how customers will transform their own businesses with the innovations of HANA and S/4HANA.
