SAP Unveils SAP HANA® Platform Innovations For Big Data And Spatial Processing

Stocks in this article: SAP

ORLANDO, Fla., May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today unveiled new breakthroughs in the in-memory SAP HANA® platform, including the latest innovations in service pack 6 (SP6). SAP HANA is a completely re-imagined platform that transforms transactions, analytics, predictive and text sentiment processing so that businesses can operate in real time. With this service pack, SAP is introducing new SAP HANA® smart data access technology to help enterprises dynamically derive real-time insights across heterogeneous sources such as Hadoop. New in-memory spatial capabilities in SAP HANA will help businesses uncover richer and meaningful signals from business and geospatial data. The expanded SAP HANA® One service will help customers and independent software vendors (ISVs) accelerate their time to value through flexible cloud deployment models. The completion of the integration of Sybase data management with SAP HANA will further transform customers' end-to-end data management landscape. The announcement was made at SAPPHIRE® NOW, held May 14–16, 2013, in Orlando, Florida.


"With SAP HANA, we have embarked on a journey to continuously re-think and transform how we access, interact with and analyze data to answer any question of any complexity in real-time," said Dr. Vishal Sikka, member of the Executive Board of SAP AG, Technology & Innovation. "Breaking down the unnecessary divide between OLTP and OLAP has only been the beginning. We will continue to re-invent real-time experiences by bringing the power of SAP HANA to more data varieties, sources and deployment options to enable enterprises to run as fast as our imaginations."

Smarter Data Access for Hadoop and Other Heterogeneous Data SourcesSAP HANA smart data access is the data virtualization technology in SAP HANA that enables dynamic data queries across heterogeneous relational and non-relational database systems such as Hadoop, SAP® Sybase® Adaptive Server® Enterprise (SAP Sybase ASE), SAP® Sybase® IQ and other third-party data warehouses. SAP is bringing the power of the SAP HANA platform to data virtualization, which will simplify data queries across heterogeneous sources while optimizing response time based on where data is stored and how it is used. SAP HANA smart data access helps customers build real-time Big Data applications with fast and secure query access to data across their business networks while minimizing unnecessary data transfers and data redundancy.

Spatial Data Processing for Richer InsightsSAP will further expand the SAP HANA platform with the introduction of new spatial data processing capabilities to combine geospatial data with business data, adding a new dimension to real-time business applications. Customers and ISVs will be able to process combinations of spatial, predictive and text analysis results within one SQL to simplify the development of intelligent, intuitive location-based solutions. Additionally, SAP HANA customers will be able to utilize geo-content at no additional charge, allowing customers to seamlessly develop and deploy spatially based solutions using native in-memory processing, mapping content and services.

These new spatial capabilities, content and services will particularly help industries that require real-time and mission-critical location solutions for planning, monitoring and analytics with a new level of performance and lower total cost of ownership (TCO). For example, energy infrastructure companies can use spatial processing capabilities in SAP HANA to identify and take action on high-risk pipeline components based on numerous variables in real time instead of days, thereby reducing potential outages, maintenance costs and risk of catastrophic failure.
