SAP has unveiled new services for HANA and the Cloud Platform at its annual conference Sapphire Now. For example, there is a new solution that is suitable for the construction of data lakes and there are new cloud services.
With the new HANA Cloud Services, SAP claims to be bringing the power and performance of the HANA database to the cloud. This gives users a single gateway to databases of any size. In addition, HANA’s in-memory technology is combined with data virtualisation, providing easy access to and use of data and flexible management.
According to the company, the new solution is suitable for building data lakes, which means that data collections managed by HANA can grow in size indefinitely. In addition, on premise users of HANA will also be able to benefit from the new services, as they will add flexible capacity, if necessary.
Through HANA Cloud Services and the Cloud Platform, customers can access all SAP and external applications, reducing duplication of data. Here it is also possible to apply advanced analytics, machine learning and other techniques to business processes.
Data Warehouse Cloud
A number of new services have already been developed that make use of the new HANA Cloud Services. One of these is the Data Warehouse Cloud, which offers a central, flexible solution for the storage of heterogeneous data. This means that data is always available for all possible user scenarios.
Data Warehouse Cloud allows organizations to pay only for the actual use of the solution. Companies can sign up for a beta program to test the solution.
In addition, SAP, together with its partner OpenText, is bringing a service for Document Management as a Service to the Cloud Platform. OpenText creates solutions for Enterprise Information Management. With their service, companies are able to manage their unstructured documents. The solution must make information available throughout the business process, simplifying collaborations and increasing productivity.This news article was automatically translated from Dutch to give Techzine.eu a head start.
