SAP HANA, the first Translytical Data Platform

SAP HANA is the game-changing in-memory platform that combines a database that complies with the standards for atomicity, consistency, isolation, and durability (ACID) with multimodel capabilities, application development, advanced analytical processing, and flexible data integration. Remove the burden of maintaining separate legacy systems and their silos of data so you can become an intelligent enterprise in this ever-changing digital economy, where new technologies and solutions emerge every other day.

The massively parallel, in-memory paradigm underlying SAP HANA speeds information processing by a quantum leap. This architecture converges transactional and analytical workloads in a single data set in an in-memory, column-based data store. SAP HANA, in short, eliminates data redundancy, disk latency, and data movement among applications and analytical tools. And it provides advanced integration capabilities such as data federation, replication, bulk loading, transformation, cleansing, and remote data synchronization in the same architecture. It further simplifies application development and processing across data sources by providing a single virtualized view of data across your organization.

While SAP’s translytical platform might be overkill for smaller organization or organizations that don’t deal with SAP systems, its strategy to focus on the broader ecosystem, including non-SAP environments, will likely expand its market growth. Customers like SAP HANA’s translytical capabilities, including speed of transaction processing, ability to deliver business analytics in a fraction of the time compared to traditional platforms, and simplifying operational complexity by reducing ETL processes and giving the business access to up-to-the-minute accurate and trusted data.

SAP was the first vendor to offer translytics with its SAP HANA platform, continues to demonstrate its strong focus on translytics with its market growth and innovation. It is the first major data platform to support Intel Optane DC persistent memory, supporting real-time data anonymization, and offering the broadest multimodel and advanced analytics support. Organizations use it to support in-memory data marts, real-time analytics, operational insights, and SAP Business Warehouse, as well as custom-built apps and applications like SAP S/4HANA and SAP Business Suite.
