Seamless integration of various business apps on a single platform seems to have become the single most priority in business development. SAP High Performance Analytic Appliance is an open application, which provides a database platform for all business apps on the cloud. That is why SAP HANA makes it easy to process huge volumes of data quickly. HANA has a computing engine which allows it to process data from the RAM. Therefore, the processing time with HANA is almost instantaneous and customer data analysis can be done in real time.

SAP HANA can process data from varied data sources which include SAP as well as non-SAP databases. Depending on the data source, three styles of data replication can be used. The data which is processed is directly stored in the memory, making it easily accessible for anyone using this platform.

How is SAP HANA changing the way businesses are run?

As more and more companies are changing the way they deal with organizational data, the need for processing large databases in real time is increasing. SAP HANA has made it possible to analyze different types of data from various different sources. The process of data analysis is complex because not only does it require interaction within the data, but also needs to be processed without any preparation, i.e. in real time. These conditions are effectively met by SAP HANA.

The secret behind the prowess of SAP HANA as a database management app, is its ability to simultaneously perform analytical as well as transactional processes – the amalgamation of both aspects of data processing. The data does not need to be separately loaded from the transactional database and can be analyzed live, as it is processed.

Since SAP HANA is an in-memory application, other associated functions such as intensive data operation and complex calculation is performed in the database only. This not only simplifies the entire process but also considerably reduces effort. It also optimizes productivity as human effort is greatly reduced. All this takes place at an incomparable speed.

SAP HANA is one of the most exciting technological developments in the enterprise, in recent times. It is proving to be a game changer in the world of data processing. With powerful speed effecting optimization of operations, SAP HANA has revolutionized the world of data management with its unique hybrid composition.
