SAP’s data warehouse strategy focuses on real-time with SAP Hana

SAP Hana is a distributed multitenant in-memory columnar massively parallel processing (MPP) database engine and application development platform often used for operational, analytical, and advanced analytical workloads. Enterprises are using SAP Hana for in-memory data marts and SAP BW implementations that integrate with other data warehouses, including SAP IQ. SAP’s key differentiators include its shared-nothing, distributed in-memory data platform for real-time analytics, optimized data streaming and query processing, integrated data services layer, advanced compression, and security. For enterprises that want to leverage EDW on a cloud platform, both SAP Hana and SAP IQ are available on cloud platforms, including AWS, although most cloud deployments Forrester has seen remain small to midsize. In addition, Hana Enterprise Cloud (HEC), SAP’s private managed cloud offering, is a viable platform for organizations looking for a dedicated cloud platform. Although SAP has not been aggressive with Hadoop, recent announcements of its launch of SAP Hana Vora, a new in-memory query engine that extends the Apache Spark execution framework to provide enriched interactive analytics on Hadoop, will benefit enterprises across various vertical industries.
