In order to obtain that information, they engage in data modeling and “what if” scenarios, the answers of which give them a competitive edge in business. The biggest concern to-date, is that the data modeling and “what if” scenarios usually take days to process. SAP HANA in-memory technology allows CIO’s to obtain answers to these complex issues in microseconds instead of the typical wait of days.
Who are the only server platform vendors certified to sell SAP HANA?
What are the benefits to users of SAP HANA?
Processes all transactions in memory instead of I/O to disk
Processes millions of lines of data in microseconds
All processing done outside of normal data processing
Reduction of hardware and maintenance costs since SAP HANA is self contained in one appliance
So is SAP HANA “in Memory” technology disruptive? Absolutely. Watch Rajiv Thomas’s Video Cisco and SAP HANA about HANA
