Really real-time entrepreneurship with the SAP HANA platform
Your organization is facing the choice, or has already made it, to switch to SAP HANA. But what is the best solution and how it can be designed? Different aspects lead to the right answer in your situation.
What is SAP HANA
SAP HANA (High Performance ANalytic Appliance) is SAP’s strategic real-time data platform for existing and all new versions of SAP applications. HANA offers all the benefits of a fast, modern, in-memory database for integrated and real-time transactional or analytical solutions. In addition to the introduction of the HANA platform, various new SAP applications (such as S4 and BW for HANA) are available. SAP has announced that any future application will only run on HANA to enable business innovation. It should be kept in mind that support for the non-HANA databases for SAP will be stopped in 2027. The introduction of SAP HANA does require a suitable infrastructure that supports the capabilities of that platform.
Areas of application for real-time business
There are roughly two areas using a HANA platform:
- SAP HANA is a flexible, data source independent, scalable platform that makes it possible to easily analyze large amounts of data in real time. A multi-node structure with standard building blocks is the basis of the scale-out solution, so that scalability and availability can easily be achieved.
- SAP HANA Business Suite for HANA provides a set of SAP applications with an excellent performance, based on the usage of a HANA data platform. The HANA appliance solution consists of a certified pre-defined combination of hardware and software.
Platform solutions and 24/7 Managed Services
The introduction of HANA offers more than important benefits, provided you have an infrastructure that is not limited in how it can be used. The use of HANA requires a fundamental review of the infrastructure, especially when it comes to the server itself. To remove the consequences for the performance of permanent storage, the entire database remains in memory. HANA therefore requires a much higher amount of memory and (from a performance perspective) a derived processor capacity. That is why SAP has published a list of certified and supported HANA configurations. To determine a well-measured solution, there are a few specific characteristics.
