Hybrid Analytics with SAP Analytics Cloud

In the age of Digital Disruption, enterprises are moving their data and process in the cloud to enhance their digital maturity leading to better business agility. Many such enterprises over the years have made a humungous investment in their on-premise IT infrastructure. Hybrid Cloud strategy is the most preferred by the organizations considering the fact that their previous investments can be combined with new innovative cloud solutions and services.

With the Cloud technology, the services models such as PaaS, IaaS and SaaS can be benefitted. With Hybrid cloud strategy these service models can used in orchestration with the previous on-premise investments.

PaaS (Platform as a Service) – PaaS is a cloud computing model that provides a readily optimized platform required for application development, that allows users to focus on creating and running applications rather than constructing and maintaining the underlying infrastructure and services

IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) – IaaS is the cloud-service model that provides virtualized infrastructure components and services such as physical computing resources, location, data partitioning, scaling, security, backup etc. traditionally present in an on-premises datacenters such as including servers, storage and networking hardware as a service without having to buy, manage and support the underlying infrastructure.

SaaS (Software as a Service) – SaaS is a delivery model which allows rapid deployment of a centrally hosted and licensed-solution based on a subscription, which can be referred to as “on-demand application”. This provides a higher resource and pricing flexibility.

With the significant progression in adoption of Hybrid Cloud infrastructure by the enterprises which are gearing towards their digital disruption, there is huge demand for data-insights from diversified systems of this hybrid ecosystem. A study conducted by Forrester suggests, 82% of companies agree hybrid cloud is a critical next step in their analytics/BI.

Analysing and deriving meaningful insights on the content accessed and blended from various cloud sources and on-premise sources across the enterprise can be termed as Hybrid Analytics. Deriving the insights from the blended data of on-premise system and cloud solutions can be highly beneficial.
