Develop Applications and Integrate Data with a Cloud Database

Integrate data from across your enterprise using the cloud-based data foundation for SAP Business Technology Platform

SAP HANA Cloud

What is SAP HANA Cloud?

SAP HANA Cloud is a fully managed Database as a Service (DBaaS). This builds upon the established capabilities of the SAP HANA Platform.

SAP HANA Cloud can integrate data from any source and in any form, as it is a platform for modern data and analytics applications. This can scale to meet your growing demands and provide deep integration with your on-premise and cloud systems.

SAP HANA Cloud will accelerate access to data through its real-time capabilities and produce deeper insights through the application of machine learning techniques. The resultant data can be consumed through an analytics tool of your choice.

Why Do Organisations Need SAP HANA Cloud?

  • Connect to all your data assets wherever they may be within your enterprise – on-premise or cloud, structured and unstructured
  • The required data can be virtually accessed in SAP HANA Cloud or alternatively, materialised in SAP HANA Cloud
  • Deliver new and relevant insights across datasets that are not currently being stored or processed
  • Apply Machine Learning algorithms by using the inbuilt capabilities
  • Provide real-time, impactful business insights
  • Improve the accuracy and trustworthiness of data through using the rich data cleansing capabilities
  • Secure data at source and provide the relevant data to different users and parts of the organisation – irrespective of client application
  • Designed to be the best at working with SAP applications and data
  • A simple cloud-based solution for all your data requirements

Key Product Features

Connectivity

Connect to diverse systems and data sources using the Data Provisioning Application (DPA) as a secure mechanism. The DPA supports a wide range of adapters to provide simplified access to external data sources.

Virtualisation

Data can be virtually established within SAP HANA Cloud to eliminate the need for data duplication and ensure that the data is always current. This can be adapted at any stage to physically store the data in SAP HANA Cloud. This may be required to address performance issues or to apply advanced data processing algorithms to the data

Multi-tiering

Data can be held in many different forms and this will affect the cost and performance of this data. In addition to virtual data, data can be stored in memory to maximise its responsiveness. Lower priority data can be stored on disk to reduce memory costs and finally, data can also be acquired by the accompanying Data Lake. The Data Lake provides a scalable and economical means for storing data

Performance

The use of column storage and data compression, coupled with the in-memory capabilities will provide high-speed access to data and remove any constraints that may have existed at source

Elasticity

Systems can be scaled up or down by altering the computing and storage resources. This allows organisations to flexibly meet their demands and ensure that the end-user experience is not impacted by an oversubscribed system

Spatial

Spatial data can be stored in its native form to support geospatial querying. This may include the calculation of distances, intersections and other similar queries

Graph

The Graph engine can model different types of networks and linked data. Relational data storage supports full use of the Graph engine and can be leveraged to determine relationships between data nodes and traverse the paths connecting these nodes.

Machine Learning

The inbuilt PAL and APL algorithms can be applied to datasets to produce rich insights. There are defined approaches to train, apply and maintain models to produce the optimal outcomes

Text Search

A powerful search engine can provide a search facility across tables and documents. This uses literal and fuzzy techniques to find relevant matches. The text engines can also decipher sentiment and extract entities from textual data

Data Privacy

The security subsystem allows users to define the appropriate level of security across different datasets and users. Additionally, data can be anonymised and masked to provide the desired level of data confidentiality
