Sap High Performance Analytic Appliance (SAP HANA)

SAP SOLUTION BRIEFSAP High Performance SAP HIGH PERFORMANCE ANALYTICAnalytic Appliance APPLIANCE (SAP HANA) THE NEXT WAVE OF SAP’S IN-MEMORY COMPUTING TECHNOLOGYSAP HANA is a flexible, multi- Powerful Analytic Appliance SAP HANA Benefitspurpose, data-source-agonistic, for Real Time Insight SAP HANA provides a multi-purpose,in-memory appliance that SAP® HANA enables organizations to in-memory appliance, allowingcombines SAP software analyze their business operations, using organizations to gain instant insight into huge volumes of detailed information, business operations, so they cancomponents optimized on as business happens. Organizations can analyze all the data available and quicklyhardware provided, and instantly explore and analyze all of their react to rapidly changing business transactional and analytical data in conditions. SAP HANA enablesdelivered, by SAP’s leading real-time from virtually any data source. organizations to make better decisions,hardware partners. Operational data is captured in-memory, faster, by providing immediate access to as it occurs, and flexible views expose relevant information – and requiring far analytic information at the speed of less reliance on IT to gain the insight thought. External data can be easily needed. added to analytic models – to incorporate data from across the entire SAP HANA provides a flexible, cost- organization. effective, real-time approach for managing large data volumes, allowing Business Challenges organizations to dramatically reduce hardware and maintenance costs Information is the lifeblood of business associated with running multiple data today. Organizations demand insight warehouses, operational and analytical into business operations as they systems. SAP HANA will form the happen. But the volume of operational technology foundation for new, data available for business insight often innovative applications based on exceeds the amount of data that in-memory technology, thus enabling traditional disk-based systems can better performing business applications process within a reasonable time. As a such as planning, forecasting, result, organizations are forced to operational performance and simulation reduce the data from operational solutions. The first business application applications into analytic models for running on SAP HANA is SAP even the most basic analyses. That BusinessObjects Strategic Workforce means that operational applications are Planning, version for in-memory disconnected from analytic computing, a solution developed by environments, resulting in significant lag SAP that dramatically benefits from the time between gathering data and the high performance and real-time access insight into that data. to large volumes of transactional information. Organizations also want to employ flexible analytic models when working SAP HANA Capabilities with information to uncover trends and patterns, or improve planning, SAP HANA provides direct access to forecasting and financial close operational data without affecting the processes. In traditional analytics, high performance of SAP ERP and other data volumes require making operational systems. Organizations can assumptions during modeling to reduce synchronize key transactional tables, in the data set to a manageable size. But near real-time, into memory; making simplified models don’t accurately these tables easily accessible for reflect the multifaceted nature of analysis and lookup. Once data is operational data, often resulting in available in-memory, departments can sub-optimal forecasting, planning or instantly look up individual line items trend analyses – items all critical to from massive lists like booking monitoring and reacting to business documents, sales leads or service performance.

This streamlined modelingworkflow supports direct access models for detailed line items, as well as analyticmodels for more complex analytic processing.SAP HANA provides a streamlined workflow from idea to analysis. The workflowcovers the entire process, starting from the identification of relevant operationaldata (turning raw data into relevant information), to the generation of semanticallygrouped information in models, and finally the publishing of the completed models.The key difference of SAP HANA from traditional analytic models is the absenceof any materialization – all models are purely virtual, and calculate results based onthe underlying detailed operational data. The absence of materializations makesmodel changes very easy.SAP HANA can access any data. In scenarios where organizations requireoperational data from non-SAP applications or would like to expand on existinganalytic models, any source of data can be used as a foundation in SAP HANA.Using the SAP BusinessObjects Data Services component, non-SAP operationaldata can be loaded in-memory into SAP HANA, enabling businesses to generate acomplete picture for a specific business situation via a very lean process.SAP HANA adds an easy-to-use modeling experience to further increase theautonomy of business users. Using semantically enriched views that turn rawoperational data into understandable relevant information, business users canautonomously create new analytic models in a web-based modeling environment.The full business intelligence capabilities of SAP BusinessObjects can directlyleverage SAP HANA’s in-memory data, giving business users a complete range ofinsight and analysis capabilities for all high performance applications. However, ifusers prefer to employ Excel – or other tools and applications – for insight andanalysis, they can connect to SAP HANA via standard interfaces such as MDX orSQL.SAP HANA provides standard interfaces to existing applications, operationalsystems or other business applications. This means that SAP HANA will notdisrupt existing landscapes by connecting to existing data sources, and easilyleverages investments in existing BI clients.
