World land speed records for an unmanned vehicle are already an impressive Mach 8.5. But that accomplishment is little match for the data processing speed of SAP HANA, SAP’s in-memory software. At processing speeds of close to 100GB per second, SAP’s latest in-memory innovations accelerate operational updates for enhanced decision making, giving companies a real competitive edge.
You may wonder just how fast that is in terms of accelerating the speed of reporting in business operations. Ian Kimbell, SAP solution evangelist, puts the power of SAP HANA into perspective by way of practical illustration: “It used to be impractical for a retail company to get real-time information on how a particular promotion was working, as the time taken to analyze millions of point of sale records took hours. With SAP HANA, information is available in seconds, allowing for optimum stock allocation and therefore higher profit.”
That’s impressive (visit Experience SAP HANA to learn more). However, the performance of the new SAP HANA technology is almost overshadowed by the ease of deploying it – especially now that SAP has introduced SAP ERP for operational reporting with SAP HANA as an SAP rapid-deployment solution. This new offering hands the keys of that Mach 1 racing machine to CIOs ready to take their businesses to a new supersonic level. It’s simple, practical, and fast.
