BANGALORE, INDIA: SAP AG unveiled new in-memory SAP HANA platform with new features, including service pack 6 (SP6).

“With SAP HANA, we have embarked on a journey to continuously re-think and transform how we access, interact with and analyze data to answer any question of any complexity in real-time,” said Dr. Vishal Sikka, member of the Executive Board of SAP AG, Technology & Innovation. “Breaking down the unnecessary divide between OLTP and OLAP has only been the beginning. We will continue to re-invent real-time experiences by bringing the power of SAP HANA to more data varieties, sources and deployment options to enable enterprises to run as fast as our imaginations.”

Smarter data access for Hadoop and other heterogeneous data sources

SAP HANA smart data access is a data virtualization technology in SAP HANA that enables dynamic data queries across heterogeneous relational and non-relational database systems such as Hadoop, SAP Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (SAP Sybase ASE), SAP Sybase IQ and other third-party data warehouses.

SAP HANA smart data access helps customers build real-time Big Data applications with query access to data across their business networks while minimizing unnecessary data transfers and data redundancy, says a release.

Spatial Data Processing

SAP introduced new spatial data processing capabilities into its HANA platform to combine geospatial data with business data. Customers and ISVs will be able to process combinations of spatial, predictive and text analysis results within one SQL to simplify the development of location-based solutions.

Other features:

· Extended natural language processing: Text mining capabilities in SAP HANA will be enhanced to support additional key languages for sentiment and core entity extraction, including Simplified Chinese for multi-lingual ‘voice-of-the-customer’ analysis.

· Predictive application development: Application function modeler in SAP HANA studio will enable model-driven access to native functions and predictive algorithms helping to enable rapid development.

· Integrated data provisioning and modeling: Unified data model and provisioning workbench for development and data acquisition simplicity in SAP HANA studio.

· Enhanced data services: Native extract, transform, load (ETL) solution with increased performance and new guided advisor to profile and assess the quality of incoming data.

· Enhanced disaster recovery feature: Introduction of new asynchronous and asymmetrical long-distance remote data center failover capabilities.

· Embedded interactive education: Pre-package referenced business application, data models, sample code, example data and data generators for interactive learning.

· Open hardware architecture for tailored data centre Integration: SAP plans to introduce an initiative to drive the availability and the openness of SAP HANA platform. This aims to include tailored data centre integration to provide customers the choice to integrate SAP HANA platform with customers’ existing network storage infrastructure.
