What is SAP HANA?
SAP HANA merges database, data processing, and application platform capabilities in-memory. The platform offers libraries for predictive, planning, text processing, spatial, and business analytics.
This new architecture allows converged OLTP and OLAP data processing within a single in-memory column-based data store with ACID compliance, while eliminating data redundancy and latency. By serving progressive capabilities, such as predictive text analytics, spatial processing, data virtualization, on the same architecture, it further streamlines application development and processing across big data sources and structures. This makes SAP HANA the most appropriate platform for building and deploying next-generation, real-time applications and analytics.
