SAP Develops Business Analytic Engine
The appliance with software from SAP enables business users to model business scenarios and analyse data in real-time without disruption.
SAP has outlined its plans for a new combined hardware appliance and software solution that will dramatically increase the availability and speed of business information, enabling companies to make better decisions faster.
New software being developed at SAP, the SAP Business Analytic Engine, will use in-memory technology with a powerful calculation engine, combined with easy-to-use, business-centric data modeling tools and data management tools. The software will enable business users to instantaneously access, explore, model and analyse transactional, analytical and Web-based data in real-time in a single environment, without impacting the data warehouse or other systems.
"The future of computing is here and we are on the threshold of an era that will radically change how people interact with data and make decisions," said Vishal Sikka, Chief Technology Officer and Member-SAP Executive Board leading Technology and Innovation. " Imagine sitting at your desk or using your mobile device and being able to pull and analyse data instantly — and how that would improve every aspect of your work life. Moving forward, our customers will be able to develop better business simulations and plans, do real-time inventory and price optimisations, or quickly evaluate the effect of currency changes in financial systems. Using the new in-memory offerings from SAP will give customers real-time transparency into their business and help ensure that they are executing their corporate strategies as planned. The speed and agility provided by in-memory computing will change the game for our customers, allowing them become the best-run companies in their industries."
The business management solution for small businesses can be deployed on premise or in the cloud and is accessible via mobile devices.
SAP supports growth opportunities and delivers innovation to customers with the power of SAP HANA and disruptive solutions from startup partners.
New offering automates the migration process through a series of pre-configured software, implementation services, standardised content and end-user enablement.
