Here is the Latest News about SAP: SAP has announced the release of HANA 2 platform
SAP HANA 2 platform and it will be available on 30th November for first customers, and an Express edition will be made available shortly afterwards to let customers jump-start new development projects quickly and at low cost, according to SAP, which has promised to update the software twice a year.
What SAP HANA 2 includes?
“SAP HANA 2 includes new enhancements like cloud micro services, data warehousing, support for agile IT development that make the platform available for any users who want to take advantage of the HANA in-memory technology” said Ken Tsai, SAP vice president and head of cloud platform and data management product marketing.
“One of the main ways that users can take advantage of HANA 2 in more digestible bits is through cloud microservices that are available via subscription through SAP hybris as a service (referred to as YaaS). These can allow developers to embed HANA-driven insights into applications” he added.
“SAP pioneered in-memory computing with the launch of SAP HANA in 2010 and throughout our journey we have driven breakthrough innovation on a highly stable core data platform for our customers,” said Bernd Leukert, member of the executive board, Products and Innovation, SAP SE. “The release of SAP HANA 2 marks a milestone in the industry, as it represents the next generation of SAP HANA that will propel customers toward a successful and prosperous digital future.”
According to SAP, there are also cloud microservices for text data analysis like entity extraction, fact extraction, and linguistic analysis that can be embedded into applications to process and analyze unstructured text in documents.
Data warehousing is another area where HANA 2 has been enhanced to appeal to non-SAP users as well as SAP users, according to Ken Tsai.
As Our Surya HANA Academy Blog writing latest developments about SAP you might be aware that SAP recently announced BW/4HANA, which is the packaged data warehousing offering on the BW side, and the application development tools were very harmonized with the HANA core technology. Here SAP HANA 2 extends that vision further because it has added a sophisticated SQL analyzer, workflow analyzer and workflow management. So a customer who doesn’t want to use BW can freely choose the full native HANA capabilities to build custom data warehousing.
New Key features and enhancements:
Database management – IT organizations will be able to provide business continuity with enhanced high availability, security, work load management and administration enhancements. For example, the new active/active read-enabled option enables IT organizations to leverage secondary systems – previously used only for system replication – to off-load read-intensive workloads for improved operations.
Data management – Businesses are expected to leverage data, regardless of where it resides, with enhancements to enterprise modeling, data integration, data quality and tiered storage. A new edition of the SAP Enterprise Architecture Designer Web application that works with and is powered by SAP HANA allows IT organizations to manage complex information architectures and visualize the potential impact of new technologies before they are implemented.
Analytical intelligence – Developers are embedding rich insight into applications with enhanced analytical processing engines for text, spatial, graph and streaming data. For example, new algorithms for classification, association, time series and regression have been added to the predictive analytics library to empower data scientists to discover new patterns and incorporate machine learning into custom applications.
Application development – Developers are expected to build and deploy next-generation applications with enhanced functions for application servers, development tools and languages. For example, bring-your-own-language support provides a choice of additional third-party build packs and runtimes that can be used within SAP HANA extended application services, advanced model. Also, a new file processor API enables developers to extract text and metadata from documents to deliver deeper insights.
Text Analysis Entity Extraction, Text Analysis Fact Extraction and Text Analysis Linguistic Analysis: Use text data processing features in the cloud for application enhancement with natural language processing.
Earth Observation Analysis service (beta): Co-innovated with European Space Agency (ESA) and based on the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) EO-WCS standard, this micro service accesses satellite data from ESA and uses SAP HANA, spatial edition, to perform spatial processing in the cloud. The new service, announced today in conjunction with Munich RE, delivers historic information about vegetation, water, soil and other spectral indexes in real time.
SAP is expecting to increase innovation of insight-driven applications to deliver competitive advantage for its customers.
