Overall Satisfaction with SAP HANA

We have been using SAP HANA Cloud as a real-time database for our weather stations located across the country. With its hybrid database architecture, our application can read and write data at an unmatched speed. It also gives us in-memory compression technology saving up to 10 times in storage space. The collected data can be used for modeling and analyzing within the SAP HANA Cloud. It provides an integrated data lake for storing and retrieving large sets of data. SAP HANA Cloud is a fast, future-ready, easy, and economical cloud database, best suited for delivering enterprise-level applications.
  • Real-time hybrid database for both transactional and analytical processing
  • In memory compression saving up to 10 times storage space
  • Integrated data lake
  • Integrated machine learning and reporting tools
  • SAPA HANA is very costly to set up on-premise, in the range of 50K USD for a lifetime license, I believe
  • Not suitable for small business applications where real-time data is not required
  • Harder to learn and integrate with existing systems
  • SAP HANA has made it easy to process large sets of data in an unmatched speed
  • Faster applications has won us more customers and users
  • We are able to use machine learning algorithms in the data sets to discover valuable insights
Our organization has been using SAP HANA for processing and analyzing weather data provided by various stations across the country in real-time. The large amount of data sent by the sensors is processed and stored in real-time. This has made our application more accurate, faster, and more reliable than any other weather application.
Multiple data types are required and generated in various stages of the application lifecycle. In our weather application, the data received is in JSON format. That data is then parsed into strings, numbers, and booleans to generate graphs and reports. The support for various data types has made SAP HANA suitable for any kind of project or industry.
SAP HANA provides a hybrid database that can be accessed for both transactional and analytical processes without having to make its copies. This has increased the security and reliability of our database.
Because SAP HANA is a fast, modern, and reliable hybrid database with cloud and machine learning abilities.
