SAP Sapphire 2011 Recap: HANA, Business Intelligence and Mobile Apps

Plattling, June 15, 2011

It’s a wrap! The first leg of the SAP Sapphire 2011 world tour has already come to an end yesterday at Orlando, Florida. The glimmering day one, day two and day three tackled mostly about SAP’s future, key opportunities for them, gateway technology, partners and for customers, mobile and social enterprise, cloud services and simplifying IT environment.  The third and last day was more about potential products and innovations that highlighted features of one of SAP’s secret weapon, HANA—an in-computing memory appliance described as flexible, multipurpose and data-source agnostic.  What it does is moves critical data into servers to make it instantaneously accessible for processing purposes.

Executive board member of Technology and Innovation at SAP, Vishal Sikka told attendees how important HANA is for SAP. He also presented the mounting interest on in-memory technology from around the globe and named companies like Colgate-Palmolive, Nestle and Nomura Research Institute that use business analytics to drive sales. He continued saying, “HANA is the foundation of our renewal, the technology at the root of our innovation. HANA is enabling a once-in-a-generation kind of transformation and has revolutionized the way we manage data with a 20 times performance improvement over traditional databases.”

SAP Sapphire 2011 was a huge success and a great kickoff for the world tour—with all the unparalleled insights by industry leaders, new tie-ups and opportunities to drive business.
