By Matt Potts

More and more SAP customers are now starting to put HANA on their BI and analytics roadmap in light of the recent trends in needing to:

  • turn big data into smart insightful information
  • the need to drive the next best action
  • take advantage of in-memory computing with it becoming a serious and de-facto choice in IT landscapes

Many companies are starting to build business cases or proof of values for HANA and one of the decisions they face is how HANA fits in with their existing BI architecture. This is a critical decision for business as they look to ensure they invest correctly for their future BI landscape to increase performance, reduce TCO and offer an innovate ‘future ready’ BI platform to drive business insights from their data.
