SAP aims to simplify innovation with update to HANA in-memory database

PCWorld

Since introducing HANA in 2010, SAP has been releasing updates twice a year, providing customers with new capabilities but also pushing them to keep their software current to benefit from continuing support. But for businesses that just want to get off the update treadmill, SAP will provide long-term support through May 2019 for the version released back in May, HANA Support Package Stack (SPS) 12, she said. When the time comes to upgrade, apps that run on SPS 12 should run on HANA 2 with no interruption, and companies that do choose to upgrade can look forward to a host of new features, Goodell said. One that will please the beancounters in more ways than one is a new way to offload occasional read-intensive workloads to business continuity systems usually only used for replication.

Expanded partnerships with big cloud providers Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS) were among the announcements at Sapphire Now in Orlando, Fla. SAP said it will deliver broader support for SAP HANA on Microsoft Azure to enable big data apps to run while still being protected by enterprise-level security and compliance. SAP said that Amazon's new instances, called X1, are available for SAP S/4 HANA, SAP Business Suite on HANA, and SAP Business Warehouse on HANA. Dell and SAP are also collaborating on an IoT effort, including an IoT client for SAP HANA and transaction availability for remote suites working in connection with Dell Edge Gateways for industries such as oil and gas, and retail. Finally this week, AtScale, a company that provides a self-service BI platform that works with Hadoop data, has secured a B-round of funding that brings its total funding to date to 20 million.

SAPPHIRE 2016: SAP feels your pain, 'storms ahead' on new apps, consumer insights

ZDNet

MyPOV: The SAP ecosystem wants APIs largely to gain access to data in SAP systems and external systems in order to create new apps and services, executive board member Bernd Leukert told me during a Q&A session. The two big categories are SAP BusinessObjects Cloud (formerly SAP Cloud for Analytics) and SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise for everything BI/analytics that runs on premises. The recently acquired Roambi mobile analytics app portfolio is now SAP BusinessObjects Roambi, and it's included with BusinessObjects Cloud and offered with BusinessObjects Enterprise as a low-cost option. The SAP Digital Consumer Insight Service announced at SAPPHIRE offers the equivalent of these measures for the physical world.
