SAP HANA is promoted to such an extent that the businesses today cannot avoid it when it comes to in-memory databases. It’s nice to have, but the implementation needs some hard decisions.
Is SAP HANA is still a choice to make? Is there any advantage to the business? It costs a lot, why should businesses than go for it? Can this become a competitive advantage? These are those questions which will arise when any business want to migrate to S/4 HANA.
Enterprises are using SAP Hana for in-memory data marts and SAP Business Warehouse implementations that integrate with other data warehouses
Today, SAP Hana can be used in a wide range of capabilities and use cases, and it is fair to say that SAP is betting its future on the success of its new flagship technology. Of course, there are a number of other in-memory products available in the market, such as those from Oracle, IBM, Microsoft, Pivotal and Teradata, and analytics appliances as well as integration middleware or cloud services.
There is lot of confusion and gigs on the understanding of Business Intelligence and Business Analytics. Aren’t they the same thing or is there is any difference between them.
There is lot of opinion thrown around between these terms and it is easy to get lost in the whirlwind. It also demonstrates that Business intelligence can mean different terms to different people depending on their business focus and their perspective.
