Ten Reasons why SAP HANA can transform your business

Ten Reasons why SAP HANA can transform your business

SAP High-performance Analytic Appliance (HANA) is a data warehouse appliance for processing high volumes of operational and Transactional data in real-time.  SAP HANA uses in-memory analytics, an approach that queries data stored in random access memory (RAM) instead of on hard disk or flash storage.

The engine of the real-time enterprise, SAP HANA provides a foundation on which to build a new generation of applications.
