SAP HANA is an application that uses in-memory database technology that allows the processing of massive amounts of real-time data in a short time. The in-memory computing engine allows HANA to process data stored in RAM as opposed to reading it from a disk. This allows the application to provide instantaneous results from customer transactions and data analyses.
HANA stands for high-performance analytic appliance.
SAP HANA supports various use cases for real-time analytics. Some examples include:
- Monitoring and optimization of telecommunications network
- Supply chain and retail optimization
- Fraud detection and security
