Key Benefits

  • Innovate

    Support entirely new business processes, business models, and advanced analytics, such as:

    • Mobile
    • Internet of Things (IoT)
    • Real-time intelligence
  • Simplify

    SAP HANA replaces traditional databases, simplifying the software stack. Avoid data duplication by:

    • Combining transactional and analytical processing against a single copy of data.
    • Increasing speed (while reducing cost).
    • Moving to an X86 architecture.
  • Work faster and smarter

    In-memory data processing speeds up analytics and helps you make real-time, data-driven business decisions.

    • The exponential growth of big data requires solutions that can optimize analysis and help you better use the information you have.
    • Make critical decisions more quickly with an in-memory platform.

We only extend our investments when we see the benefit, and we’re continuing to see the benefit of Red Hat Enterprise Linux running on SAP HANA. We’re moving anything and everything to SAP HANA, and Red Hat is leading that digital journey.

Forrester Consulting—The Modern Data Center: Vital For Digital Transformation

This study explores how companies are managing the ongoing challenges of the modern data management center to optimize both technical and business goals in balancing the need for growth, real-time response, and efficiency. It also examines how their strategies support and enhance productivity and improve customer, employee, and partner experiences, while mastering the explosion of volume, complexity, and real-time requirements in data within the most efficient and economic cost structure possible.

One of our key challenges is to simplify—we want to reduce the number of applications and platforms in place because that ultimately reduces cost. Removal of complexity is a key driver.
