Development in the SAP HANA Database


SAP HANA Key Features


In-Memory Technology

SAP HANA’s in-memory technology enables extremely fast data processing, allowing companies to create reports and analyses in real time and optimize decision-making processes.



SAP HANA is available both on-premise and in the cloud and provides a broad set of standard interfaces. This allows a seamless integration with existing SAP systems and third-party applications, providing businesses with flexibility in implementation and management.



The platform enables the development of advanced applications. For example, SAP HANA has the capabilities for geospatial data processing, text analytics and graph processing.
