SAP has released service pack 10 (SPS10) for the SAP HANA platform.
Main features of service pack 10 for the SAP HANA platform will assist customers to connect with the Internet of Things (IoT) at enterprise scale, manage Big Data more effectively, extend availability of data across the enterprise and develop new applications.
SAP made the announcement at SAPinsider HANA 2015 on June 16-18 in Nice, France.
Quentin Clark, chief technology officer of SAP, said: “The new capabilities of SAP HANA ensure data center-readiness, synchronization data to any remote system, extend high availability and disaster recovery of enterprise data and perform advanced analytics. We are readying our customers for the inevitable digitization of our entire economy.”
The remote data synchronization feature of SAP HANA enables organizations to synchronize data between the enterprise and remote locations at the edge of the network.
Developers can now build IoT and data-intensive mobile apps that leverage SAP HANA remote data synchronization between the enterprise and remote locations via the SAP SQL Anywhere suite – an embeddable database technology with more than 12 million licenses.
Enterprise can capture and access data and fed back into SAP HANA from remote workplaces such as retail stores and restaurants. Customers can collect and analyze IoT data for performing critical tasks at distant locations including predictive maintenance on ships, pumping stations and in mines with low bandwidth or intermittent connections or even while offline.
Businesses can utilize Big Data using expanded smart data integration capabilities of SAP HANA to the latest Hadoop distributions from Cloudera and Hortonworks.
New features for SAP HANA include faster data transfer with Spark SQL and a single user interface (UI) for SAP HANA and Hadoop cluster administration using Apache Ambari.
SAP said features such as 1-to-n asynchronous replication, auto-host failover for dynamic tiering and incremental backups help reduce system downtime and facilitate business continuity.
Companies can leverage the NUMA (non-uniform memory access) -aware architecture of SAP HANA to support large scale systems with more than 12TB of memory to rapidly process large data sets and improve overall business performance.
SAP HANA text mining extends to the SQL syntax, making it easier for developers to build next-generation applications. The new spatial processing enhancements of SAP HANA include support multidimensional objects and spatial expressions in SAP HANA models or SQLScript.
SAP HANA currently has more than 6,400 customers, almost doubling from only one year ago. SAP HANA Cloud Platform has approximately 1,400 customers. SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA (SAP S/4HANA) has more than 370 customers in 2015 alone.
