SAP announces the addition of further cloud capabilities to HANA 9 at its TechEd event in Berlin-- specifically the so-called "s-innovations," a means to simplify the use of public (SaaS), managed and on-premises clouds.
“We are now redefining the value of enterprise software with the simplicity of SAP Cloud powered by SAP HANA," the company claims. "The powerful combination of the SAP HANA innovation platform, our new user experience and SAP’s global cloud will allow companies across the globe to run simple and derive new business value in the digital era.”
As SAP puts it, s-innovations reduce the costs and resources an enterprise or cloud provider needs to allocate to the HANA platform. Such capabilities including support for multiple databases and resource planning services running on a single platform, dynamic tiering and integrated data streaming.
Also announced by SAP at TechEd is a trio of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions-- the Predictive Maintenance and Service solution, Connected Logistics software and the Manufacturing Execution application. All leverage on the HANA Cloud Platform to include predictive analytics, more mobile support and higher business process efficiency.
