Big Data and Analytics Solutions
The growth of data is pushing organizations to go digital. Doing so inspires better decisions, identifies fresh insights, and generates competitive advantage – but it happens in real time. For this reason, SAP HANA, a high performance, in-memory database, is ideal for big data and analytics.
Running powerful HANA applications like BW, HANA Vora, and Predictive Analytics, SAP customers combine traditional business data with massive amounts of data from new and untappedsources such as mobile devices and sensors. But powerful tools require powerful infrastructure and enhanced connectivity.
SAP and Cisco have partnered to define the first reference architecture optimized for the speed and volume of big data and analytics on SAP HANA. Based on Cisco UCS and ACI, our highly scalable architecture includes computing, storage, connectivity, and unified management capabilities. It efficiently and cost effectively optimizes the benefits of SAP HANA-based big data solutions.
