SAP HANA has radically changed the way databases operate and make systems dramatically faster.
There are currently 7 different certified HANA hardware vendors with 13 different products.
Some boxes can be used as single nodes with others are intended for scale-out solutions for large multi-node systems
The Hardware – IBM Example
Applications developed by SAP
Planning & consolidation
Customer revenue performance mgmt
Predictive segmentation & targeting
Trade promotion management
Merchandise & assortment planning
Sales & operations planning (SOP)
Demand signal repository
Dynamic cash management
Strategic workforce planning
Smart meter analytics (power companies)
and much more…
This provides much tighter integration with the source system (less data latency) and much faster query response time for high-volume analysis
Dashboards can be built using the SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards tool that takes advantage of the sub-second speed of HANA.
It is all about getting fast performance when accessing high volumes of data
Dashboards can also be highly formatted and static with little user interaction

In this dashboard, the data is merged with Google maps and external news feeds. This makes the dashboard much more interactive and interesting.
BI Workspaces allows you to link many SAP BI tools in the same area, without the need to jump between them.
In this workspace, we have 6 Objects with 4 different technologies.

With Predictive modeling and data visualization you can build sophisticated models on HANA. You can even use the R-statistical library
Big-Data is only get more prominent. – can computers keep up?
Users will have on-demand access to all movies, songs, information in sub-second speed
