SAP HANA Cloud Portal developer "usefulness" assessed

    By: Mr. Adrian Bridgwater on Mar 18, 2013

    The SAP HANA Cloud Portal (formerly called the SAP NetWeaver Cloud portal) has been evaluated by analyst firm Gartner.

    The cloud- and SAP HANA platform-based portal solution was built for use on mobile devices and allows developers to build applications that leverage embedded analytics and the speed and scale of SAP HANA.

    The Gartner report, “SAP NetWeaver Cloud Portal Is a Front End for SAP Innovation,” looks at how portal strategy leaders can leverage the on-demand portal to help ensure a unified strategy and address the demands generated from cloud, mobile and information trends.

    “We believe this report underscores our dedication to providing multifaceted solutions to customers that are facing new challenges,” said Amit Sinha, head of Marketing, Database & Technology Innovation, SAP.

    “With our platform-as-a-service offering, we can now quickly add new capabilities and features, to help companies drive innovation and engage with employees, partners and customers, introducing support as demand arises with the secure, scalable robust SAP HANA Cloud Portal.”

    It is designed for mobile consumption using HTML5 with gesture support and dynamic adaption to a range of devices, allowing customers to connect applications, reports and unstructured content from various SAP and non-SAP sources. 

    “Organizations seem to be on a perpetual quest for portal offerings that can serve three broad constituencies: IT organizations, business leaders and end users,” Gartner Research Director Jim Murphy wrote in the report.

    “The perfect portal offering would serve at once as a development and delivery platform for IT; as a means to engage employees, customers and partners for business influencers; and as a flexible environment for knowledge management and collaboration for end users."

    "While most early portal products were tools for IT, organizations are under increasing pressure to provide more autonomy — albeit under the continued aegis of corporate security and governance — to business and end users.”
