    By: ISUG-TECH Journal on Apr 01, 2014

    SAP has provided an overview of the main features in SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) 16 and users will notice scale, speed, simplicity and security for extreme transactional workloads as key and prominent elements of this release. ISUG-TECH provides you with a distilled overview of SAP ASE 16.

    Extreme Transaction Processing: A Business Reality
    This is the age of extreme transaction processing. The amount of information that organizations process constantly grows, and so does the volume of human and machine driven transactions that are performed.

    With 333 billion worldwide non-cash payment transactions processed in 2012 and the number of global e-commerce transactions expected to reach 34.8 billion in 2014, transaction loads are increasingly measured in millions per hour.

    Users’ response time expectations are also changing.

    Gone are the times when applications returned information in seconds; responses are now expected within milliseconds and microseconds. Google recently concluded that a 400 millisecond response time is considered too long by their average users and other researchers determined that people will visit a web site less often if it is slower than a close competitor by more than 250 milliseconds.

    Additionally, IDC forecasts that global telecom service providers will reach 30 billion of autonomously connected end points by 20204, generating exponential growth in the number of transactions and the velocity at which they are generated.

    IDC's predictions for 2014 large number of concurrent transactions and deliver record performance, economically. Its widespread adoption in transaction extreme industry sectors such as banking has delivered a wealth of experience to SAP, allowing its engineers to deliver with SAP ASE 16 unprecedented levels of speed, scalability, security and simplicity to meet the increasing demand for extreme data transaction processing.

    SAP ASE 16 delivers increased scalability and speed with extensive optimization in its transaction concurrency management, query plan execution, data compression and utilization of computing resources in large SMP servers. Internal OLTP benchmarks executed on an 80 core box, show linear scalability with transaction throughputs exceeding one million transactions per minute.
