SAP HANA 101 – What it is and Why it is Getting all the Attention – Michael Eacrett (1 Hour Lecture)
SAP HANA has been on the market for close to 3 years now and has transformed the way many companies do business today by transforming the IT landscape underpinning applications. SAP HANA has evolved from a high-performance in-memory database for analytics to a modern, real-time in-memory data platform optimized for both transactional and analytical processing. In addition SAP HANA combines many previously independent processing engines like predictive, spatial, data virtualization, Text Analysis and Mining, search and application servers into a single application platform dramatically simplifying the IT landscape. Come to this comprehensive technical session to learn the basics of SAP HANA including the key capability features, consumption use cases, architecture and tools for system administrators, DBAs, architects, security administrators and developers.
SAP HANA as a Platform for Application Development – Ron Silberstein (1 Hour Lecture)
