SAP launches real-time analytics appliance

LAS VEGAS — Business software vendor SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) used the Las Vegas stop of its TechEd conference to outline a future technology development focused founded on three core pillars: clout computing, mobility and in-memory analytics.

There were also a number of more specific announcements, including the availability of version 7.3 of SAP’s NetWeaver platform and the planned late-November availability of HANA, SAP’s analytics appliance that users will be able to plug into their existing backends to get the power of SAP’s in-memory analytics technology without necessarily upgrading their infrastructure to the latest rev of SAP software.

SAP executive board member Vishal Sikka told attendees that SAP is committed to allowing customers to adopt incremental innovation and new functionality in a way that is non-disruptive to their core architecture and business processes, and allows them to upgrade at their own pace.

CDN sat down with Sing Mecker, senior vice-president of SAP’s global ecosystem and partner group, to discuss SAP’s technology focus and how the vendor’s systems integrator and reseller partners should be positioning to leverage the coming opportunities.
