An increasingly connected world is placing new demands on all business types – this is posing a myriad of new questions: what data do I need to collect; what is relevant; how should I interpret the information and learn from it; how do I turn insight into action; what should be automated and how; and how do I continuously adapt to manage risk or take advantage of new opportunities?
 
The answer for SAP is SAP Cloud Platform – an agility layer that allows businesses to collect, manage, analyse and leverage information of all types, to extend and connect to business systems, and to innovate new edge scenarios to allow the business to continuously adapt and advance. SAP is making a significant investment and push with SAP Cloud Platform and this provides a tremendous opportunity for our…

You might be wondering, what’s SAP Cloud Platform? Is it another SAP platform but cloud based? What happened to SAP HANA Cloud Platform? Are they one and the same? The answer is simple, SAP HANA Cloud Platform is now SAP Cloud Platform—and for good reason (or I should say three reasons?). While it may be tempting to think we marketers are “at it again” with name changes, let me tell you why this is a legitimate rebranding exercise.
Reason #1 – SAP HANA all the time!
At the airports, on television, you see it everywhere—SAP HANA has become a strong brand that has received wide-spread recognition in the business and technology world. Yes, as a marketer for SAP Cloud Platform, we often felt like the 3rd child in a family of 6 kids, overshadowed by our older siblings (SAP S/4 HANA, SAP HANA, and so on), and vying for more attention.
But seriously, SAP Cloud Platform has outgrown the name with “HANA” in it because it isn’t just about in-memory database…

Mercy, the 5th largest Catholic health care system in the U.S., is dedicating efforts to ensure that situations similar to my sister’s never happen.  Mercy recognized the opportunity to improve the quality of care and costs by employing standardization, noting that a large portion of the inefficiency in healthcare can be contributed to failures in care delivery, care coordination, and overtreatment.

This past week, I joined an SAP developer event where I had a peek at the latest innovations and cool demos powered by SAP HANA.  In walking through these sessions, I could actually appreciate how SAP HANA is positioned as the data foundation for all kind of applications – SAP applications like SAP S/4HANA and other non-SAP applications.   This experience made me reflect on the reasons SAP HANA enjoys such a broad applicability that makes it ideal for a wide spectrum of use cases. What are SAP HANA’s essential characteristics that make this possible?
First, open standard support is critical to support custom and third-party applications. SAP HANA is the open platform that implements an ACID-compliant relational database that offers standard interfaces to access data, such as ODBC/JDBC and standard web service calls.  In this way, developers and administrators can leverage their existing SQL knowledge and become productive faster.
Another key factor that makes HANA so…
