SAP HANA – The Business Data Platform

SAP HANA® is a business data platform which converges transactions and analytics on a single in-memory platform. It uses native predictive and machine learning algorithms to offer live data-driven insights, giving users a full overview of their situational context to make decisions in real-time.

  • Enterprise Search – This is a best-in-class search function for users to search any data in the system (even text/ remark fields!) without having to open any transaction screens.
  • Intelligent Inventory Forecast – Interact with built-in statistical forecast algorithms to analyse inventory levels and optimise your demand according to observable trends or seasonal factors.
