SAP Enhances Vora and Unveils New Data Hub Solution

SAP is making improvements to the SAP Vora solution that will simplify deployment on a public cloud and increase flexibility when migrating between cloud, on-premise, and hybrid deployment models.

Additionally, the live customer cloud service on SAP Data Network can now use the distributed computing capabilities SAP Vora offers to efficiently process large data volumes and reveal actionable business insights in near real time.

SAP Vora provides customers with the flexibility to choose among cloud, on-premise and hybrid deployment models, and they can migrate between these options easily and with minimal disruption.

SAP Vora is planned to support Azure Data Lake, hosted in Microsoft’s public cloud Azure.

SAP Vora  can load and distribute data files stored in Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service). Other key features introduced in this latest release are an enhanced monitoring framework, support for Apache Spark2.x and optimizations for connectivity with the SAP HANA platform.

The live customer cloud service on SAP Data Network combines expertise in Big Data, machine learning and analytics to deliver customers an end-to-end portfolio for data monetization as a ready-to-consume cloud service.

Customers who store data in the cloud as well as customers with hybrid data storage will benefit from this update, according to Karen Sun, director, Product Marketing and Adoption Marketing at SAP.

“For customers who use Vora, it will be much easier for them to manage the whole big data processing system,” Sun said. “No matter where big data is stored, on premise or in the cloud, those who are not advanced programmers are able to use SQL code to process big data.”

Additionally, SAP is releasing the SAP Data Hub solution to enable businesses to overcome the complexity of their data systems and capitalize on the vast amounts of data they collect from a growing variety of sources.

SAP Data Hub creates value across the diverse data landscape through data integration, data orchestration and data governance, as well as by creating powerful data pipelines that can accelerate positive business results.

 “The data hub is really a pipeline or data landscape management solution. It’s for customers who want to connect multiple data sources,” Sun said.
