SAP HANA Receives Variety of New Cloud Updates

SAP is introducing new SAP HANA Cloud services, aiming to bring the power and performance of the SAP HANA database to the cloud.

SAP HANA Cloud Services and SAP Cloud Platform aim to provide customers access to all SAP and third-party application data, reduce data duplication and offer a single point for security and governance.

As a result, decision-makers have live, comprehensive and complete data access as well as confidence that their data is safe and secure.

Decision-makers can also easily apply advanced analytics, machine learning and other techniques to business processes to uncover new opportunities.

New products, services and initiatives that are planned to take advantage of SAP HANA Cloud Services include the SAP Data Warehouse Cloud and a strengthened partnership between SAP and OpenText.

In addition to more than 100 intelligent scenarios, SAP plans to embed further updates of SAP Leonardo technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT) and augmented analytics into business processes to provide real-time intelligence and insights.

SAP also unveiled 15 SAP Guided Outcomes, which are packages that bring together multiple SAP products that are frequently used together to deliver compelling business value.

In the first wave, SAP addresses five categories of business outcomes including cost optimization, revenue growth, customer experience, total workforce management and product and service excellence.

Many of the packages address cross-industry issues, while some are designed for specific industries including discrete, financial services, consumer and services. SAP Guided Outcomes have undergone technical validation and include best practice recommendations for deploying each solution.

To help customers embed exactly the level of intelligent capabilities their business needs, SAP has designed intelligent technology packages including machine learning, natural language understanding or advanced analytics capabilities.
