He spoke during the SAP Executive Keynote at SAP TechEd && d-code, explaining how SAP HANA can put together structured, unstructured, event, geospatial and network data, and then analyze it in real time.
“That’s a dramatic simplification because all of a sudden you can handle all these types of data as if they were in just a simple relational database,” Goerke said. “That’s the big innovation.”
