WALLDORF — SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced the launch of the SAP HANA Big Data Intelligence rapid-deployment solution to simplify and accelerate Big Data initiatives for business.

SAP Rapid Deployment solutions simplify the implementation of SAP solutions in the cloud, on-premise or in hybrid landscapes with predictable business outcomes at lower cost. They accelerate the deployment of new solutions with key technology and business features to help companies solve business problems and go live fast.

Emerging technology themes like the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Smart Factory, along with the continued expansion of enterprise technology systems and the growing magnitude of customer interaction data, are opening new opportunities for companies to innovate closer to markets and customers.

The SAP HANA Big Data Intelligence rapid-deployment solution allows businesses to acquire, analyze and present data quickly and affordably from a variety of sources in order to evolve with changing market environments. The new rapid-deployment solution combines the SAP HANA platform, SAP Event Stream Processor, and optionally SAP IQ software and the Apache Hadoop software library. It optimizes information processing for a wide range of data types and scenarios, providing businesses with an integrated platform for real-time analysis, aggregation and visualization of business-critical data. Leveraging the application and in-memory database features of the SAP HANA platform to integrate structured and unstructured data, the new rapid-deployment solution enables customers to organize, access and wield Big Data quickly to create insight-to-action opportunities. SAP HANA Big Data Intelligence rapid-deployment solution includes templates for typical Big Data use cases. These templates help customers jump-start their exploration and implementation of Big Data use cases to accelerate dramatically time to value at a reduced cost.

Stream intelligence, sentiment intelligence and signal intelligence represent three common Big Data scenarios. The rapid-deployment solution addresses all three of them with preconfigured content. Stream intelligence allows customers to monitor incoming events, receive instant issue notifications and predict hit profiles on critical Web sites in real time. Sentiment intelligence helps users gain direct insight from the most vocal constituents to aid in delivering personalized, targeted experiences, thus creating more responsive engagement with the ecosystem. Based on the latest IoT data, signal intelligence provides maintenance forecasting features as well as providing insights on the status of manufacturing equipment or transformers in the utility space.

“This solution helps our customers make sense of their Big Data and provides preconfigured content and highly applicable Big Data use cases as templates to jump-start their Big Data implementations,” said Elvira Wallis, senior vice president, Solution and Knowledge Packaging, SAP. “By leveraging the power of SAP HANA, this new rapid-deployment solution allows our customers to realize and grasp the power of Big Data to help simplify and grow their business.”

Interested parties can participate in a free course on the openSAP platform, the massive open online course provider from SAP. The course entitled “Rapid Deployment of SAP Solutions” starts today and provides insights on how best practices, proven methodologies and preconfigured content make adoption of SAP innovations simple.
