HANNOVER — SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced general availability of SAP HANA Vora, an in-memory query engine that brings powerful contextual analytics across all data stored in Hadoop, enterprise systems and other distributed data sources.

The announcement was made at CeBIT 2016, being held March 14–18 in Hannover, Germany.

SAP has an established partner ecosystem, including Cloudera, Databricks, Hortonworks and MapR Technologies, that plans to support SAP HANA Vora. Read what early adopter partners have to say.


“With more customers running Spark in production than any other Hadoop vendor, Cloudera is well positioned to support SAP HANA Vora users who are looking to extract analytical insights that can only be derived by looking across operational data and big data. We believe [SAP] HANA Vora will enable SAP customers to execute Big Data workloads more easily and at a far faster rate than ever before.” — Tim Stevens, Vice President of Business and Corporate Development, Cloudera


“SAP has deep expertise in in-memory enterprise computing for applications and analytics, and the introduction of SAP HANA Vora is the next evolution in this journey. We’re excited to see SAP extending their commitment to Apache Spark, and helping drive its adoption with their enterprise customers.” — Arsalan Tavakoli-Shiraji, Vice President of Customer Engagement and Business Development, Databricks


“CenterPoint Energy is using Hortonworks Data Platform and SAP HANA Vora together to get the power of instant data access with the infinite scale of Apache Hadoop and Apache Spark. This partnership gives users a broad range of options for storing and analyzing new types of data and the ability to create applications that can uncover new business opportunities from large volumes of data that previously would not have been possible.” Matthew Morgan, Vice President, Product and Alliance Marketing, Hortonworks

MapR Technologies

“As Big Data matures and becomes mission-critical there is a growing need for traditional methods of analysis such as OLAP to become widely available on Hadoop. SAP HANA Vora brings the power of a Spark-powered OLAP analysis solution to analysts and data scientists alike for bridging the worlds of structured and unstructured data. More information on what OLAP brings to Hadoop can be found by visiting my blog.” — Steve Wooledge, Vice President of Product Marketing, MapR Technologies
