Independent Research Firm Names SAP a Leader in Translytical Data Platforms


WALLDORF SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced that it has been named a leader in “The Forrester Wave™: Translytical Data Platforms, Q4 2019.”

Forrester Research Inc. evaluated 14 vendors and gave SAP the highest possible score in the Customer Adoption and Market Awareness criteria. The SAP HANA platform scored 5 out of 5 in 18 of the 24 evaluation criteria Forrester applied in the research study.

In the report, Forrester stated, “SAP remains one of the most popular translytical solutions. SAP was the first vendor to offer translytics with its SAP HANA platform. SAP continues to demonstrate its strong focus on translytics with its market growth and innovation.”

The report observed, “Customers like SAP HANA’s translytical capabilities.” It noted its speed of transaction processing, ability to deliver business analytics in a fraction of the time compared to traditional platforms and its simplification of operational complexity by reducing ETL processes. SAP HANA is the first major database to support Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory for real-time data anonymization and offers the broadest multimodal and advanced analytics support. According to the report, organizations use it to support in-memory data marts, real-time analytics, operational insights, and the SAP Business Warehouse application, SAP S/4HANA and SAP Business Suite software as well as custom-built apps.

In the view of SAP, the ranking of its translytical data platforms validates the business technology platform strategy of SAP, which brings SAP HANA and analytics closer together within the single reference architecture required for modern enterprises.

“The translytical capabilities of SAP HANA turn data into business value by supporting all kinds of workloads and use cases, including real-time transaction processing, streaming analytics, machine learning and rapid operational reporting within a single database,” said Gerrit Kazmaier, executive vice president, SAP HANA & Analytics, SAP. “Our various cloud and on-premise deployment options deliver a high level of openness, scalability and flexibility for customers.”

SAP HANA has more than 31,000 customers.
