Forrester evaluated a dozen vendors and ranked SAP the highest in “Strategy” and “Market Presence.” The SAP HANA platform, the SAP Data Hub solution and the SAP Agile Data Preparation service scored 5/5 in 18 of 25 evaluation criteria that Forrester applied in the research study.

“SAP crushes translytical workloads,” Forrester wrote. “SAP HANA is a shared-nothing, in-memory data platform, the core of SAP’s translytical platform, which supports many use cases, including real-time applications, analytics, translytical apps, systems of insight and advanced analytics. Enterprises use the platform for in-memory data marts, SAP Business Warehouse and applications like SAP S/4HANA and SAP Business Suite. SAP Vora™ extends the translytical platform by supporting the Apache Spark execution framework to deliver enriched interactive analytics on Hadoop.”

SAP Extends In-Memory Computing Leadership to Next-Generation Translytical Solutions

“SAP pioneered in-memory computing and now extends that leadership to innovate rapidly around next-generation translytical solutions that introduce new levels of operational efficiency and business insight to customers,” said Greg McStravick, president, Database and Data Management, SAP. “We believe this ranking, and the continued success of our customers, is a result of our dedication and commitment to delivering the best business data platform in the world.”

Customers, including Convergent IS and Vectus Industries Limited, trust SAP HANA and solutions built on SAP HANA to support both transactions and analytics on diverse data, helping them become modern, real-time digital businesses.

It’s truly on-demand, real-time processing and reporting with new metrics not previously available at the point of action.”
