In-memory technology, cloud computing and the use of mobile terminal devices are much-discussed topics in the housing industry. The SAP HANA Cloud Platform forms the basis for the cloud solutions from SAP, enables real-time data processing and thus opens the door for entirely new areas of application.
Effective immediately, Datatrain is licensed to develop and run its own applications on the SAP HANA Cloud Platform. As an SAP partner, numerous services are available to us in the cloud. The costs, on the basis of monthly fees, are clearly calculable. Investments in additional IT infrastructure can be avoided, and SAP provides maintenance and support. With the SAP HANA Cloud, we can offer our clients applications – including mobile ones, of course – that require fast access to high volumes of data from the SAP system, such as reporting tools. The in-memory platform SAP HANA processes the data in real time, making even complex analyses possible online.
Additionally, existing applications can be integrated in the SAP HANA Cloud Platform – and connected with available on-premise systems. In this way, housing providers can design their processes to be even more efficient and thus lower-cost.
Beyond this, plans are afoot to make selected Datatrain solutions accessible to NON-SAP customers as well. These solutions will be used as software as a service, with the option for data, too, to be stored in the SAP HANA Cloud.
