SAP HANA is an in-memory, column-oriented, relational database management system that processes data intensively while executing calculations and analytical functions deep at the database level. Its primary function is the storage and retrieval of application data.

SAP HANA performs advanced analytics, including predictive analysis, spatial data processing, text analytics, and textual search. SAP HANA also features ETL (Extract-Transform-Load) capabilities, and functions as an application server. Promoted as the database that “closes the gap between data and insight,” SAP HANA does more than store information. It contains a wealth of tools for processing and analyzing data to empower companies in optimizing their stored records.

SAP HANA’s ability to aggregate process data – and perform drill-down and analytic queries makes it popular in the computer software, IT, retail, financial services, and healthcare industries. Companies like Apple, John Deere, Kimberly-Clark, Lockheed Martin, and around 12,000 others, are deploying with SAP HANA.
