Dedham, MA (PressExposure) January 19, 2012 -- SAP HANA is the culmination of ten years of technological improvements in computing speed. With its release, companies can now compute data virtually in real-time, meaning that decisions can be made using up to the second data streams. This kind of technology can obviously revolutionize how a company operates and since SAP has released two versions of the technology. SAP HANA 1.0 and SAP HANA 1.0 Support Package 03, this article strives to answer the question of which version to adopt by contrasting the two.
Since SAP HANA 1.0 went onto the market this past June, it has so far functioned as an in memory database for which companies can use SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0 as the reporting engine for the database. With the new SAP HANA 1.0 Service Package 03, SAP NetWeaver BW 7.3 is built in and provides an advantage over traditional choices because of its in-memory and column storage. Bob Croce, product director of SAPexperts comments, "Either version of SAP HANA will provide a distinct advantage in data analysis and decision making. Deciding which version to use will depend on the specific needs of the organization."
