SAP AG today announced integration of Apache Hadoop into real-time data warehousing environments with a new "big data" bundle and go-to-market strategy with Cloudera, Hitachi Data Systems, Hortonworks, HP and IBM. The offering is based on the flagship SAP HANA platform and combines the SAP Sybase IQ server, SAP Data Integrator software and SAP BusinessObjects business intelligence (BI) solutions. It provides a comprehensive data warehousing solution for real-time insights across massive data sets from various sources. The announcement was made at the O'Reilly Strata Conference + Hadoop World, being held October 23-25 as a co-located event in New York.
Where traditional databases once dominated enterprise data warehousing strategies, Hadoop is gaining traction among companies looking for an efficient and affordable way to store and process ever-increasing data volumes. However, companies struggle to integrate Hadoop with their business analytics environments and refined data warehousing practices. Together, the "big data" bundle from SAP and go-to-market partnerships with Hadoop vendors enable SAP to offer its customers a complete real-time data warehousing strategy that harnesses Hadoop's potential with the speed of in-memory computing and columnar databases.
Mitsui Knowledge Industry, experts in bioinformatics and genome analysis, have built a real-time analytic database that uses SAP HANA for complex, iterative algorithms against genome sequences preprocessed in Hadoop, reducing genome analysis from days to minutes. A global leader in measuring the digital world, comScore uses Hadoop to process terabytes of data each day. The company loads results into its enterprise data warehouse based on SAP Sybase IQ, which can then be analyzed by thousands of comScore customers using self-service tools.
"Our goal is to help organizations build a high-performance enterprise data warehouse that combines the power of real-time insights with Hadoop processing frameworks," said Steve Lucas, global executive vice president and general manager, Database & Technology, SAP. "With new 'big data' offerings delivering information at unprecedented speeds, customers can uncover and harness new measurable signals from any data source for critical business insights."
Bringing together the speed, scale, flexibility and affordability needed to fully tap the potential of "big data," SAP is offering the following Hadoop-integrated solutions in a single bundle, as well as individually:
• SAP HANA database
• SAP Sybase IQ, a columnar database and enterprise data warehouse database
• SAP Data Integrator
• SAP BusinessObjects BI suite
