As you start to leverage SAP HANA to build out real time solutions in your organization, be sure to consider how SAP HANA fits into the broader SAP Real-Time Data Platform (RTDP). This platform vision includes a portfolio of solutions, with SAP HANA at the core, which are tightly optimized to work together to solve modern-day data processing and management challenges.
Many customers have asked for more details on how we will leverage the rich capabilities of our data management offerings coming from SAP Sybase and SAP Business Objects in conjunction with SAP HANA. The SAP Real-Time Data Platform combines the power of all these solutions with evolving capabilities over time to integrate, optimize and then synthesize these solutions into a unified data platform architecture. In particular, the platform is focused on delivering the following essential capabilities: online transactional processing, data analytics, data processing and analysis, data modeling and movement, information governance, as well as unified administration and monitoring.
In order to help you understand how these solutions will evolve over time as an integrated SAP Real-Time Data Platform, SAP has just released several Statement of Direction documents covering various integration points in the SAP Real-Time Data Platform.
