Upcoming Sessions:

March 13th
Building Translytical Applications Using Hibernate, SAP HANA and Google
In the past transactional (or operational) and analytical workloads have usually been processed by separate systems.
This method was considered a best practice to prevent analytical workloads from interfering with operational processing.In 2018, this approach has critical drawbacks.
With the introduction of SAP HANA, SAP has started to break down the separation of transactional and analytical workloads by addressing:

  • Creating an in-memory data platform capable of running transactional and analytical workloads in one system against one single copy of the data.
  • Enabling systems, named “translytical data platforms” by Forrester, which combine the advantages of transactional and analytical systems
  • Achieving scenarios such as the consistency guarantees of a transactional system and the advanced analytical features of an analytical system, while eliminating the disadvantages like data duplication, and performing analytics on outdated data.

Join us for this session which will show how to build an application leveraging both the transactional and analytical capabilities of the SAP HANA database while using familiar and proven frameworks like Hibernate for interacting with the database.

Speaker: Jonathan Bregler, Software Engineer, SAP

Time: 8am PST / 11am EST / 4:00pm CET
