Make use of your company data!
In the recent years, many companies have been dealing with the problem of gathering an excessive volume of non-structured data. The data originates from many sources such as CRM, ERP, SRM systems, etc. Furthermore, access to the data is possible from various locations which exceeds the time of work with the information and makes it more difficult.

Innovative in-memory SAP HANA technology
