If you are looking for ideas to apply SAP HANA within your organization then the HANA use case repository hosted on experiencesaphana is the perfect place for you to explore and be inspired! I launched the HANA use case repository at Sapphire Orlando with 50+ use cases by featuring it at the discussion table “Building the Business Case for SAP HANA” within the Database & Technology campus. If you did not get a chance to step by the booth, you still have a chance to listen to Steve Thipodeau from SAP Value Engineering explain how the repository was used to engage with customers in coversations related to SAP HANA.
Check out the following new and updated use cases
The true value of any resource such as this repository comes from how regularly content is added or updated. As such, Sapphire offered exciting new content that I could harvest as more than 30 HANA customers shared their experiences and usage of SAP HANA. So even if you have already browsed the repository here are three examples of new and updated content that is waiting for you to explore and why you should re-visit often in the future:
- The Genome Analysis use case articulates how by using SAP HANA it becomes possible for organizations such as MKI to deliver advanced medical treatment to many more patients
- The Real-time offer management for on-line gaming use case is a great example of how HANA can enable gaming organizations to capitalize on business opportunities not possible before and highlights how industries such as online gaming become very much relevant for SAP and its eco-system. Listen how Bigpoint has used SAP HANA to monetize online gaming.
- For the Real-time financial planning use case you explore the great new resources that have been added. Watch Colgate talk about the opportunity for BPC on HANA within their organization, how ConAgra expects to reduce the integrated business process cycle time from weeks to days and how Lonmin can now run more planning scenarios simultaneously thereby improving their decision processes.
