On SAP TV, you will find a wealth of demonstrations and movies to explain the central themes of SAP HANA. A good example is that scientists at the Berlin university hospital, Charité, uses a newly developed mobile healthcare application based on SAP in-memory technology analyzing and comparing cancer related patient data. The “HANA Oncolyzer” supports the parallel analysis of millions of genome and other patient data within seconds in the main memory. Doctors and researcher can find faster and better the best cancer therapies for cancer patients. Watch the following video for more information, Fighting cancer with HANA Oncolyzerheck. At the research group “Enterprise Platform and Integration Concepts“ of Prof. Dr. Hasso Plattner at the Hasso Plattner Institute, they are conducting research projects with the goal of revolutionizing enterprise systems and applications based on them. At the core of SAP HANA is the concept of In-Memory Data Management. The HPI has a range of papers and conceptual models to illustrate how In-Memory computing works and how it revolutionizes the speed of analytics.
The Hasso Plattner Institute has a series of very insightful academic lecture recordings. The site is excellent for faculty who would like to understand SAP HANA from an academic perspective as well as from the perspective of the man who drove it’s development, Hasso Plattner himself.

Take SAP HANA for a test drive and find resources and communities to fast-track your implementation. Our SAP HANA Community provides access to SAP HANA via the downloading of a SAP HANA One client and the live use of Amazon Web Services and a wealth of training and self-learning materials that are accessible on the basis of time and data used. Check the details of the system usage particularly if you are planning on using systems for hours or using large amounts of data. The AWS system is a very good way to see SAP HANA in operation for an hour or two: http://www.saphana.com/community/learn/cloud-info.

The first SAP HANA curriculum is being developed within our global SAP HANA @ UA initiative. The initial course addresses more than one SAP product. We cover the end-to-end scenario from the data source, via data replication into the SAP HANA database, through modeling and the graphical representation of the data in analytics dashboards. Learn more about the curriculum and how to participate in the corresponding blog, “SAP HANA @ University Alliances Initiative – What’s Next?“
