Why You Should Use SAP HANA Cloud Platform – Part 2
Connect To Your End-Users
Staying in touch and connected to your end-users becomes more and more important for companies in today’s increasingly connected world. Something as simple as a re-tweet of a message on Twitter can have a viral impact, either positive or negative, on a company’s brand. Making decisions based on huge amounts of data in real-time becomes crucial to provide innovations that end-users need and want. Finally it’s the end-user deciding about the success of your products and services.
As a developer you can leverage the services of SAP HANA Cloud Platform to help your company take advantage of a powerful platform. The persistence service provides you direct access to the in-memory technology of SAP HANA. You connect to it via JDBC and can run queries on large data with an awesome response time. Just think what kind of different applications you can build if you have such a powerful data technology in the cloud.
Connecting data in the cloud with the data on the on-premise systems of your company is even more interesting. The connectivity service of SAP HANA Cloud Platform lets you configure secure access to your back-end systems through the cloud. Let your cloud-application cross-connect data in the cloud with data on your back-end systems and let your innovation provide the end-user with a value add for the end-user and your company.
All of that with a secured rock-solid VPN tunnel with state-of-the-art SSL encryption between your application and your back-end systems.
But not only the services provided directly via the SAP HANA Cloud Platform are interesting. With other SAP products like SAP HANA Cloud Portal or SAP Mobile On HANA Cloud you can leverage powerful SAP technologies like mobile and collaboration services to engage in two way conversations with end consumers.
