Data, More Data. And HANA.

With 90% of the world’s digital data created over the past two years and new data doubling every 18 months, we are solidly in the era of Big Data. But it’s the use of Big Data—our ability to access it, analyze it, and make decisions in real-time, that will form the basis for corporate growth and competitive advantage. Based on research from the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) and McKinsey & Company’s Business Technology Office, the volume of data generated, stored, and mined for insights has now become economically relevant to business, government, healthcare, consumers, and more. 

So what does this have to do with a little four-year old boy named Damian, who has a heart condition? Damian is the beneficiary of McLaren Group’s real-time telemetry technology based on the SAP HANA Platform. McLaren’s technology has traditionally been used to assess their highly successful Formula 1 race cars. Now, that same tracking capability is being used to collect data on Damian, including heart rate, respiration, oxygen levels, and blood pressure. McLaren’s Formula 1 system is used to processing vast amounts of data, so gathering information on patients is something it is eminently capable of doing. And with patient data in ICU’s typically deleted after 96 hours, long-term information collection can be extremely valuable in showing patterns and anomalies.

Learn how McLaren is expanding into healthcare by taking their real-time telemetry technology powered by SAP HANA and putting it into ICU’s to track critical patient vitals. A great example of re-imagining new OEM opportunities!  Read more here.

As partners creating solutions based on SAP technologies, your customers are demanding new, innovative technologies to address their Big Data challenges and opportunities. If you embed, bundle, or resell SAP solutions along with your own—we can help you capitalize on the Big Data opportunity:

  • You don’t have to rewrite your code and you don’t need proprietary hardware.
  • Even if your DB is not massive you can realize immense performance gains with HANA making mission critical processes faster.
  • You don’t have to reinvent the wheel from a developer point of view–HANA uses standard ANSII SQl and can be deployed in the Cloud, hosted, or on prem or any combination of these, and because there is no need for data pre-processing and aggregation, you can optimize database and database movement processes.

Whatever industry you operate in, whatever solution you are developing, SAP can help get you there.

SAP will work directly with you to create your HANA business solution—leveraging a proven design thinking approach—and help you execute and develop your ideas through a co-innovation process.
