In May 2014, SAP announced the launch of a new program that aims to enable professors and students at universities and non-profit research institutions to advance their academic research and work with SAP using the in-memory platform for real-time computing, SAP HANA.
On September 1, 2014, Ahmed Alawaji, one of SAP’s HANA experts based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, joined SAP University Alliances under a 6 month fellowship supporting the HANA Innovation Platform @ Universities Program where he will be leading the roll-out in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Ahmed has been with SAP for three years where he is today responsible for analytics and big data.
The program is being rolled out globally. Universities have the opportunity to cooperate with the recently announced Big Data Innovation Centers at University Competence Center (UCC) locations. These will enable a vibrant community of research using SAP HANA. Universities and non-profit research institutions that partner with a Big Data Innovation Center at a UCC location will be designated as SAP University Alliances Innovation Labs.
