SAP HANA smart data streaming is now available

As you probably heard, SAP HANA SPS09 was released last week, and this is exciting news for anyone working with streaming event data.  This release of SAP HANA introduces a new capability: smart data streaming.  This adds high speed event stream processing to the SAP HANA platform, allowing HANA application to incorporate the ability to collect, analyze and respond to streams of event data – as fast as things happen.

Here’s a short demonstration of the streaming design-time tools in HANA Studio:

For those of you who are already regulars in the SAP ESP Developer Center, you’ll notice a name change:  the Smart Data Streaming Developer Center.  SAP HANA smart data streaming and SAP Event Stream Processor (ESP) are both built from the same technology, so they’ll be sharing this developer center.

Here’s an overview presentation on smart data streaming – this is part of the “SAP HANA SPS09 – What’s New” series. I’ll be presenting a Live Expert Session where I’ll be covering this material next week – please join me.

We’ve also just published a set of smart data streaming tutorials in the SAP HANA Academy – check out the smart data streaming playlist here.

The full set of product documentation is online here, as part of the SAP HANA doc set.  And customers can download the software from SAP Service Marketplace.

We’ll be publishing more material on SAP HANA smart data streaming in the coming days and weeks, and I hope to see an active dialog here in the Developer Center.  Let us know what questions you might have and what information you’d like to see.  Most importantly, we look forward to hearing about  your use cases.

      Hi Jeff,

      thanks for the update.

      The first thing that comes to mind is Reuters et al and straight through processing of stock exchange data.

      Best regards,

      Andy - you're spot on.  We do have a number of customers using this for applications supporting trading and risk management/monitoring in the capital markets and commodities markets.

      Other areas where this has been/is being adopted include:

      - Energy - everything from monitoring drilling to production through distribution

      - Telecoms - active network monitoring, QoS

      - Retail - click stream analysis, device monitoring, customer engagement

      - Manufacturing - monitoring sensor data with complex alerting

      And in general, the "Internet of Things" is the biggest driver of demand right now, collecting and monitoring data from smart devices. Use range from alerting to personalization to predictive maintenance.
