During the summer of 2017, we at SAP® Co-Innovation Lab were approached by colleagues from the IoT development line of business at SAP with a topic that we all thought was worth brainstorming. They were looking for a way to closely integrate MathWorks’ MATLAB with the SAP HANA® platform. MATLAB is a product suite for data analytics (and beyond). It is very popular at universities and research institutes, where it is enjoying widespread adoption among students, scholars, and research staff. SAP HANA is a technology platform for developing and running the data-intense applications that are experiencing accelerated adoption among leading enterprises – globally. The idea was to explore a way to integrate the two in a best possible way from a technology perspective. We decided to do this in a technical proof of concept, which we conducted in the SAP Co-Innovation Lab environment. Right from the beginning, a German solution provider and system integrator was part of the discussions: statmath GmbH. statmath has deep and sound expertise in MATLAB. The company is also an official partner and member of MathWorks’ developer community.
This paper is about the findings of this project – especially the ones we thought would be interesting to the SAP HANA developer community.
Look out for additional blogs on this topic in near future.They will most likely come from my statmath GmbH colleagues (as the co-author of the paper Jean Zimmermann).
I hope you’ll find it useful!
