Experience SAP HANA as an enterprise geodatabase with the SAP Spatial Solutions Early Adopter Care program

In this blog post, you will learn about the SAP Spatial Solutions Early Adopter Care program, what it can do for you and why you should apply today. This program has two key focus areas: SAP HANA Spatial Services and SAP HANA as an enterprise geodatabase. This post focuses on the latter of the two.

Now what is it? The Early Adopter Care program allows you to experience firsthand the benefits of SAP HANA as an enterprise geodatabase with your own data in a 4-week engagement with no cost and no obligation. Esri’s geodatabase and advanced data models, like the Utility Network Model, use HANA’s native spatial datatypes and functions. Our joint SAP and Esri team does all of the heavy lifting throughout the four weeks. Once you are accepted into the program, we start with onboarding followed by an on-site meeting where we bring in our team to work directly with you. The program culminates in week 4 with implementation and evaluation where you provide feedback on your experience.

The benefits you can expect to witness firsthand are improved performance and seamless integration of your business data with your GIS data, both of which, in full production, lead to lower total cost of ownership. When you unleash SAP HANA as a geodatabase, you take advantage of in-memory spatial processing. Now you have seamless integration as a result of your business system (e.g. SAP ERP) running on the same platform as your GIS system of record (e.g. Esri). With ArcGIS Pro, you can create and manage data, create maps and do analysis with your geodatabase stored in SAP HANA. This means that you have improved performance because you no longer need to create or maintain summary tables or indices to gain query performance. For more details, check out Spatialitics’ whitepaper “SAP HANA as a geodatabase” and the Esri+SAP 311 demo.

This program provides you with additional benefits such as joint support from both SAP and Esri throughout the program duration, a direct feedback channel and the ability to influence future roadmaps, executive attention from SAP and Esri, possible invitation to SAP and Esri conferences and, if qualified, candidacy for SAP HANA Innovation Awards. In fact, Argentine Cooperatives Association, one of the 2019 SAP HANA innovation winners, participated in this program for SAP HANA Spatial Services and will be featured at SAPPHIRE 2019!

How to become involved? Simply complete the form here and we will assess your suitability for the program. To deliver the best experience with nearly assured results, we can only accept a limited number of candidates. Apply today for the opportunity to be part of a program that delivers.
