SAP HANA is an innovative in-memory computing platform available to power SAP Business One. The software allows businesses to capture and analyse information across all applications, unleashing the potential of big data. Thanks to SAP HANA, large amounts of information can be processed in a fraction of the time, delivering real-time analytics, transactions, forecasting and unprecedented insight across your business.
It's a common myth that SAP HANA is primarily suitable for big businesses, with vast amounts of data to process. When in fact, the solution can benefit any business, in any industry, offering information and insight in real time and unlocking the ability to improve company processes and profitability. HANA enables small and medium sized businesses to innovate and grow, whilst cutting down on IT complexities. So if your company would benefit from better oversight across its operations, SAP HANA could be the solution for you.
Plus, adoption of SAP Business One on the HANA platform, as opposed to an SQL server, is futureproofing your company's technological infrastructure.
