Over time, a broader integration framework for Hana will enable partners such as SAS Institute to embed their own advanced analytics capabilities within Hana, according to a statement.
Native high availability and disaster recovery for Hana is also on the road map, SAP said.
"We can safely say that SAP has reached a genuine level of maturity on the database side with Hana," said Holger Mueller, vice president and principal analyst at Constellation Research. "The Suite on Hana is getting there. For both products, customers and prospects should look into the specific business case and benefits for the potential upgrade. On the product side, it is now time for SAP to look into more technology stack capabilities beyond the database."
Sapphire continues through Thursday in Orlando.
