SAP, IBM Team Up on in-Memory Analytics

Chris Kanaracus | March 11, 2011
SAP announced Friday it has integrated its in-memory HANA (High-Performance Analytic Appliance) with IBM's DB2 database, a move that underscores the companies' increasing alignment against rival Oracle and its Exadata platform.

HANA currently consumes information from most databases via the ETL (extract, transform and load) process, a spokesman said. The near-real-time data synchronization provided by Sybase Replication Server will be enabled for databases besides DB2 in the future, he added.

Overall, SAP has placed high hopes on not only HANA but an array of specialized in-memory applications, a number of which were announced earlier this week at an event in Boston. The company is expected to reveal yet more details of its plans in May at the annual Sapphire conference in Orlando.
