Navigating your business transformation with SAP HANA

About this event

Many organizations today have vast amounts of data that remain largely untapped because they lack the right infrastructure to extract impactful business intelligence and drive their digital transformation.

Modern systems can deliver the agility enterprises need to respond to market changes and better enable them to manage an increasingly complex business environment.

With its in-memory processing and real-time data analytics capabilities, SAP HANA harnesses a company’s data to fuel their business transformation. It not only streamlines processes and reduces system errors, but also provides meaningful insights to power better decision-making.

To help enterprises gain the most of their HANA deployments, SAP has collaborated with IBM and Red Hat for two decades to create a diverse portfolio of tightly integrated solutions.

Together, we offer a HANA journey that is tailored for your business environment and deliver new ways to unleash HANA, resolving business challenges long left unaddressed by other market players.

Key takeaways expected from the event:

  • Gaining business intelligence through digital transformation with SAP
  • Transforming and modernizing your SAP infrastructure with Red Hat
  • Arming up on reliability and resilience with IBM Power Systems for SAP HANA
  • Overcoming common challenges in digital transformation with IBM Power Systems for SAP HANA
