“We leverage AWS (Amazon Web Services) and SAP Hana cloud platform for delivering analytics solution. SAP has been on forefront by introducing in- memory database (Hana). One of the common concerns of CIOs has been duplication of data in transaction database and data warehouse. It takes inordinate amount of effort to build a data warehouse where data quality is always suspected. By bringing in-memory database that can support both transaction and analytics, SAP Hana has substantially reduced the time to build analytics.
Both applications (transaction and analytics) refer to same data stored in-memory which greatly improves the quality of reporting data”, adds the Founder Rohit Kumar.
