CIO Guide to Using the SAP HANA Platform for Big Data

This guide supports CIOs in setting up a system infrastructure for their business that can get the best out of Big Data. We describe what the SAP HANA platform can do and how it integrates with Hadoop and related technologies. We examine typical data flows where different technologies interplay, looking at data lifecycle management and data streaming. Concrete use cases point out the requirements associated with Big Data as well as the opportunities it offers, and how companies are already taking advantage of them.
