HANA and the Real Time Platform

We were very excited to have as our guest speaker Sid Sipes, Director of Data Warehouse in the SAP Solutions Management group.  For a copy of his presentation, click here: Sid Sipes’ Overview of the SAP Real Time Data Platform

Sid gave an informative presentation called “HANA and the Real Time Platform”.  He explained what HANA is and how it’s different from the Sybase portfolio. He discussed where each of the products fit and why it’s important to SAP, and how the Sybase products are tightly integrated and are coupled with HANA in the real time data platform. SAP Sybase ASE, SAP Sybase SQL Server, SAP Sybase IQ and other products in the Sybase portfolio will co-exist in the SAP futures roadmap to create a more robust environment. Having a real time data platform means to have one data platform with common APIs and common SQL language to have your environment working efficiently and effectively.

Sid is responsible for promoting and supporting SAP Sybase IQ and the SAP Real Time Data Platform. He works on many projects providing technical support for his clients. Sid started with Sybase in 1995 supporting Sybase IQ for at least 15 years. Since the 2010 SAP and Sybase acquisition, Sid joined the SAP Solution Management team and works on strategic solutions for SAP clients in the area.
