If you are a retailer, you are considering or have implemented some of the new technologies that help track where people walk and what they pick up, register emotional responses or show payment transparencies.
All of this tracking produces a ton of data. And I mean a ton of data. Chances are, you are using SAP Business Warehouse as your data warehouse.
You should be interested in the latest benchmarking results that our partner, Hitachi Data Systems, achieved last month. On June 24, 2016, the company went through the SAP BW Advanced Mixed Load (BW-AML) Standard Application Benchmark and was certified at 2,000,000,000 performance benchmark by the SAP Benchmark Council. This performance was achieved using what Hitachi calls “everyday 4 socket server” running SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, the operating system that powers over 90% of SAP HANA deployments.
So all that data retailers are collecting? It’s a piece of cake to process. According to Parisa Fathi, “With the power of the SAP HANA platform, customers can access data that they could not previously access economically and in real time and Hitachi’s UCP is just the high performance converged platform they need for this environment. Hitachi’s end-to-end SAP HANA offerings provide customers with a full range of platform solutions including managed services from oXya and consulting services from HCC.”
