SAP TechEd Day 2


VishalSikkaDay 2 of SAP TechEd began with a keynote by executive board member Dr. Vishal Sikka. Dr. Sikka heads up technology and innovation for the company and has responsibility for SAP HANA, analytics, mobile application platform and middleware. Vishal began his keynote discussing HANA and the many amazing performance it has achieved.

HANA is normally sold as an all-in-one solution with our hardware partners ensuring the best hardware and software configuration. Now HANA is available in the Amazon cloud which makes getting a HANA instance up and running very quickly. This solution is excellent for businesses that want to use the power of HANA for development and testing. It can even be used in production for smaller data sets ( up to 30GB ).

After the HANA discussion Vishal introduced Sam Yen, global head of user interface and design. Sam demonstrated a new project they are working on called AppDesigner. This is a visual template based solution for building applications on the fly. It generates HTML5, CSS and Java script that will run on your device.

Also announced was SAP NetWeaver Cloud which allows developers to create cloud applications that can access SAP systems. It also allows development of cross-platform mobile web sites. You can get more information about NetWeaver cloud here.

There was also a discussion of our Business Intelligence offerings. One of the latest is SAP Visual Intelligence which is a tool for quickly analyzing data. It includes charts, graphs and even geospatial representations of your data. You can join the Data Geek Challenge by using your own data and creating a visualization.

The keynote also included some discussion of Mobility and Database platforms. These included Afaria, ASE and SQL Anywhere from Sybase. You can view the entire keynote here.
