SAP simplifies HANA Cloud Platform with new options

SAP today announced new offerings for SAP HANA Cloud Platform.

Customers can select from three offerings: SAP HANA AppServices, SAP HANA DBServices, and SAP HANA Infrastructure Services.

Vishal Sikka, member of the Executive Board of SAP AG, Products & Innovation, said: “With these steps, customers and partners can experience the power of SAP HANA and build amazing applications in any way they choose to chart new frontiers in cloud-based software without compromise.”

New pricing options for SAP HANA is expected to enhance the reach of the SAP HANA platform and make it easily accessible to everyone starting with a base price with add-on options available as desired.


Customers buy through a consumption model and can either implement end-to-end platform use cases or choose additional options as needed such as predictive analytics, spatial processing and planning. This significantly increases the opportunities to get started with SAP HANA and affords customers the ultimate ability to innovate.

SAP announced enhanced offerings for SAP HANA Cloud Platform. Startups, ISVs and customers can now build new data-driven applications in the cloud. This platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offers in memory-centric infrastructure, database and application services to build, extend, deploy and run applications.

SAP HANA Cloud Platform is available today via SAP HANA Marketplace. Customers can gain access to SAP HANA in as little as 30 minutes and immediately benefit from a unified platform service for next-gen apps, and can easily buy, deploy and run with the flexibility of a subscription contract.

The new SAP HANA Cloud Platform offerings are available for a simplified trial and purchase experience in sizes ranging from 128 GB to 1 TB of memory on SAP HANA Marketplace, an online store that lets customers learn, try, and buy applications powered by SAP HANA. SAP Fiori apps and hundreds of startups and ISVs offerings are also available on the site.

SAP Genomic Analyzer is an application powered by SAP HANA that aims to allow researchers and clinicians to find insights from genomics data in real time.

Currently in the early adoption phase, key planned benefits include faster data processing through various stages of genomics pipeline — alignment, annotation and analysis — and immediate analysis of data in minutes rather than days.
