The SAP® Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that Safran Project 5 is now powered by SAP HANA. SAP HANA is revolutionizing the speed of data processing for reporting, analytics and computational tasks. Solutions that are powered by the SAP HANA platform have proven to run on SAP HANA and to tap into the distinctive capabilities of SAP HANA. Safran worked with assistance from SAP partner Rolta and its automated migration solution – Rolta SmartMigrate for SAP HANA – to migrate and certify Safran Project 5 as powered by SAP HANA.
“By running Safran Project on SAP HANA, project-driven organizations are provided with the computing power and unified capabilities required to deliver real-time analytics that can help ensure the highest levels of project confidence,” said Rajesh Ramachandran, president and chief technical officer, Rolta. “We are pleased to see Safran benefiting from the use of Rolta SmartMigrate, which enables customers worldwide to easily upgrade their current environments to SAP HANA to achieve similar results.”
SAP HANA combines database, data processing, and application platform capabilities in-memory. The platform provides libraries for predictive, planning, text processing, spatial, and business analytics. By providing advanced capabilities, such as predictive text analytics, spatial processing and data virtualization on the same architecture, it further simplifies application development and processing across big-data sources and structures. This makes SAP HANA a highly suitable platform for building and deploying next-generation, real-time applications and analytics.
