Adopting SAP HANA can offer significant new business value, but it can also be an expensive proposition. If you are contemplating or in the process of moving to HANA, it’s worth your time to understand your options for Nearlining your SAP data. The latest version of Informatica ILM Nearline, released in February, has been certified by SAP and can run with SAP BW systems running on HANA or any relational database supported by SAP.
Nearlining your company’s production SAP BW before migrating to a HANA-based BW can provide huge saving potentials. Even if your HANA project has already started, Nearlining the production data will help keep the database growth flat. We have customers that have actually been able to shrink InfoProviders by enforcing strict rules on data retention on the data stored in the live database.
Informatica World is around the corner, and I will be there with my peers to demo and talk about the latest version of Informatica ILM Nearline.
