With HANA, SAP® has created a development platform for Big Data applications and provides a high-performance in-memory database. The relational database in SAP HANA® stores all data in the working memory and can therefore guarantee optimal access times to large amounts of data. The SAP HANA® database is not only designed for applications with SAP®, but can also be used for various high-performance database applications.
The procedure for connecting external applications to SAP HANA® is very similar to other relational databases. With the SAP HANA® plug-in of the OPC router, connections to the HANA database can be configured graphically. With its plug-in, the OPC Router can write data to the database, change data, read from it and call procedures in SAP HANA®. These options, in combination with the other available Plug-ins, make it easy to quickly integrate us into the SAP HANA® infrastructure.
