    How is Big Data impacting IT?Devices are becoming more and more connected, and so are business processes. And as human beings, were persistently connected via our mobile devices.

    Four aspects of technology are converging:1. social networking2. pervasive access to mobile devices3. cloud delivery 4. information overload (which creates the big context).Add to that silos of operational technology (real world) data and information technology (business) data, and to extract insight, the data must reside on a single platform.

    Big Data Platform powered by SAP HANA?SAP HANA has evolved from initially being an in-memory database to being a true data management platform for all smart applications and analytics. Its capabilities include: Auniquewayofingestingdifferentsourcesofdata(OTLPorOLAP,

    structured or unstructured) into its in-memory database

    Embedded engines for processing including planning, business rules, predictive analytics, and geospatial data

    Purpose-built applications powered by SAP HANA, as well as SAP Business Suite and SAP Business Warehouse on HANA.

    > 60% of use cases for this platform are non-SAP

    Use case in the spotlight: EnergyThe Challenge

    The organization was looking to transform its business across finance, maintenance and the supply chain.

    Its traditional information architecture was highly fragmented and unable to meet current business needs, let alone Big Data challenges.

    The Solution

    A layered scalable architecture was used to deploy SAP Business Warehouse to:

    improve agility allow multi-sourcing of both cloud and on premise enable self-service access to real-time data emphasize flexible content, rather than reporting.

    Managed data sources enable strict control and governance, while self-service tools and access give business users a greater degree of freedom.

    Small data such as transactional and structured data and master data was connected to the big data from telemetry, logs, exploration, drilling and prediction.

    Embedded, closed-loop analytics inject insights directly into planning and other process functions.
