Developers now have more options to use the express edition of SAP HANA, with the announcement that the platform is now available via Docker Store, Google Cloud Launcher, Huawei Cloud and Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
SAP made the announcement at SAP TechEd, held last week in Las Vegas.
Introduced in September 2016, SAP HANA Express Edition has become a popular choice for application developers seeking to build smart applications and analytics solutions.
Daniel Schneiss, senior vice president and global head of SAP HANA development, SAP, said the edition is “designed so developers can quickly start building powerful data-driven applications that deliver unforeseen insights from live data, using their programming language of choice. We will continue to expand cloud options for SAP HANA, offering developers the flexibility to choose the cloud platform that they prefer.”
SAP and Google Cloud also announced the results of the Intelligent App Challenge, which was initiated at the SAPPHIRE NOW conference in May 2017. The winners included VASPP, which created an app for easy charting of diverse SAP-sourced data for business analytics, and BOHH Labs, whose app secures data in transit to avoid breaches and increase compliance. Other finalists included Infosys, Mexbalia and SmartDocs.
