SAP releases SAP HANA SP6
The software vendor SAP released a major update of SAP HANA. Now, the database platform HANA is available including the latest innovations in service pack 6 (SP6).
SAP HANA is a completely re-imagined platform that transforms transactions, analytics, predictive and text sentiment processing so that businesses can operate in real-time. Savero took a quick look into the new version of SAP HANA (SP6) providing an overview of the new key features.
1. CRUD Options on OData Services
Now it is possible to use the standardized OData services not only for accessing data in read-only mode. Now, full CRUD capabilities (create, read, update, delete) exists. Thus, it is very easy to get access to data by using a standardized REST-ful webservice with OData.
2. Web Development Environment (IDE) / Browser Based IDEs
In addition to the Eclipse-based SAP HANA Studio, it is now possible to develop right out of the browser or even by using mobile devices on the go. Changes are directly updated within the catalog of the server.
3. XSJS Outbound Connectivity
With SAP HANA SP6 it is very easy to add other sources to your application. Now, it is possible to easily create mashups by accessing existing webservices and thus enrich your application by using external data.
