Deutsche Telekom speeds up big data with hosted HANA

The German operator has invested in infrastructure, integration consulting and training

Enterprises have another option for accessing SAP's in-memory database technology: Deutsche Telekom subsidiary T-Systems has been approved to offer HANA Enterprise Cloud.

The in-memory database technology can process large data volumes from business applications more quickly than standard server implementations, and also supports new integrated analytical methods, according to T-Systems.

Just as with other hosted offerings, one the biggest advantages is a lower threshold to entry. With HANA Enterprise Cloud, companies can enter the world of big data analytics without having to make any major investments, T-Systems said.

HANA Enterprise Cloud was announced in May, and it's offered via SAP's own data centers as well as through partners. It takes care of a lot of the important but more mundane tasks such as provisioning hardware and disaster recovery, SAP said at the time.

T-Systems has been stepping up its efforts in the cloud sector recently. Last week, the company announced the Enterprise Marketplace, which offers hosted hardware and software for Deutsche Telekom's corporate users.

For now, HANA Enterprise Cloud isn't available on the new marketplace. But that might change next year, if an evaluation currently under way goes well, according to a spokesman at T-Systems.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
