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.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

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.
