Current challenges in grown system landscapes
- Today's default system architecture paradigm is client-server with dedicated servers for applications and databases.
- Historical limitations in computing power led to fragmented, complex system landscapes with artificially inflated volumes of duplicated and inconsistent data.
- Data is exchanged over point-to-point interfaces or enterprise application integration-infrastructures (EAI) mostly in asynchronous batch runs.
- Operations and maintenance of these landscapes is extremely expensive and they are not prepared to support the business in the digital era.
- Introduction of a new system architecture approach with a Corporate Data Pool based on HANA as single point-of-truth.
- Protection of investments into application logic while shutting down all isolated data silos.
- Step-by-step transition without interruption of business and with immediate benefits.
Sounds easy - still not many enterprises are doing it yet. Why?! Because here I introduce HANA into an environment where it is not at all used today: running, productive non-SAP systems. This has amazing and unexpected effects which offer new options for users.
