Apache Sparkbased OLAP on Hadoop with SAP HANA Vora and MapR

OLAP analysis techniques have existed for many years and enabled analyses such as customer profitability, product profitability, and other types of analysis. The explosion in the volume and variety of data has led to the fast adoption of Hadoop for storage, archival, and processing of large amounts of data. There is an increasing need to deliver analysis on this new data that’s originating from sources such as mobile, social, and IoT, but also tie it back to structured data sources such as ERP systems. This will enable enterprises to get contextual insights and enable precision decision-making. This is where OLAP analysis on big data comes into the equation.

SAP and MapR have partnered to ensure customers can perform interactive and drill-down analysis across corporate and Hadoop data. The combination of MapR and SAP helps bridge the divide between enterprise data and big data, with simplified ownership of big data across IT. The MapR Platform integrates natively with SAP HANA Vora with Spark as the execution engine that enables access to data stored in the MapR Platform.

Benefits of SAP HANA Vora™ and MapR

Bridge the divide between enterprise data and big data

SAP HANA Vora solves key big data challenges by providing:

Data correlation for making precise contextual decisions Enables mashup of operational business data with external unstructured data sources for more powerful analytics.

Simplified management of big data Allows data to be processed locally on a Hadoop cluster, removing any data ownership and integration challenges.

OLAP modeling capabilities on Hadoop data. Real-time drill-down analysis is possible on large volumes of Hadoop data distributed across thousands of nodes.

SAP HANA Vora enables OLAP analysis of Hadoop data through data hierarchy enhancements in Spark SQL and compiled queries for accelerated processing. SAP HANA Vora helps make decisions more precise through interactive and drilldown analysis across corporate and Hadoop data. Data scientists and developers can now readily enrich their dataset in Hadoop with corporate data in the SAP HANA® database. It also reduces complexity and cost by simplifying data access and processing across SAP HANA and Hadoop.
