In-memory computing is an innovative technology that combines rapid database transactions with real-time data analytics. The revolutionary SAP HANA platform lets you perform all transaction and analytic processing in-memory and make data instantly available from a single system.

This architecture converges online transaction processing (OLTP) and online analytical processing (OLAP) operations on a single data copy in one in-memory, column-based data store. This makes SAP HANA the most suitable platform for building and deploying next-generation, real-time applications and analytics.

By providing advanced capabilities, such as predictive text analytics, spatial processing, data virtualisation, on the same architecture, it further simplifies application development and processing across big data sources and structures.

Uniquely, CSI brings together skilled SAP analytics and applications practitioners with IBM and HP infrastructure experts to create the UK’s only true end-to-end SAP HANA solution capability.


SAP HANA is the platform for all existing applications enabling your business to:

  • Harness the power of in-memory, columnar, massively parallel database processing
  • Ensure compliance with all requirements for the atomicity, consistency, isolation, and durability (ACID) standards
  • Support multiple, fully-isolated tenant databases in one system
  • Use comprehensive administration tools from any device and location
  • Safeguard your information through such strategies as authorisation and single sign-on
  • Provide high availability and disaster recovery through storage mirroring, synchronous and asynchronous system replication, hot standby, auto restart, and auto failover


SAP HANA breaks traditional database barriers. Engaging with CSI’s SAP experts will:

  • Simplify IT landscapes, eliminating data preparation, pre-aggregation, and tuning
  • Provide instant access to huge volumes of structured and unstructured data
  • Adapt your business processes and forecast outcomes in real time
  • Invent new business models and processes
  • Reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) of hardware and maintenance

With SAP HANA you can build the smart insight-driven applications your business needs to capitalise on change. Using our proven methodology, CSI will work with you to identify the workloads which will benefit most from an in-memory platform, the returns you can expect to achieve, the architecture needed for a highly available real time environment and the full scope of a comprehensive implementation plan.
