Yesterday (August 31, 2016), SAP launched SAP BW/4HANA with the aim of centralizing data warehousing on HANA.
According to the SAP press release, the goal is to provide a pre-packaged cloud-based data warehouse solution that provides opportunities to achieve real-time analytics across data sets that reside both within and outside the enterprise. Logical use cases include capabilities to combine IoT machine data with enterprise applications data and real-time analysis of consumer behavioral data.
