Welcome SAP folks to the HANA Tech Night Mannheim info page for the year 2020.

HANA Tech Nights focus on topics around the SAP HANA Platform, SAP HANA as a Service  and native HANA development. As a result of the change in SAP's direction ("cloud first") since March 2019, we intent to concentrate in addition on cloud based development and new topics like Cloud Application Programing Model (CAP)  and Side-by-Side Extensions which uses SAP HANA as backend service. Which defines the role of the "cloudy" HANA Developer.

We had three great events in the last year, information can be found on HANA Tech Nights Mannheim 2019.

In this talk Mathias Kemeter will present SAP HANA Spatial and some recent enhancements in the area of geospatial clustering.

The geospatial capabilities of SAP HANA are a not-so-hidden gem amongst HANA’s multi-model processing engines. For those who haven’t heard yet, SAP HANA offers spatial datatypes and processing algorithms for creating sophisticated in-database spatial analytics and connecting expert GIS systems such as Esri ArcGIS.

With SAP HANA Spatial being an out-of-the-box database engine, you can inject the geospatial dimension into your applications or analytical models. HANA’s proven qualities as well as the transparent combination of relational, spatial, graph and unstructured document data are the door-opener for creating a 360 view on your business data.
