Given the present day technology that has shrunk the world, people have access to all forms of information at their fingertips, especially as information is passed on through technology. Even the very small villages in the least developed economies have access to such information through the world wide web, social networking and mobile phones. With data growing at an phenomenal pace, there is also an increasing number of source of data. The idea is to keep yourself abreast of these developments and have your industry utilise and benefit from such information.
This is where SAP for small businesses can come to reality. SAP technology helps SMEs stay tuned with the pace of multiplying data by pooling millions of information bits together and allow small businesses to access them even while being mobile and analyze the information.
SAP has come up with specialised technology especially targeting the SMEs. In-Memory technology from SAP is one such technology that is designed for small businesses to compete against the big players in the industry. SAP Hana utilises the in-memory database technology whereby the database relies primarily on the main memory of the computer storage that reduces the input and output reading activity while improving the predictable performance while using multi-engine query processing environment allowing for relational data, graphic and textual processing for semi and unstructured data management within the same system.
Cloud computing and mobility:
Cloud computing and mobility further enables SAP application. Storing all the data on the cloud means less expenditure and heightened security. Small businesses must indeed tap in the advantages of the cloud. This coupled with mobile devices, not only makes the access to information easy, but also accelerates the information or data analysis making the scalability if not ahead of, at least on par with th large enterprises. Earlier SAP had also announced launching HANA Cloud .
SAP is here to enable small businesses overcome the challenges they face on all levels – right from recruitment, to human resources, to raising capital, to regulatory challenges. It is certainly instrumental for small businesses to avail the advantages of SAP.
