Companies mentioned in this article: Logicalis US

NEW YORK, June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Organizations today are collecting so much data that it cannot be analyzed using traditional tools. But with the right tools in place, companies can use the deep information available at their fingertips to respond to business challenges and changes at the speed of thought. To help, Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (, is offering a number of tools through its SAP HANA initiative that will allow clients to explore HANA, and ultimately, to choose the right analytics platform for their specific needs so they can stop merely collecting data and start connecting with that data in meaningful ways.

"What's exciting about SAP HANA is that it's a platform designed for both data storage and data analytics," says Dan Quirk, SAP Practice Leader, Logicalis US. "SAP HANA has the capability to handle massive amounts of data, making it an ideal big data analytics and management tool that can eliminate the need for data marts, data warehouses and operational data stores. In addition to sizing, there are a number of things to consider when deploying an SAP HANA environment - things like disaster recovery; high availability; whether you want your HANA environment on premise, off premise or in the cloud; what kind of production environment and how many systems you need; and how the SAP HANA architecture will fit into your overall IT environment. These are the kinds of things Logicalis can help clients with, and we have created a number of tools to help our customers learn more and explore the possibilities that a HANA implementation can offer them."
