SAP integrates R with HANA

March 15, 2012

(This article was first published on Revolutions, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

We can add SAP to the list of vendors offering R integration with their products. InformationWeek reports that the new SAP BusinessObjects Predictive Analysis model provides a graphical user interface to R. Created in reaction to "competitive and market forces, including the momentum of open source R", the new module provides in-database processing (presumably by embedding R within HANA in-memory database appliance, as described in this SAP presentation), and by offering "mainstream analytics" (presumably in-built analytic methods, like those included with the IBM Netezza appliance).


SAP BusinessObjects Predictive Analysis is currently available only to a limited set of clients and expected to be generally available later this year.
