Free, Flexible and Fast Development of Next-Generation Applications Lets Any Company Jump-Start Its Digital Journey.
Recently announced SAP HANA®, express edition, a streamlined, downloadable version of its in-memory platform optimized for fast and continuous development of data-driven applications. This latest release provides developers with ubiquitous access to the SAP HANA platform to build applications free of charge on a laptop or desktop, or in the cloud.
SAP HANA, express edition, supports the rising demand for developers with SAP HANA experience — identified as one of the top-paying skills in a recent 2016 Dice Salary Survey. SAP now delivers a downloadable version of SAP HANA along with tutorials, sample code and a vibrant SAP developer community to help developers get up to speed quickly with flexible deployment environments.
“With this new starter SAP HANA, express edition, we have been able to jump-start our development immediately, using our existing personal computers,” said Jean Safar, chief architect, Calypso Technology Inc. “With the preconfigured virtual machine option, it has been really simple to get hands-on experience with in-memory technology and develop our initial version on sample risk-related data sets. Additionally, the availability of flexible upgrade options to full-use editions will help us further experiment and leverage SAP HANA to support our future technology innovation plans.”
