Global Research and Business Incubation Ra'anana (Israel) was established in 2008 and is co-located with SAP Labs Israel. The group is engaged in EU FP7 research projects in the information and communication technology (ICT) space, as well as in shorter-term advanced prototyping projects.
The Israeli group focuses on the following research areas:
Technology infrastructure – SAP is investigating new models of deployment using cloud, virtualization, and multitenancy. In addition, the modern SAP landscape relies on state-of-the-art main memory, columnar databases. We are looking into distributed shared-memory technology in order to obtain very large-scale, yet cost-effective main memory architectures.
Semantic Web and business applications – There are benefits in applying semantic technologies in service-oriented architectures and business applications. The areas of semantic interoperability and service compositions are promising candidates. Semantic technologies can be applied to harmonize different content sources – improving enterprise information management and increasing the productivity of information workers.
Advanced Innovations Foundation – Many innovative applications share the need for advanced, sophisticated services, such as: sentiment analysis, predictive analytics, text mining, machine learning and others. A common foundation leveraging diverse structured and unstructured data sources aims to integrate such services and their provisioning to advanced applications, such as intangible assets management.
