Discover spatial solutions from SAP

SAP HANA's advanced analytical processing power can perform rapid calculations in real-time to find answers important to your business. With SAP HANA you can also create applications that visual insights, leveraging spatial and business data to make informed decisions.

Adopt advanced spatial capabilities

Choose geospatial systems and data suppliers at any time by leveraging open spatial standards within a modern platform. Blend SAP and non-SAP geographic data systems and data types with this source-agnostic, in-memory solution. Use SAP HANA as the enterprise geodatabase for market-leading solutions.

Create location-aware business applications

See how reinsurer Munich Re is currently leveraging geospatial satellite data provided by the European Space Agency through the Earth Observation Analysis service, a cloud service powered by the SAP HANA platform. The service enables Munich Re to more accurately calculate costs and risks related to wildfires – and even gain insights into the future probability of wildfires.

Supercharge your business apps

Discover how you can use spatial analysis functionality in SAP HANA to analyze disparate business, customer, and location-based data sources, helping you make smarter and faster decisions, save time and money, and increase revenue.

Text Analytics and Search

Get faster, broader insights from text

Harness the value of all your business data. With SAP HANA, you can perform text analysis, text mining, and search to discover new insights from unstructured documents. And, when you process both structured and unstructured data in one platform, you can gain broader, contextual insights to improve decision making while benefiting from less data duplication and movement.

Discover SAP HANA Text Analytics

Uncover consumer insights with SAP HANA's text analysis algorithms. SAP HANA's sentiment analysis algorithms can analyze thousands of social media posts, apply machine learning capabilities to break the data into categories, and use the data to determine the best routes to reach the most customers.

Text analysis

Unlock text hidden in almost any enterprise file format with automated document filtering. When text is processed, SAP HANA gives structure to unstructured text by applying linguistic markup and extracting core entities such as people, organizations, or dates. SAP HANA also classifies relationships among entities for sentiment analysis.

Text mining

Make semantic determinations about the overall content of documents relative to other documents. Use text mining functions to detect patterns, identify key terms, or categorize documents.


Perform full-text or fuzzy search much like you would when searching on the Internet to discover key information. Use a full-text index to pre-process text linguistically, using techniques such as tokenization, word stemming, and normalization.

Series Data Processing

Detect and forecast trends in data

Measure data over time to discover trends that can save you time and money. With SAP HANA series data processing, you can efficiently process large volumes of series data in conjunction with business data to assess business impact. Whether you are monitoring price fluctuations, season patterns, machine efficiency, energy consumption, or network flow, the ability to monitor data over time lets you discover and exploit patterns to your competitive advantage.
