Data Processing

Gain new insights to run your business smarter and faster.

Leverage SAP HANA in-memory, advanced data processing capabilities to build more intelligent applications that provide insights across all your data – structured or unstructured - at unprecedented speed. 

Text Analytics and Search

Gain faster, broader insight from text.

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

Learn about text analysis

Use file filtering to analyze text in unstructured documents.  When text is processed, SAP HANA applies linguistic markup to give structure to core entities (such as people, organizations, or dates) discovered in the text. It also classifies relationships among entities for sentiment analysis.
