Come to the SAP Startup Forum for a day of collaboration, learning and networking with like-minded leaders focused on analytics and big data trends and technologies.

We're bringing together experts and speakers who will help shape the discussion around the needs and gaps in the industry and where big data is heading. We are looking for promising startups interested in exploring and developing solutions on top of the enterprise application platform SAP HANA. By handling massive volumes of structured and unstructured data entirely in its in-memory database, SAP HANA enables applications and analytics to execute their data intense operations right where data resides. In doing so, SAP HANA helps customers to achieve performance improvements of up to 100,000 times compared to traditional, disk-based databases while running non-disruptively alongside the existing technology landscape. Learn more on SAP HANA ( This will also be an opportunity for select startups to exhibit their solutions (see past event pictures ( What' s in the program for you?
