/* What makes SAP HANA great? */

Why should you choose SAP HANA?  Here are a few samples of the powerful solutions you can create with a cloud based, built for in memory platform.

Predictive Analytics

Embed data mining predictive scenarios into your apps. Choose from over 20 different algorithms including association analysis, clustering for grouping, classification including regression, time series for forecasting, detection of outliers, and data preparation.

Text Search

Search content stored in tables or exposed via views within SAP HANA. You can either directly query data using SQL or use a client-side JavaScript API or build search UIs with SAP HANA Info Access.

Geospatial

Store, process and visualize geo data within SAP HANA. You can also perform operations like distance calculations and determine union and intersection of multiple objects. In addition, you can integrate geo-data with other structure and unstructured data.
