HANA allows data analysts to query large volumes of data in real-time. HANA's in-memory database infrastructure frees analysts from having to load or write-back data. HANA's columnar-based data store is ACID compliant and supports industry standards such as structured query language (SQL) and multi-dimensional eXpressions (MDX).

HANA also includes a programming component that allows a company's IT department to create and run customized application programs on top of HANA, as well as a suite of predictive, spatial and text analytics libraries across multiple data sources. Because HANA can run in parallel to a source SAP ERP application, analysts can access real-time operational and transactional data and not have to wait for a daily or weekly report to run.
SAP HANA can be deployed on-site as an appliance or purchased as a managed cloud or hybrid- cloud service. SAP HANA was previously called SAP High-Performance Analytic Appliance.
