Like most organizations, you’ve probably invested heavily in your SAP environment. Protecting this investment means ensuring that the underlying infrastructure supporting your landscape is state-of-the-art, including the database and servers that support running SAP applications. Do you know if your technology is up to the task?

Join this webinar to hear directly from Bloor Research’s Philip Howard, who will explore the challenges facing SAP customers today, how they are solving them, and which technology decisions help organizations drive the optimum value from their technology infrastructure. You’ll learn about different types of in-memory databases and discover the truth about the impact of data compression on performance. This leading industry analyst will also evaluate IBM’s latest database software and server offerings (IBM DB2 with BLU Acceleration running on IBM Power System servers) for data warehouse and analytics workloads, including those from SAP.

Topics include:

  • Top factors to consider when formulating a data strategy and choosing the right technology architecture to support it
  • How to ensure scalable system architecture
  • How data organization and memory usage can speed application processing
  • How the integration of DB2 BLU with Power Systems servers provides a strong platform for data warehouses and analytical applications

This session will cover in-depth discussion of database technologies and hardware systems supporting SAP applications. IBM’s SAP Subject Matter Experts will also be available to answer questions during a live Q&A immediately following the presentation.
