Let’s take a few steps back. We are all very busy. We barely have time to do our primary tasks, let alone look forward and plan a few steps ahead. For me, evaluating a new technology is always something I worry about, especially when it comes to enterprise-scale software. Getting started setting up the necessary hardware, installation, and configuration all require time I do not have. Furthermore, there’s always something that goes wrong. Always.

Why is this relevant? SAP released a powerful in-memory database in 2012 that has become a game changer. It enables dramatically accelerated analytics, business processes, predictive analysis, and sentiment data processing – all on a single in-memory computing platform. This is exactly the platform businesses need today to stay competitive and leverage the latest and greatest technology available. SAP collaborated with CloudShare to deliver this ground-breaking new technology to developers, so you can explore SAP HANA immediately. You don’t need to install or configure anything to get started. It only takes 60 seconds to get your environment on this platform up and running, including SAP HANA Studio Developer Edition. You can use it all in the cloud, or use a local installation and connect to the cloud. You can collaborate with your colleagues, backup your work, and ultimately deploy to production when you are ready.

How does this magic happen? Using cloud-based technology SAP has enabled complete SAP HANA environments in the cloud. You can access your instance in less than a minute. It’s simple. Powerful. Efficient.

To see for yourself, we’ve prepared a short video to show you the process. The truth is that it will probably take you more time to watch the video than it will to spin up your SAP HANA environment! Check it out for yourself today: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-zTU0DesKM
