The announcement was made at the SAP TechEd conference, being held September 25-29 in Las Vegas.
'It has never been easier for the huge development communities using public clouds to experience the power of SAP HANA,' said Daniel Schneiss, senior vice president and global head of SAP HANA development, SAP. 'SAP HANA, express edition, is designed so developers can quickly start building powerful data-driven applications that deliver unforeseen insights from live data, using their programming language of choice. We will continue to expand cloud options for SAP HANA, offering developers the flexibility to choose the cloud platform that they prefer.'
With thousands of developers already using SAP HANA, express edition, since its introduction in September 2016, this offering has become a popular choice for application developers seeking to process a wide variety of data and algorithms in memory. They are using the express edition to build smart applications and analytics solutions that can uniquely combine transactional and advanced analytical processing on a single copy of data from anywhere.
