SAP Startup Forum – Venice

13 Lug 2014

With the Big Data market expected to reach $48 billion in 2017 and venture funding crossing $2.5 billion in Big Data companies, Big Data is no longer a “fad” but a reality facing many businesses. Along with emerging new trends like the Internet of Things, wearable computing, etc., Big Data is disrupting existing organizational business models and heralding a new era in computing and intelligence. This rapidly growing market is a tremendous opportunity for startups with unique solutions developed on a flexible and scalable high performance platform.


We are bringing together experts and speakers who will help shape the discussion around the needs and gaps in the industry and where Big Data is heading.


We are looking for promising startups interested in exploring and developing solutions on top of the enterprise application platform, SAP HANA.By handling massive volumes of structured and unstructured data entirely in its in-memory database, SAP HANA enables applications and analytics to execute data intense operations right where data resides. In doing so, SAP HANA helps customers to achieve performance improvements of up to 100,000 times compared to traditional, disk-based databases while running non-disruptively alongside the existing technology landscape.Learn more on SAP HANA.
