[Singapore] SAP Startup Forum: Big Data will disrupt existing business models

Big Data will herald a new era in computing and intelligence. Jumpstart your journey in Big Data analytics with SAP Startup Forum!

With the Big Data market stated to explode to US$48 billion in 2017 from US$11.6 billion in 2012, and venture funding crossing US$2.5 billion in such companies, Big Data is no longer a fad, but a reality facing many businesses as they strive to stay competitive in this data- and mobile-centric market.

Along with emerging new trends like the Internet of Things and wearable computing, Big Data is stated to disrupt existing business models of organisations, and herald a new era in computing and intelligence. For startups, this represents a tremendous opportunity to ride this wave now with the right product, right market and right platform to base the product on.

Here, SAP is pleased to present the Startup Forum, an event for startup firms to explore the Big Data phenomenon, spot the industry trends, as well as learn about SAP’s Big Data platform SAP HANA. It will also throw light on how to make powerful applications that can transform businesses.

SAP’s HANA Big Data Analytics platform provides users with a single, high velocity, in-memory computing platform, accelerating the running of analytics applications. Its 100 per cent native in-memory column store is optimised for business functions, predictive analytics and text analytics libraries, leveraging common industry standards to deliver blazingly fast analytics (OLAP) performance directly against large volumes of transactional data (OLTP), in-memory and in real-time.

The SAP Startup Forum will be held in five cities across Asia, namely Jakarta (Indonesia), Singapore, Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Taguig City (Philippines), and Hong Kong.
