KIO Networks HANA On Demand and Big Data Innovation Solutions

What key business, technical, and data challenges did our organization face and how we did solution help to resolve them?At KIO, over the years we had detected within the market and customers experiences, that an exponential unplanned growth in transactional databases (structured and non-structured data) and associated systems have complicated data models, architectures and infrastructure needs, including all complex data/image controls, security and IT service management, and how enterprise or customer should address reporting, KPI´s, data calculations, analysis and end-user presentation. As variety of data sources where growing in volume within companies, customers, sources and formats, it caused severe latency issues, data once generated from transactions gets replicated to several locations for consolidations and reporting, avoiding users to be able to analyze or take decisions (causing weeks or months to aggregate and consolidate). This not only increases the risk of data management, such as security, privacy & availability, as more data get dispersed, higher the complexity and risk for users and customers. Resulting in IT and consulting firms to provide solutions to create BI DB´s processing for various end systems, datawarehousing or BI´s for analytics. This proliferations of data through various stages and processes has significantly increased latency, resources and resulting in slow response and IT complex environments. As data from different sources or formats is simultaneously pushed to the users, it results in usability issues. So we are happy for all achievements! Here you have the list:

  • What kind of business value does our solution deliver? Consider both qualitative and quantitative measuresAccording KIO currents customer’s needs, in Mexican and Latina America markets, which goes from financial, media customers to healthcare, distribution and consumer industry requirements, the value driver and opportunities detected by our management and sales teams, a common uncover answers need to be achieved for complex business questions faster than ever before in data management– Real Team Data Analytics!!!

  • With KIO´s platform and solutions, we are now able to meet customer Big-Data and real time analysis challenges for different industries, complex industry architectures needs (ex: any system or data source, business analytic models, roles head-on with scenario-driven, role-based solutions), in order to help customer to transform their business by delivering a new breed of real-time Big Data models with KIO SAP HANA platform, applied analytics and rapid deployment options (SAP RDS´s, BW and DB runtime migrations) that help us to engage with C-Level stakeholders, visualize business challenges and help them to predict what’s next with real-time insights - “Technology that allows the processing of massive quantities of real time data in the main memory of the server to provide immediate results from analyses and transactions”.

  • Why SAP HANA? What specific features of HANA did we use and how did it may impact our customers IT architecture? – As previous point, KIO networks, as IT expert providing breakthrough solutions to our customers, we decided to challenge our self’s as an innovation IT provider, so we made the decision integrating SAP as strategic partner for our cloud (ERP, CRM, SCM, BI, etc), in memory-computing and analytics solutions. We chose to integrate SAP HANA to our portfolio. Being the first company in Mexico and Latina America with implementing IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, Kloud and virtualizating clouds, with a changing market where computer systems have increased number of processing cores with large integrated caches, main memory space has become practically unlimited with the ability to hold all the business data of enterprises of every size. These technology changes has make prices fall and moved computing processing from Disk/SSD to In-Memory. Memory access is 1M – 10M times faster than disk. Disk-centric computing was also one of the major factors that forced separation of transactional and analytical workloads. Moving data to various locations was necessary for reporting to circumvent network issues. Pre-processing of data then became the necessity to optimize linear data transfers. We do not have to live with those limitations any more. Feasibility is given. Through advances in data sciences combined with relevant hardware trends, SAP is leading the real-time computing revolution… leveraging the power of in-memory computing to bringing  OLAP and OLTP back together in one database. This transforms how we construct business applications and our expectations in consuming them. Adopting this new technology will sharpen your competitive edge by dramatically accelerating not only data querying speed but also business processing speed.
