Smart Data Streaming, a powerful real-time stream analytics capability of SAP HANA, is now available in HCP. This service gives you the ability to analyze and act on streams of incoming events. Use it in conjunction with HCP IoT Services to analyze incoming device data, turning raw messages into useful information.
Key features of HCP smart data streaming:
Allows application developers to quickly and easily define streaming projects that transform raw input streams into useful information
Design times tools in the SAP HANA Studio
High performance: process thousands or hundreds of thousands of messages per second with typical latency of 1-5 milliseconds
Common use cases:
Analyze incoming data in real-time. Watch for trends, patterns or other conditions - generate alerts or initiate an immediate response
Compare incoming data to expected data and historical data
Filter, sample or aggregate incoming data to reduce the amount of data being stored in the HANA database
Transform or enrich incoming such that it conforms withe desired data model
Beyond IoT, smart data streaming can be used to process and analyze streams of messages from virtually any source. A range of interfaces and adapters are available.
To get started using Smart Data Streaming in HCP:
Contact your SAP team to get smart data streaming added to your HCP account. Note that smart data streaming is a service of the SAP HANA platform, so having a suitable HANA instance in your account is a pre-requisite
Once your account team have added the smart data streaming subscription to your HCP account, follow the instructions in the Smart Data Streaming documentation for adding smart data streaming to your HANA system, adding the design time tools to HANA Studio (or Eclipse with HANA plugin), and setting up user permissions.
