We are very happy to announce to our Portal Community that the SAP HANA Cloud Portal (formerly known as SAP NetWeaver Cloud Portal) is being released to customers and is generally available as of October 16, 2012. This solution is a significant enhancement to our product portfolio, further strengthening and broadening our current offerings.

The SAP HANA Cloud portal is a cloud-based solution that provides easy site creation and consumption with a superior user experience, and is designed for mobile consumption. The solution enables a secure and reliable integration with the customer's on-premise network for leveraging existing on-premise assets.

Cloud Portal Highlights are:

  • Runs on top of SAP HANA Cloud, a standards-based and modular platform-as-a-service solution for Java-based applications, hosted by the SAP public cloud
  • Built to operate with SAP HANA, for in-memory computing
  • Designed for mobile consumption, using HTML5 for dynamic adaptation to a range of different devices
  • Embraces industry technological standards
  • Leveraging existing on-premise investments and the consumption of OpenSocial-based content
  • Outstanding branding and customization capabilities
