Huawei Receives SAP HANA Innovation Award

By Ken Briodagh May 31, 2017

In a recent release, Huawei announced that it has received an Honorable Mention in the Special Award category of the SAP HANA Innovation Awards 2017 at SAPPHIRE NOW, the largest SAP customer-run conference, held in Orlando, Florida. Huawei reportedly was honored with the award in recognition of its leadership and contribution toward the SAP HANA platform and technology solutions. Specifically, SAP presented the award for Huawei's RH5885H V3 appliance, which enabled Fonterra, the world's largest exporter of dairy products, to deploy an efficient financial and supply chain management system based on SAP HANA.

“Huawei is honored to receive this prestigious award from SAP,” said Qiu Long, President, Huawei IT Server Product Line. “Winning the SAP HANA Innovation Award is a testament to Huawei's technological prowess and strong commitment toward innovating with SAP HANA. It also highlights the strong relationship between Huawei, SAP and our partner ecosystem, and how we are determined to deliver the best solutions to customers like Fonterra.”

SAP HANA is an in-memory database platform that can be deployed on premise or in the cloud. It is designed to run transactional and analytical data in real-time. In 2016, Huawei and SAP teamed up with Datacom New Zealand to help Fonterra implement a scalable and efficient financial and supply chain management system. Using Huawei's RH5885H V3 appliance and SAP HANA at the core of the network, the solution delivered the ease and speed that Fonterra needed for real-time payment analysis, efficient account checking and insightful decision making. The RH5885H V3 appliance solution is unique in that it uses Huawei's ES3000 PCIe SSD card for SAP HANA database acceleration by three times.

“Looking forward, Fonterra is planning implement another joint solution from Huawei and Datacom that runs on SAP HANA,” said Andrew Faid, Technical Lead of SAP Projects, Global Information and Solutions Group, Fonterra. “The new solution will support critical decision making through 'agile' analytics for aggregating dynamic business data from multiple clouds and non-traditional sources.”
