“It has never been easier for the huge development communities using public clouds to experience the power of SAP HANA,” said Daniel Schneiss, senior vice president and global head of SAP HANA development, SAP. “SAP HANA, express edition, is designed so developers can quickly start building powerful data-driven applications that deliver unforeseen insights from live data, using their programming language of choice.
