How are analytics capabilities different coming from HANA, versus from the security solution itself?

Testoni: Analytics is tossed around. The capacity and speed of HANA's database in real-time … that's obviously next-generation on the analytics side. Then, you couple that with the development of really three or four key cartridges that fit in there and really drive it to the next generation of analytics: machine learning, AI, graph-link analysis, the ability to link people, places, things, and activities that may not be apparent to the human mind, geospatial. These are all cartridges that come inherent in HANA and why we're excited about this, not only in the cyber realm but in places like law enforcement and intelligence, where there is a need to relate things. What HANA has done and what real-time database has done is made it easier to develop the old data warehouse much more rapidly … It's ultimately about velocity and volume and validating the data. What's changing is if you start looking at this, are we going to be able to more rapidly identify threats as they enter the space? Or can we predict activity that might be threats? These are the things that are coming in the future.
