Data Management

The Internet of Things (IoT) has taken software development to new levels and with the many points of contact it provides creates a myriad of opportunities and, of course, challenges. The number of developers working on IoT applications are consistently increasing as businesses across industries recognize the value of such apps and search for new ways to keep ahead of their competitors. In the past, SAP SQL Anywhere has operated as an embeddable database option for mobile devices, but the upsurge of IoT has seen constant evolution of this product and the latest version delivers ‘mission-critical services to Internet of Things systems and data-intensive apps.’

Managing the Data

The number of Internet of Things devices and applications being managed today is prodigious, and Gartner estimates that by 2020 we’ll have 25 billion connected devices. This will undoubtedly provide many positive gains for our day to day personal and business lives, but it’s easy to feel overwhelmed when considering the massive volumes of data collected and sent off by each one these devices. Due to the processing, sharing, and analysis requirements of data, it’s become essential to implement effective Database Management systems to help developers structure new builds and manage applications going forward.

For developers building database-powered IoT applications, data management, synchronization, and data exchange technologies are essential to swift design, build, and deployment. Moreover, database management software ensures data is synchronized across mobile devices and remote offices meaning that vital data can be accessed from countless locations at any time. Working together with SAP HANA or SAP Business Suite software, SAP SQL Anywhere offers data management and collection solutions for mobile and remote environments through data synchronization technology that helps ensure transactions are replicated between the enterprise and remote devices in a consistent and scalable manner. Deployments consisting of tens of thousands of devices can be carried out, involving complex operations over the long term with zero data loss. Furthermore, because SAP HANA provides communication via satellite locations organizations are now able to collect and access data from locations with only intermittent connections or low bandwidths. Thanks to smart and secure synchronization for both on-premise and cloud systems, along with always-on and always-available operations, organizations benefit from reduced downtown and improved data protection encryption and data isolation.

Secure & Always On Solutions

When considering the volume of data flowing into and out of our connected devices a primary concern is security. Countless data breaches have come to light in recent times, and due to the often highly private nature of data, it’s essential that data management systems provide the necessary level of security. Customized mobile and IoT applications certainly have their advantages, but when controlling and synchronizing data across numerous IoT systems, mobile devices, and remote environments, it’s essential that the chosen data management solution is able to provide secure and reliable processes when required. SAP SQL Anywhere manages these needs through data protection encryption and data isolation and allows intelligent devices to connect to the enterprise securely while collecting data reliably and safely delivering it into the SAP HANA platform for consolidation and analysis. The strong encryption capabilities of SAP SQL Anywhere ensure data is protected and secured even during transmission and exchange.

For professionals needing progressive and reliable SQL database solutions, SAP SQL Anywhere provides an extensive range of tools and features able to create data-drive applications for remote operation, collection, and aggregation of massive amounts of data generated by IoT devices and applications, flexible, standards-based platforms, and much more. And due to increased developer productivity and optimized performance and availability, developers are able to swiftly release new applications and accurately monitor them going forward, thus ensuring businesses make the most of today’s IoT opportunities while surmounting the relevant challenges.
