SAP supports University of Queensland transport research

By

SAP ANZ is providing the University of Queensland with a SAP HANA in-memory database system for a research and development project.

A R&D project at the University of Queensland entitled ‘In-memory moving objects analytics for real-time business applications’ is being funded with a $450,000 grant from the Australian Research Council and a further $210,000 from SAP in addition to a 1TB SAP HANA in-memory database system.

The project is aimed at the development of an in-memory approach to processing large quantities of data for applications such as fleet management solutions using GPS devices, smart-phone applications utilising on-board sensors and intelligent transportation systems.

The goals are dramatic reductions in operational cost, increased safety, enhanced fleet productivity, and the ability to offer specialised and targeted services to customers who want to find and book the best services for specific transportation needs.

University of Queensland professor of computer science Xiaofang Zhou said "The SAP HANA technology will provide our researchers with the computing power they need in order to analyse their large experimental datasets."

SAP vice president, strategic customer engagement, products and innovation Wasim Sadiq said "The deployment of the 1TB SAP HANA platform to support this joint project with the University of Queensland is a strong testament to the capabilities of our technology, as well as affirming SAP's commitment to R&D in Australia."
