Does SAP HANA integrates with CPLEX or GUROBI?

I have read several articles about SAP HANA, but none of them explain if is possible build/customize a mathematical model and solve it using GUROBI or CPLEX. Or even if SAP HANA can call extern routines and get the output back and then, process the data.

Thank for the information!

HANA doesn’t provide out-of-the-box integration with these 3rd party optimisation tools.

It actually comes with its own set of optimisation algorithms that can be used directly on data stored in HANA.

In order to leverage the mentioned 3rd party tools, one could, for example, write a wrapper function in the AFL SDK and call the external libraries that way.

Another option could be to read data out of HANA into the tools via JDBC/ODBC (if the tools support this).
