    SAP has already quite a number of solutions in the IoT space. For general information, I recommend using the search engine of your preference. In case your question is indeed more specific, please help us helping you by being a lot more specific in your question text.

      We have developed in-built IOT platform (this is not SAP IOT platform) where we are using SAP HANA as persistent provider for iot data, we would like to explore what are the analytics solution available from SAP HANA in this scenario. The most of IOT data comes in JSON format from smart devices to IOT platform which gets stored in HANA NCLOB fields. So would like to know if SAP HANA has any solution for these this type of storage.

      Let me know if you need more info.

    With the current (SPS12) release of SAP HANA, there are no native/built-in functions to deal with JSON data. If I'm not mistaken the next version of SAP HANA (to be announced later this month) will have some features in this area.

    As a general comment: using SAP HANA as a 'dumb datastore' seems expensive. SAP HANA provides specialised features that prove to be immensely helpful with many IoT scenarios. There are time series storage and analytics, predictive algorithms and R integration as well as support for data stream processing, virtual data integration and data life-cycle management.

    Most of these features though expect the data to be 'unpacked' into tables/columns.

    So, how about you check up on the mentioned options and if you have further questions feel free to post them, too?
