In last couple of years, SAP HANA is adopted by so many big companies and organizations,

SAP HANA 2 would be released as a continuation of SAP HANA which is enhanced with new revolutionizing features.
With SAP HANA 2, data could be accessed from almost any source, the new platform is optimized for offering agility with innovation.
New algorithm for machine learning would help an organization to identify patterns which could offer analytical intelligence while processing text, spatial data, graph and streaming data. New algorithms for classification, association, time series and regression are included to the predictive analysis library to empower data scientists. New "active/active-read enabled" option is introduced to leverage secondary systems which would make the workload management better and ensure high availability. New edition of SAP Enterprise Architecture Designer Web application is offered with the platform to manage complex information architectures. Moreover, application developers can build apps with own language support on the new SAP HANA 2 platform. A new file processor API is enabled to get a better insight of documents by retrieving text and metadata.
Not just above mentioned additions and enhancements, another one which could be one of the most promising features is the provision of leveraging microservices in the cloud to embed advanced analytics. As for example, using earth observation analysis microservice, feeding geo data captured from satellites would be possible to applications to gain better insight on data.
Earth observation microservice is one of the two microservice categories which would be offered initially, the other one is text analysis which would enable text data processing in the cloud with the help of natural language processing.
