HANA Oncolyzer

An interesting use case of technology for better health is HANA Oncolyzer at http://epic.hpi.uni-potsdam.de/Home/HanaOncolyzer

“Build on the newest in-memory technology the HANA Oncolyzer is able to analyze even huge amounts of medical data in shortest time”, says Dr. Alexander Zeier, Deputy Chair of EPIC. Research institutes and university hospital support from HANA Oncolyzer by building the basis for a flexible exchange of information about efficiency of medicines and treatments.

In near future, the tumor’s DNA of all cancer patients needs to be analyzed to support specific patient therapies. These analyses result in medical data in amount of multiple terabytes. “These data need to be analyzed regarding mutations and anomalies in real-time”, says Matthias Steinbrecher at SAP’s Innovation Center in Potsdam. As one of the aims the research prototype HANA Oncolyzer was developed at our chair in cooperation with SAP’s Innovation Center in Potsdam. “The ‘heart’ of our development builds the in-memory technology that supports the parallel analysis of million of data within seconds in main memory”, saysMatthieu Schapranow, Ph.D. cand. at the HPI.

and

research activities result in 500.000 or more data points per patient.
