In this paper we compare the prediction for deep inelastic scattering from N=4 SYM with the HERA experimental data. The paper conveys two results. The first is the message that N=4 SYM is able to describe the DIS data with very good accuracy (χ2/d.o.f. ≤ 1.5) in the region of Q2 = 0.85 ÷ 60GeV2 with 2/√λ = 0.7 ÷ 0.8. The second is that the value of string coupling constant gs turns out to be so small that none of saturation effects will be visible in the region of accessible energies, including the maximal energy of the LHC (W = 14 TeV).
