"SAP Hana is new way to manage big data at fast speed"

What do you like best?

I've been working for 2 years with this database, i liked that it can be easyly managed with sap hana studio, is a front end very easy to use, it gives you in time alerts of the health of the database, and you can manage the security of users with easy role-based and privilege system.

What do you dislike?

This database sometimes becomes with bugs if you don't have the lastest version, also it is a ram memory eater, depending of the process, you may need many memory ram for execute some processes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is the new generation of database, working as flash disks and with a capacity of hot warm and cold data, the querys and consults to it can be much faster and easy to use, they have improved and now you don't have to use the index version to improve tables just as you did before with other databases, it have to be considered that its a bit expensive and you need a good and strong appliance also you can implement it on cloud, but its worth it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've seen that when you have a big database with large data and some SQL custom and Z-program created for specific processes, they can become very slow and the time is lost in database consulting, with sap hana this had a big improve, starting because is a flash data with SSD Disks, also with cold warm and hot data, it can be accesed quickly.

"Future of SAP- S4 HANA"

What do you like best?

Performance of the database. Inline memory concept. The introduction of CDS views and Eclipse IDE has made the programming much easier. Eclipse IDE has lot of features which helps the programmers to code very easily. Improves many performance bottlenecks.

No need to worry about performance much while coding. All the logic which is present in the application layer now can be easliy pushed down to Database layer using the Cosh Push down strategies.

What do you dislike?

Old code needs to be re mediateded. Most of the code has to be pushed down to the database layer which means all the old standards need to be redesigned.

Most of the code has to be re written. Some of the concepts are no longer valid in HANA.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Future of SAP is S4 HANA

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reports which used to run for hours are executed within seconds with HANA.

Performance improvements for high volume reports.

Runtime of the Batch programs is reduced.

What Relational Databases solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"My experience with SAP Hana !"

What do you like best?

I like SAP Hana because I can recover my data very fast and easy. I can store my financial content or I can store both value-based and expository information. Another favourable position that I like too is that SAP HANA is good with different databases, for example, sql or mdx. Also it’s very simple to understand how it works.

What do you dislike?

The main minor issue is that SAP HANA is in memory just which implies that SAP HANA will stores every information in-memory. I figure you will discover SAP HANA somewhat confounded for not having the alternative to store the information in circles as well. For my situation I don’t like the in-memory innovation.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I can forward to you about SAP HANA, the numerous advantages that you will experience by conveying the in-memory database is colossal. On the off chance that you manage huge information then HANA is the arrangement uniquely in associations that arrangement with exchanges or some other investigation assignments, SAP HANA has ended up being one of the in-memory great databases.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My department provided some help to a group of customers where we gave SAP HANA support and we could help the customer by unravelling a few deterrents, for example, staying up with the latest the SAP HANA servers by fixing them and fix any bug we found in the way. The customer was performing business much dependable since it was a major customer they required SAP HANA. So I profoundly suggest HANA extraordinarily in you are in a major association where you manage huge information HANA is the approach.

"Good platform to increase the performance"

What do you like best?

I really like but is just not another database. Since we started. Using it in my department we increase the data load time x3. The SAP HANA solution offers high-quality customer service, even as data volumes increase.

The biggest benefits are real-time reporting and faster access. Despite some drawbacks such as the price, it means that the application is very useful and can generate great benefits in the company so do not hesitate to use it and implement it.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes is difficult to find people with the skills to manage it. Also is not cheap to implement it.

SAP HANA licenses are costly as of now. To attract more customers it should lower the license cost.

Also, the database has specific hardware requirement.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Offer different price plans to suit the budgets of different companies and their needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Sap Hana to analyze data in real time using volumes of specific dats.

"SAP HANA - Next Gen Product Suite with In-Memory Capabilities"

What do you like best?

SAP HANA can handle both OLTP and OLAP processing from a single data model, so there is no need to move transaction data to a separate system. Tables in SAP HANA are automatically compressed to enable you to store huge amounts of data within very little space.A key theme of SAP HANA is parallel processing. With the new hardware architecture, especially utilizing the new multi-core processors, it ensures instant responses by spreading out the processing tasks across the cores.SAP HANA is not just a database, it is also a powerful data processing engine with many built-in capabilities that can enable organizations to develop innovative applications integrating SAP S/4HANA.

What do you dislike?

Would take some time for business user to get used to the new interface. (Learning Curve)

Cost is another factor which is a point worth consideration

Recommendations to others considering the product

SAP HANA is far more than a database. It is an application and data management platform with a very large portfolio of capabilities that power the new innovative applications that require real-time, instant response and on any type of data regardless where the data resides in the organization.

SAP HANA takes full advantage of the recent trends in hardware evolution

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Native text-processing capabilities like Text search, text analysis and text mining.

"Investing to SAP HANAx"

What do you like best?

Hana is all about in memory computing which means that you get immediate real time results. This is because the data resides in the RAM. This feature is a great benefit for those who want super-fast results.

Hana has many advantages such as mass data, agility, total cost of ownership, any data type processing etc.

What do you dislike?

1) currently only one big maschine - which is not really perfect for HA scenarios ( in some documentation you can read about a distributed system - like BWA) - no docu tells me the truth about the HW architecture

2) no PITR (point-in-time recovery - user errors -> deleting data accidentally or something like that)

3) HA scenarios are not covered by SAP - vendors will be responsible (standby host(s)?)

4) no migration back to standard RDBMS, so SAP take your flexibility away ( no R3load export possible?)

5) xSystem copies - how they can be performed? (more interesting later for ERP systems)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Real-time decision making by bringing all enterprise data within the reach of decision makers in seconds to help you make smarter, faster, better decisions

Innovative new applications that combine high-volume transactions with analytics to dramatically improve planning, forecasting, and pricing optimization

"SAP HANA - data platform that increases the performance significantly"

What do you like best?

First of all it is important to know that HANA is a data platform, not just a database. It consists of calculation, spatial, graph, predictive, data quality, web, business rules and other engines that allows to do lots of customization performance wise. HANA can significantly increase the performance. For e.g. we have managed to increase the data load time by 120 times in HANA comparing with Oracle RDBMS. Once the specific query has been edited to meet HANA best practices we have managed to increase the data load by 9 times. So at the end the data load time for a specific query has increased more than 1000 times. The speed of data load gives a lot of opportunities to deal with high volume of data. This is one of the best feature of SAP HANA. Integration with SAP Business Objects.

What do you dislike?

SAP HANA is a modern tool and it is difficult to find qualified specialists to know how to customize SAP HANA correctly. It is also very expensive to implement SAP HANA. We use SAP HANA Revision 80 and we have serious problems with memory overload. Memory in HANA is keep growing and growing until it reaches its maximums and the system crashes. In order to avoid HANA to crash we need to restart HANA every week. According to the documentation, this issue has been solved in Revision 84. So it is important to update SAP HANA constantly that will require additional costs and time. If I would compare SAP HANA and Oracle RDBMS, then Oracle is a more stable environment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SAP HANA is used for exploring and analyzing all transactional and analytical data in real time. Our business users can analyze business operations in real-time using huge volumes of detailed information while business is happening.

"In Memory Computing is here to stay! "

What do you like best?

HANA is SAP's in-memory computing technology that provides an in memory database for fast data access and processing. Properties like faster data fetching, quick execution times, speedy access to external Apps make it a very useful technology.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing negative about the technology itself. The roll out of of this platform could have been done in a better way. The cloud integration of SAP has been slow as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

SAP is firmly sticking with in memory computing and making all of their processes compatible with in-memory computing. This essentially forces customers to migrate to HANA but the user experice in HANA is much better compared to the alternate. This is recommended for any SAP customer with large volumes of data that needs processing, reporting and analysis.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As the data volume grows, the conventional database based reports and processes tend to slow down. This negatively affects the year on year trend analysis and processes requiring multiple data fetch. HANA being in memory database virtually eliminates these issues. The data fetch is almost instantaneous and the processes run much faster.

"My experience with SAP HANA "

What do you like best?

The flexibility to easily retrieve data, the real time analytical capability. you can store both transactional and analytical data. you can continue increase the memory in case you ran out of memory because SAP HANA is built in memory it is very easy to keep amplifying the memory. Another advantage that I i like too is that SAP HANA is compatible with other databases such as SQL or MDX.

What do you dislike?

The only minor problem is that SAP HANA is in memory only which means that SAP HANA will stores all the data in-memory only but i don't think its a big deal but for those that found in-memory a little bit too much then I guess you will find SAP HANA a little complicated for not having the option to store the data in disks too. In my case I prefer the in-memory technology.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I will definitely recommend SAP HANA the many benefits that you will encounter by deploying the in-memory database is tremendous. If you deal with big data then HANA is the solution specially in organizations that deal with transactions or any other analytics tasks, SAP HANA has proved to be one of the in-memory best databases.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Me and my team were helping a client where we provided SAP HANA support and we were able to help the client by solving some obstacles such as keeping up to date the SAP HANA servers by patching them and fix any bug we found in the way. The client was performing business much reliable since it was a big client they needed SAP HANA in place to process all the analytical and transactional data and retrieve in real time data when needed, the benefit and the value that SAP HANA provide was so valuable and very rewarding in the end. So I highly recommend HANA specially in you are in a big organization where you deal with big data HANA is the way to go.

"SAP HANA really brings performance"

What do you like best?

I love the way it integrates with my BI tools (especially SAP BusinessObjects Explorer and SAP Lumira). Being able to provide users access to the enterprise KPI and let them drill down to the transaction detail has been very, very powerful for us.

What do you dislike?

The upfront expense is pretty high, but we've been able to pay it off in no time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

SAP HANA is as fast and powerful as advertised. Invest in training your data modelers, because the shift in mindset is difficult, but once it clicks they'll be off and running. And, with the new cloud interface and deployment options, testing it out is pretty painless.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our first use case was around supply cost for our operating rooms. In the 2 years since we've given analysts and operational leaders full, fast access to this data, we've saved $13 million.

"Simple and FAST"

What do you like best?

Query execution is the best part of HANA. They are pretty quick and we can push down most complex aggregating functions to database itself. This help in decreasing lot of time spend in writing the logic for handling the calculations.

What do you dislike?

The difference in open sql and native sql makes it little difficult to handle or write queries. As a ABAP developer or SQL developer, the developer would have used to writing open SQL,while SAP HANA would needs native SQl, which makes it little difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Better guidance or documentations helps most of the developers

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All the long running reports were revisited to make it faster and things get calculated on the fly. It does help in knowing the real time data and helps in making precise decisions.

What do you dislike?

the lak of use of external Databases , for migrating from an external Database yo have to user a midle DB such ass SYBASE to create a ver enviorment to migrate to SAP HANA

"Sizing is a Pain"

What do you like best?

This is one damn fast way to perform data access, and baking the business logic into the data source is a paradigm shift we have need for some time

What do you dislike?

WTF, on large implementation sizing. Between confusion between memory and storage requirements, and an idiotic model for sizing I don't think HANA has a sizinging model for huge data requirements., and it certainly does not seem to have the infrastructure support beyond 16 TB of data active hot data by the looks of it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just jump in, this is the future, but have a plan to handle your warm and cold data needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

HANA has very fast data access but when it comes to the bottom line, the main benefit is to be in lock step with the SAP trajectory to ensure main line support from the company

What do you like best?

The amazing performance for many workloads ensures that the user base can perform their tasks in a whole new way with greater abilities than in the past.

What do you dislike?

It's still not as mature as other database products, which is a given,. But the real drawback is the costs for workloads other than SAP.

Do not proceed to do this as a big bang, rolling out smaller units is necessary when using with S/4. Its a major change.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have begun a new era of advanced analytics and financial reporting due to HANA and the new S/4 technology.

"Hands on for SAP HANA XS SP12"

What do you like best?

The things that I like best are: first, parallel processing architecture - tested with a million rows load from csv in 11.6 seconds; second, workload push-down - sql script allows push down data-intensive application logic workload to db instead of fetch data to app server over network

What do you dislike?

I don't like the lack of open source option of the HANA XS. It will attract more developer to design their solution with this modern architecture if open source version is available.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Faster system response and much better data footprint by reducing the number of structures and transparent data tables

What do you dislike?

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Architected near-real time results determination solution for the major international awarding body"

What do you like best?

- Performance

- Transferable skills (SQL/JavaScript/ABAP for HANA)

- Polyglot storage capabilities

- Modelling abstractions

- Data federation/Virtualisation

- Phenomenal support for existing ABAP application, easy migration

What do you dislike?

- Stability - system can crash when overloaded with the complex calculation

- Resources management very basic

- Tooling still not most mature: debugging and testing still not most advanced

- Integration with Solution Manager and standard SAP environment processes proved to be problematic

- Lack of efficient mechanism for migration of reference data between environments,

Recommendations to others considering the product

- Consider sourcing options, some major integrators still lack skills, although they claim experience, most of it is in the context of BW on HANA, not easily transferable when developing custom applications, look for software engineering skills as a differentiator

- Consider your existing SAP landscape, especially in the context of UI, do not attempt to scope in too much in one go

- NetWeaver for HANA adds plentiful of capabilities making it easy to build custom functionality with existing skillset

- Consider security models, NetWeaver can help with that, as it provides seamless integration with the SAP security model, whereas built in HANA security does not integrate that easily

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Processing data near-real time as they arrive provides faster business and analytical cycles

- Significant reduction of errors in the process and elimination of costly rework through increased transparency of data dependent outcomes

It's pretty basic and user-friendly even though the GUI at first is not let you think that it is. It's also easy to reverse and change things that you've done without them being set up permanently.

"SAP HANA Review"

What do you like best?

I like the concept of putting the processing power where the data is and not in the application layer. Also, I like the fact that SAP's roadmap is to provide the capability to run most of its applications and modules on HANA Platform.

What do you dislike?

While the concept is very good, SAP HANA has its shortcomings. Its administration capabilities are catching up, but high availability, backup and recovery functions are still not on the same level as its competitors.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Before you commit to using SAP HANA, you must evaluate your needs, infrastructure and latest SAP HANA capabilities. If this is your mission critical system and high availability is of utmost importance, make sure you look at the SAP HANA's backup and recovery capabilities, as well as other administrative tasks that can affect your SAL with business users. Otherwise it is a good product with a lot of potentials.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The expectation from it are perhaps no different than any other innovation in technology space. I think it will continue to be in limelight till another 3-5 years and keep us engaged.

What do you dislike?

Prohibitively high cost. If you ask me what are the drawbacks for a Ferrari, technically I won't be able to point out much, except that its out of reach of most of the world population.

"SAP HANA for reporting is very detailed yet not quite user-friendly"

What do you like best?

SAP HANA is a very good tool to store data, especially financial and sales. It is kinda easy to start, you just drag and drop. You do not need any programming or coding experience to start. The reports are formatted automatically. You can perform easy Excel function in it as well.

What do you dislike?

Personally I come from SQL coding background. For me HANA is not flexible enough in terms of extracting data and aggregation. You need Business Object background to under the basic logic. Also, HANA is cloud based, so it's kinda slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good for biz analyst. You won't like it if you like coding or you are very used to coding. SAP should improve the reliability of the cloud. We failed twice after launch in a month. Reporting process is kinda slow too.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"SAP HANA for real time data in fastest speed that's possible today's world"

What do you like best?

1> Real time data

2> vast amount of storage in RAM

3> speed

4> quick analysis and decision support

What do you dislike?

1) currently only one big maschine - which is not really perfect for HA scenarios ( in some documentation you can read about a distributed system - like BWA) - no docu tells me the truth about the HW architecture

2) no PITR (point-in-time recovery - user errors -> deleting data accidentally or something like that)

3) HA scenarios are not covered by SAP - vendors will be responsible (standby host(s)?)

4) no migration back to standard RDBMS, so SAP take your flexibility away ( no R3load export possible?)

5) System copies - how they can be performed? (more interesting later for ERP systems)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. Transactional Analytics—in Real Time

2. This List of Remarkable Benefits

From the mouths of SAP execs, customers have been promised: The end of batch programs. A simplified DBA experience. Lower total cost of ownership. Dramatic landscape simplification. More functionality with less code

"A database on steroids "

What do you like best?

Not even considering any features Hana adds a huge advantage just in term of sheer development time saves for development team both on database side and application side as unit testing with full data set is a possibility as the time needed for a even non optimized query is lighting fast.

What do you dislike?

The standard hana studio which is the only tool available for development is sometimes unreliable, slow and not easy to use. Building a query using the tool is time consuming as it does not give tool tips or auto fill feature.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

What do you like best?

It's supposed to be fast and provide a small footprint. I like that, but haven't seen any benefit yet as we are just implementing S/4.

Also love the idea of having the database do the work instead of pulling data, than processing in memory (i.e. CPU intensive approach).

What do you dislike?

Lack of general knowledge on this new(er) technology among Developers. Cost is greater than any benefit I have seen to date.

SAP HANA Cloud Platform,the in-memory Platform-as-a-Service offering from SAP, enables customers and developers to build, extend, and run applications on SAP HANA in the cloud.

There are good reasons for the companies to go with the Cloud services. These are

Fast implementation time,Reduced IT efforts to maintain bot the Hardware and Software operations and maintenance is the provider's responsibility, Flexible due to subscription rather than licensing contracts,

scalability to support changing business needs.

What do you dislike?

SAP HANA is not a platform for loading, processing, and analyzing huge volumes – petabytes or more of unstructured data, commonly referred to as big data. Therefore, HANA is not suited for social networking and social media data analytics. But SAP has given the option to connect with the Big-data, Hadoop from it's last release of SP07.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Enterprises collect large volumes of structured data via legacy ERP, CRM, and other systems. One option to make use of this data is to extract, transform, and load subsets into a traditional enterprise data warehouse for analysis. This process is time-consuming and requires significant investment in related proprietary hardware.

SAP HANA offers enterprises a new approach to harnessing the value of all that corporate data. Its data replication and integration capabilities vastly speed up the process of loading data into the database. And because it uses in-memory storage, applications on top of HANA can access data in near-real time. HANA can also perform predictive analytics to help organizations plan for future market developments.
