An in-memory database that will accelerate your ABAP programs

Reviewed on 2022/04/18

Pros

It has a learning curve from an ABAP developer standpoint, but once you know your way around them it is a very powerful tool. The introduction of CDS and its execution within HANA will allow you to create complex data models easily and the extraction of the data is lightning fast compared to previous iterations of the SAP application that used other databases.

Also, using it on cloud will make it easier to work with the database as you don't have to worry about the high end hardware requirements.

Cons

I don't have any complains about the performance from S/4, but I've heard colleagues mention that analytics don't always perform as promised/expected.

SAP Hana allows you to drill down into the data and get really granular by going to the individual transactions. Interfacing with Tableau and Excel gives you the ability to take the data and create some visualizations that can tell a story to leadership and decision makers.

Pros

I love that this software easily interfaces with Tableau, Excel, etc. We deal with hundreds of thousands of lines of data so it is important to be able to interface with other applications.

Cons

Sometimes the connection between SAP Hana and our other applications becomes unstable so we have downtime where we can't use it.

frustrating and very slow to learn and easy to forget when you don't use regularly.

Pros

The reporting functionality seems powerful, but very hard to get quality data into the system to report.

Cons

Not a single screen I have come across from purchaings, to time sheeting to project management (EPPM) can be navigated or used without specialist training. It is completely unintuitive to use, with standard OK or Cancel buttons randomly appearing in different locations, no limits to the size of drop boxes, obscure acronyms and crazy numbering systems with alpha numeric codes often having 3, 4,5 or 6 zeros in the middle and no two codes will have the same length - some are 9-digit, some 6 and some are 5-digit.

Overall this software has been a good option for the company running on SAP ERP. The process of loading the data to warehouse has been faster in HANA cloud than other tools

Pros

The best thing about this application is it is on the cloud, which has saved a big in maintenance costs. The Data extraction of the data for reporting from this application is very fast.

Cons

Compared to other competitor tools like Azure or Snowflake. This seems to be little expensive. The only least thing about the software

SAP has always been good when trying to emulate your needs as a company to an ERP. All the configuration, Z programs and setups are so broad that you can practically do anything with SAP, but switching to HANA was mostly to take advantage of it's new database and the cloud option.

Pros

With SAP HANA we are moving to the future of our company switching from the previous version SAP ECC. This new system has improved from the last version specially when reporting. Becuase all fields are indexed, extracting info and running reports are really fast and some fixing in the security side has solved problems of roles and object we had before.

Cons

The Business partner transaction "BP" is something I still don't understand its reasoning. The complications of having customer, suppliers, employees, contacts, etc in one single transaction has complicated things for us but I guess is just matter of getting acquainted to it.

Overall, SAP HANA Cloud is one of the most powerful database options in the market. If a company can afford it, it will definitely be value for money.

Pros

As a SAP Consultant, I have had the opportunity to work with various database options. In the SAP ecosystem, the two major database options for SAP ERP's are Microsoft SQL server and SAP HANA. My opinion is, Microsoft SQL server has nothing on SAP HANA. SAP HANA is an in memory database, a feature that makes it very fast and gives it ability to support multitudes of data without slowing down the system.When it comes to Data analysis options, SAP HANA is way much better that Microsoft SQL. It gives you the ability to view your data summary in dashboards and KPIs, helping you makes better decisions in a timely fashion. Searching within a SAP HANA database is google like, helping you find the much needed information very quickly.SAP HANA Cloud can be integrated with Excel so data can be pulled from the database and viewed in Excel to make further analysis to the data, considering that most users are more familiar with Excel.

Cons

SAP HANA is expensive and has a steep learning curve to successfully implement and manage. It is therefore not a viable option for smaller companies.

I work with SAP HANA on the daily in order to perform ad hoc investigations and it works perfectly. All our data sources, schemas, models, and repositories are there. Plus it's integrated with our SAP business operations.

Pros

I like that HANA is very easy to use for navigation or development purposes alike. HANA allows for the creation of materialized views which speeds up performance a LOT

Cons

In some cases, literally if you don't have a materialized view it's impossible to preview a model without it taking over 10+ mins to query on ONE single object. The issue is that, materialized views are a transaction and cost storage. To me, MVs shouldn't have to cost extra.

Reviewed on 2018/12/13

Pros

The amount of possibilities of implementations using SAP Hana Cloud Platform is enormous. I consider it as a must-have for enabling the steady growth of a company.

Cons

The SAP prices are high - not only in terms of using the system, but mostly in terms of any developments - Business Process Architects are highly demanded on market which makes it pricey to develop new functions (IT as well), but the highest price is the consultants, especially from SAP. This all sums up to a very high cost for a great software.
