An elegant new platform for real time analytics and packages, SAP HANA has helped with big data

  • April 03, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
1.Instead of keeping only 'useful data' in memory, we can now keep 'all the data' in memory.
2.Also, this helps greatly in real-time insights from transaction systems including custom or SAP ERP This covers income Reporting (improving fulfillment rates and accelerating key income tactics), monetary Reporting (instant insights throughout revenue, clients, accounts payable, and so on.), delivery Reporting (higher allowing whole inventory review evaluation), purchasing Reporting (whole actual-time analysis of entire order records) and master records Reporting (actual-time capacity to effect productiveness and accuracy).
3.Predictive and textual content analysis on huge records
4. BW clients can run their entire BW software at the SAP HANA platform main to unparalleled BW performance
What do you dislike?
1. No point-in-time recovery - user errors -> deleting data accidentally
2. Insanely expensive (But with the speed comes the cost)
3. No migration back to standard RDBMS, so SAP take your flexibility away
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Mainly used for real time data analytics for large structured data in my firm.
The biggest limitation of any open-source batch-oriented processing solutions such as Hadoop is they can’t easily process data in real-time which is done by SAP HANA.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
It is a progressive platform that’s satisfactory suited for performing actual-time analytics, and growing and deploying actual-time applications. This is essentially exclusive than every other database engine on the market today.

I have implemented SAP HANA for two clients

  • April 03, 2019
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
The best thing about SAP HANA is it's in memory access due to which we can retrieve our data at a faster rate. SAP HANA uses cloud technology which is more secure and helps to reduce hardware space and cost. Heavy reports are run smoothly due to in-memory technology.
What do you dislike?
I did not find any problem in SAP HANA although cost is something that I would like to emphasize on. The cost to implement to SAP HANA is maximum as compared to other ERP(Enterprise Resource Planning). The reports are too normal as compared with Oracle.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
SAP can solve enterprise problem by integrating your enterprise data into one software.

A tool par excellence for professional environments

  • March 28, 2019
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
One of the advantages of SAP is its flexibility. SAP allows my company to create its own rules within the SAP structure.
Companies determine which employees can access each zone in the SAP environment.
Only authorized personnel receive access to personal data, such as salaries.
SAP also has the flexibility to integrate your data with different databases.
What do you dislike?
One disadvantage of SAP is the high cost of purchasing and implementing the program.
The company must buy the necessary software and hardware to run the programs throughout the company.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Integration without problems, only the period of time was extended more than previously planned to make it work in my department. It analyzes in a very short time and presents a configuration that has changed little with time, with a sober and professional aspect.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Scalable software, that is, it offers the possibility of adapting to future changes, both technological and business processes, in such a way that the organization can grow efficiently, for medium or large companies.

Migration from Oracle Database to SAP HANA

  • March 27, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The best part is improvement in the application / database processing speed and stability. There are others features as well which cannot be ignored - Parallel Processing, in memory storage, transaction consistency and No-SQL storage (i.e. storing data column wise)
What do you dislike?
It follows specific hardware guidelines which makes installation more expensive and cost effective. There are few other limitations or dislikes about SAP HANA like Skilled resources are required to work with SAP HANA, lack of quality data. Let me share one scenario where the server hosting the SAP HANA suddenly went down. There was a MIM (Incident Management Bridge ) call to understand the cause of the issue. Further after investigating the cause of the issue, it was found that due to multiple calculations running at the same time , system got heated up and fail-safe mechanism triggered in & server went down. Also, frequent patches are released, so we need to update the patches very frequently.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Our client has multiple SAP applications running on Oracle database which is not up to the mark. Biggest challenge is upgrading the SAP applications on Oracle database. So in order to fix this, we need to migrate the SAP applications like ERP etc to SAP HANA Cloud.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If anyone of you using any SAP application, then migrate it to SAP HANA for faster data processing.

SAP HANA new Generation Database

  • March 21, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
SAP HANA is the latest, in-memory database, and platform which can be deployed on-premises or cloud. SAP HANA is a combination of hardware and software, which integrates different components like SAP HANA Database, SAP SLT (System Landscape Transformation) Replication server, SAP HANA Direct Extractor connection, and Sybase replication technology.
What do you dislike?
Implementation and Initial Cost is very high.
Lack of quality data on the Hana database - the same data that existed on the ERP system now resides on Hana. If the data itself is not governed well, the resulting output is not reliable.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Run time analytics, This feature is a great benefit for those who want super-fast results. This is because the data resides in the RAM. It is highly secured. Very fast computing speed.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
SAP HANA (high-performance analytic appliance) is an application that uses in-memory database technology that allows the processing of massive amounts of real-time data in a short time. The in-memory computing engine allows HANA to process data stored in RAM as opposed to reading it from a disk. This allows the application to provide instantaneous results from customer transactions and data analyses.

What do you dislike?
Since there are multiple certified hardware vendors having their own hardware limitations is restricting HANA to be utilized to its full potential.
Industry is not able to take full advantage of HANA since the applications are designed based on legacy DB architecture.
Troubleshooting and performance tuning are not straight forward or mature as Oracle.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
SAP HANA has been used as a datamart for realtime reporting
Used as side-car for ECC
