Cache

It's definitely great for medical industries that need the vast amounts of features/security/performance, however if you need something simple then this would be too much. There is a learning curve, and if you come from more common database technologies, then there will be a lot of differences to handle. Simple database needs would be better fulfilled elsewhere, but Cache is for when you need to take the next step, whether that be in the volume, complexity, or security of ETL.

SAP HANA

SAP HANA has been incredibly helpful in moving forward with real-time BW reporting. Users no longer need to wait for the analytics they need but are able to generate their reporting instantly. In addition, within the finance module, it has allowed our users to run multiple processes at once shortening the time to complete their business activities, especially during the close cycle.

SAP HANA

  • In-memory computation - resolve all slow performance issues to great extent.
  • Column storage - reduce memory footprint and cost of hardware.
  • Agile and quick development reduced development efforts significantly.

Cons

Cache

  • Popularity should be better, after so many years.

SAP HANA

  • Personally I believe the UI could be much more compact and I see improvement areas.
  • Mobile application and desktop are very different.
  • Sometimes you need type-in help on mouse hover for faster input and selection.
  • Now HANA is going cloud where data and security becomes a concern for larger companies. We want to see a benchmark company in manufacturing domain with such a large retail presence. I see there are areas for improvement in that.

At this moment we are not focusing on SAP, however would love to in the future. This is primarily because of our limited ability to generate more revenue to fund for SAP partnerships and products. Our initial tryst with SAP Partneredge open ecosystem didn't go as planned and we have shelved that for now. Hope we can revive in the future

The support portal is fairly easy to navigate and always available. Sometimes I can find what I need by just reading the documentation or SAP community blog posts. If I have to open a ticket I have always had good quality service and the issue was eventually resolved. The support could be improved by providing faster responses.

Alternatives Considered

Cache

I've only worked with products that do one thing before, but there's so much that Cache offers versus piecing different services together manually. Not only does the product offer a more robust tool-set, but the support is wonderful and I've never encountered a better vendor in any industry in terms of how well they interact with their customers and care about helping you solve your problems. They want you to grow and to get better.

I have used Teradata which is a row-level storage database. It was slow in reporting data from the table. Then we moved to HP Vertica which was a columnar storage but it doesn't support procedure. Now we are using SAP HANA, which is excellent as it has in-memory data storage and returns the results fast.

  • Since implementing HANA we have been able to save several million dollars a year in operating room supplies ($9 million last fiscal year).
  • It has allowed us to improve our processes to save $1 million dollars in our Laboratory Services
