SAP HANA Cloud

Best suited for enterprise-scale spatial data management and analysis, where multiple spatial systems or databases exist in silos.Too expensive for project level analysis and lacks advanced spatial analysis tools as well as support for more spatial data formats for ingestion.

SAP SQL Anywhere

SAP SQL Anywhere is better than not using a database, let's be clear there! However, I wouldn't pick it as my first or even second or third choice. I'd recommend looking at other options. Largely, it appears less powerful both in terms of its robustness and general performance and in its implementation of SQL. The standard Sybase utilities provided are lacking in basic features, and the interactive SQL utility is quite horrendous. However, the great thing is it is an ODBC-compliant SQL-compliant relational database.

Pros

SAP HANA Cloud

  • If required, SAP S/4HANA may be installed and configured on the cloud.
  • Because of the simplification of functionality, IT personnel may be able to devote more of their time and resources to delivering services rather than doing maintenance tasks.
  • Assist businesses in making better decisions about their operations by providing better information.
  • SAP HANA is a superb web solution with advanced remote data synchronization capabilities that is very quick and easy to use.

SAP SQL Anywhere

  • Good performance with relatively large data sets - its cost-based query optimizer is particularly robust
  • ANSI SQL compliant
  • Supports T-SQL
  • Scales well between the desktop (single user) and client/server installations supporting 50-1000 users

Cons

SAP HANA Cloud

  • Better workload management - de-prioritize long running queries.
  • Better scheduling and monitoring platform for XSA jobs. Built-in scheduler.
  • Dependency analyzer like the one for CDS views for Calculation views.
  • UI development options like ASAP selection screen for simple use cases.
  • Built-in table editor.

SAP SQL Anywhere

  • I think it should be more user friendly for non-technical users.
  • More functional functionalities should be added to the object explore when working with a table to transform data/manipulate data.

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

In addition to the points described in the previous parts of the review, I believe that as I gain more experience with the product over time, I will be able to better describe my experience with this tool. Meanwhile, I can confirm that the possibilities presented to my organization by the change to SAP HANA, at the moment, have been very important to evolve the analytical and strategic field towards a new path.

SAP HANA is the best in the current market. The price point is competitive at the moment despite its level. It integrates well with other applications across geographies as well as multiple data sources. Its predictive analytics function really helps to thanks HANAs advanced data vis. abilities. Will be my choice for clients for the next few years.

Professional GIS people are some of the most risk-averse there are, and it's difficult to get them to move to HANA in one step. Start with small projects building to 80% use of HANA spatial over time.

Alternatives Considered

SAP HANA Cloud

SAP Hana is beneficial because it has a
pleasant interface, is well structured, has excellent mobile accessibility, and
has solid permission control options. It is also interoperable with other
databases, hardware, and software, making it more adaptable and versatile.

SAP SQL Anywhere

I worked with Oracle for years during my career. I wouldn't select SQL Anywhere to implement a global ATM system with tens of thousands of concurrent connections, but SQL Anywhere is much easier to use and deploy and works very well in workgroup settings. Query performance often exceeds some Oracle versions without having to rely on database tuning.

Return on Investment

SAP HANA Cloud

  • Wide variety of data types can be maintained easily, so flexibility is in our hands.
  • The decision we made by analyzing the generated report really had a great positive impact.
  • Considering the scalability SAP HANA offers, it is the best investment.
Sreedhar Sree | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP SQL Anywhere

  • Skilled/experienced resources are less prominent than Microsoft SQL Server or even Oracle, or MySQL, so finding solutions and assistance, if needed, takes more time than it would with other platforms
  • You will need to find a good SQL query tool by yourself because the Sybase Central / Interactive SQL utilities are lacking in many basic features, and just generally have a bad user interface
