SAP HANA

I recommend SAP HANA as Database Management System (DBMS) to perform ETL operations well and for storage / retrieval of data, defining / management of data, and generation of reports. The data hierarchy view and folders makes the interface simple and helpful to group different items. It is helpful for the management of huge data set and data visualization. It is capable of running in-memory to process data rapidly.

SAP IQ

Does data compression very well, produces query results very quickly, ability to scale up as data volume/size grow in an organization, row level versioning is in memory and hence the speed. It is a very stable product for large enterprises. More detailed documentation on how to use this product in the initial stages would be really welcome.

Pros

SAP HANA

  • Data collection is in real time. When the data source of the various sectors is integrated, SAP Hana is able to collect accurate and real-time information, be it from negotiations, advertising, customer service and much more. This data collection in real time allows us to obtain graphs that advance in real time, and thus we can know exactly the movement of each area of ​​the company at all times without having to wait a long time for a report to be generated.
  • The SAP Hana database is very secure, all our data remains safe at all times and we can choose the privacy of the information, so that each person in charge of managing the platform can see specific information. We can import and export data at any time, without fear that any of our essential data will be leaked or stolen.
  • It supports an amount of data greater than 40TB, this helps us too much to be able to collect information and store it, to be able to have a much broader graphical analysis that covers several days or several weeks, and even months.

  • Inserting millions of rows of data takes seconds.
  • Aggregating billions of rows of data is insanely fast (compared to Oracle, Sybase, and SQL Server).

  • It runs only in Linux Environment. Does not compatible in other OS.

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 has a good support system for their all products in general and the support teams are easy to connect in a matter of assistance requirement. There are multiple support channels available for the customers to be able to get answered for their problems, the most easiest as per my experience is live chat, as we get instant assistance from the real persons at the other end and that too in real-time.

SAP IQ support is top-notch. I prefer starting all my SAP IQ support tickets with their Instant Messenger, where the majority of our issues are resolved. If it makes it to their ticketing system, they are very prompt at responding and very knowledgeable in the platform.

Alternatives Considered

SAP HANA

I can definitely confirm that SAP HANA cloud solution is by far the best seeing that their machine learning capabilities and sophisticated algorithms are worth the cost. It also leads in in-memory database features hence its great performance.

SAP IQ

SAP IQ is perhaps an under-marketed product in the sense that it is able to scale up very well and perform much faster and more efficiently than other products such as Oracle - when we ran multiple large queries on both Sybase IQ and Oracle, we found that that results were much faster in Sybase IQ and this gave the confidence to go for this product.
