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.

If you have to manage a lot of different databases from different vendors, you could do well by standardizing on this product. It checks all the boxes for a proper database management studio. You would only have to learn one product to manage them all.However, if you are looking to find a good product for a single database vendor, you might be better off finding a tool that was designed specifically for that vendor product.

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.

  • Foreign Key Constraint data viewer! This was a tremendously helpful feature that not many other products have. Just pick a constraint and see the data in the child tables! No setup required!
  • Supports any and every database imaginable.

Cons

SAP HANA

  • Implementing SRS patches incurs significant cost to upgrade the existing system.
  • It runs only in Linux Environment. Does not compatible in other OS.
  • The older version gets outdated more often due to frequent SPS updates and releasing enhanced SAP HANA’s versions.

  • Somewhat laggy performance. Boot up speed was on the slow side and connecting to our database servers was also a little slower than other products.
  • User interface can be a little clunky. Instead of the usual tree view of servers, databases, and schemas, you are presented with lists that you click on and get new windows to pick the new list of data from. Not organized efficiently.

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.

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.

Compared to Microsoft's SQL Management Studio, Valentina studio was comparable, just harder to get used to in the UI department. It ran slightly slower than other products but did save some time with neat features they baked into the product.However, in using DBeaver Community and DBForge Studio for PostgreSQL from Devart, we found different products that the team ultimately decided to use. DBeaver has all of the features we needed most (minus the constraint data viewer) and a more intuitive UI that we were used to. DBForge Studio for PostgreSQL has a very standard Windows look and feel and lacks some features, like database/table designers, but makes up for those shortcomings in the much easier filtering and sorting options right in the data grids. You can even write a query and edit the data returned, which is something we don't see in many of these tools.Our team ultimately settled on the developers using DBeaver and the support team that needs data viewing/editing capabilities using DBForge Studio.

Return on Investment

  • The [strategies] and the time consumed on migrating to HANA was time [consuming] and costly during the initial phases of the project.
  • The time and resources utilized to set up the infra plan from requirements to production was huge.
  • But once we were getting into cadence of utilizing the open architecture of HANA we were able to utilize its features that helped us to leverage.
  • Again I would say that overall for us HANA [has] proved to be worth spending for as it helped us achieve our business's objectives.

  • It saved time in some areas of finding child data by not having to write queries to find it.
  • The user interface caused some extra training for some users and ultimately caused them to not like using it.
