Used it for a proof of concept for one of our greenfield clients. This is for a learning platform implementation for a small organization.

  • A great platform for developers to use HANA in a accessible format without the cost implementation..
  • Availability of predictive analtyics , geo-spatial and text analytics
  • Very good for POCs for SME
  • It would be great if IDES systems are available in SAP HANA Express edition continuously, this will help developers a lot. The market has a lot of pirate servers available eating in to the market of SAP. SAP has to consider that
  • Offerings for SME in T shirt sizes would be great
It's great for your developers to play around and learn the intricacies of the HANA Application. The best part is developers would be able to get familiarized with HANA Admin and it would be a great opportunity for SAP to expand its market in India. It is not suited for SME that are looking for production deployment due to the restriction of the DB size.

We were having a lot of customization issues processing integrating services for different data types to get the analytic reports. After we started to use HANA Express Edition, much of the functionalities like advances analytic, data processing, with numerous data structure with built-in app services were enabled. The part we liked best is its community support and the flexibility of memory usages with much less administrative work.
  • The best part I would recommend is the real-time analytic reports
  • As compare to traditional DBs, this edition is tremendous faster, easier, quick to learn
  • Very good for our data load in few of the traditional DBs, with which we use our SAP Lumira, Web IDE, Also its flexible to integrate with 3rd party software like Tableau
  • Personally, I like the best part is can load on our personal laptop, desktop with no special appliance restriction like most HANA DBs does, easy to setup and quick in resulting in real-time results.
  • I would be more than happy if normal users like me which work on test data can get the system of min 64GB at no charge.. :)
  • One of feature I would like to behave with it is smart data integration,
For huge data set with some fuzzy uncommon and unusual search kind of features is less appropriate like in many places for finance related stuff from the developer point of view. Its very well suited to create a POC for demo purpose even though for production use purpose, the coding with HANA is really fast and quick resulting turn with an expected format

We use SAP HANA Express in the following ways:

  • Very fast query response times due to in-memory architecture
  • Virtualized data architecture via connectivity to other databases and data sources
  • Column store and Efficient compression of data
  • Integration with R server from the database
  • No first line support from SAP
Well suited:
Existing Business Intelligence solutions running on other relational databases that do not make use of in-memory and columnar store technologies. Environments where developers want to run a copy of the database on their laptop.

Less suited:
Existing Business Intelligence solutions running on other relational databases do not make use of in-memory and columnar store technologies.
