  • It is a multi-cloud environment platform professionally manageable
  • It can manage cost, storage and performance quickly
  • Limited Hardware Compatibility Issue
  • Users reported its shut down usually

SAP HANA provides parallel processing during different operations regarding databases. This platform also allows us to perform the data integration and aggregation from the different applications.
Our organization always emphasized real-time analytics or live transactional data. So the SAP HANA is one of the most appropriate and beneficial platforms for our organization. For example, because of the platform multi-model data analytics we are able to manage thousands of our customers, and the machine learning capabilities [allow] us [intelligent] data analysis.
Because of its cloud features including the management of database, multi-model processing, administration of the database, security of the data, data visualization, and application development. Our organization and top leadership always consider all these multi-dimensional features that's why we rate ten out of ten for the overall support for SAP HANA.

SAP HANA [is] used as a database and for business warehouse for our client. This solution speeds up the business decision and performance.
  • Strong Database
  • In-memory Database
  • Reliable,Simple UI
  • Fast
  • Multi core processor
  • There could be more inbuilt function can be added like reverse string in calculated column
  • String aggregation can be added
  • There should not be limit of 2 billion record in a table
  • Planning viz can be simplfied
SAP HANA is best suited to model the business scenrio with help of a calculation view in simpler way. This is less appropriate if some one want to do only use as database and not using the string modelling capacity.
Yes organization got benefits of the realtime analytics in transaction data with the help of in memory data base technology. The business decision to make is fast and efficient. The revenue is increased for the client and system is more reliable and stable
Support is very good for the SAP HANA, response is sometime late but acceptable.

The SAP HANA is a pro-in-memory database that helps our company to manage transactional and analytical workloads that require only one data copy. With the help of this robust tool, we have broken down our transactional and analytical silos that as a result helped us to improve the decision process and get more profitable results. The best thing is that it serves you with the same faster functionalities and powerful features whether you are using it on organization premises or in the cloud.
  • The SAP HANA data backup mechanisms are very rapid and active and one of my favorite features is that it makes it simple to restore any essential data that was lost accidentally.
  • It provides a simple and clear view of connected and distributed data to make smarter decisions and the additional feature is that we don't need to collect this data in one place.
  • This SAP system has a lot of features that I like, especially the data recovery functionality, and its cloud services are outstanding and beneficial to our company.
  • Its In-Memory capacity and functionality make it the smartest and fastest system and it can quickly compute very heavy loads of all types.
  • Its deployment takes time and configuring this entire application is tough, and it might be difficult to understand its core operations at times.
  • It needs some improvements because when anything goes wrong, determining the root cause is extremely hard.
I think this is the most suitable relational database for almost all types of businesses because it helps them create data solutions that are cloud-native in terms of flexibility, efficiency, and reliability that are the main requirement of all companies for better performance.
SAP HANA Cloud database is more than just a relational database. Then only breaking down data silos and managing them. It provides additional advantages like we can get trustworthy, business-ready data from only one source, which positively impacts enterprise scalability and security.
Its customer support is reliable and efficient. I have had experience with its support and they always give quick support services.

For us, SAP Hana is a very important tool and without a doubt, it has brought very notable benefits in our organization and continuous management of analysis from various sources. When the people in charge of the company I work for bought SAP Hana, I was one of those who participated during the implementation of this great platform. Currently, SAP Hana is implemented in all sectors of our company, in order to collect accurate information and integrate it into a single set. SAP Hana is capable of collecting accurate and analytical information about our Marketing, Sales, Finance and also the sector Technical Assistance. For our entire company, having SAP Hana has turned out to be an exponential improvement, this has allowed us not to spend so much time carrying out a deep analysis on the areas of the company individually, SAP Hana collects all the information from all areas, It integrates them and thanks to its automated system, it provides us with detailed reports on the various data sources that have been integrated into the platform. It is important to note that SAP Hana has also provided us with predictive analysis to be able to know exactly the direction of each area, thanks to the data collected. We are very satisfied with the results of SAP Hana, it has been an excellent platform that enhances all the data collection that exists in our various sectors of the company, in addition, it helps the analyzes to be more precise, with information collected in real time .
  • 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.
  • SAP Hana has a large number of functions, its system is very complicated to use and this makes it even more difficult to obtain a good ROI after the user purchases a SAP Hana plan. This is one of the negative factors that SAP Hana has, it is an in-memory database that is very complicated to implement, it is necessary to have a constant practice of its functions and the configurations that must be made, to start obtaining results. notable in a company.
  • The SAP Technical Support team does not offer an immediate response during the implementation process. During our implementation process, the participation of many employees of the Software Engineering sector was necessary, in addition, we require a high participation of IT employees, to have a feasible implementation, since we do not receive any type of support from the Support team. from SAP, they took a long time to give us an answer to our implementation questions.
Without a doubt, I would recommend this platform for all those companies that want to apply a data collection model that is totally different from the usual one. Today, many companies collect data individually for each sector and must analyze it individually, however, having SAP Hana in the company would change that entire analysis process. SAP Hana optimizes data collection and achieves that data is obtained in real time, in addition, it offers an advanced system to generate instant reports with the information collected. SAP Hana collects all the information from various data sources, in one place, so it is easier to analyze the data without having to do it individually. It is a very complicated software to use, its implementation process is complex, but with a trained team, it will be possible to implement it in a few weeks.
This is one of the functions that has caught our attention the most of SAP Hana. We are currently benefiting from this great feature, and the way we can get real-time data across the various sectors of our business is fantastic. SAP Hana helps us to collect accurate information about the sales of our company, being a real estate company, SAP Hana allows us to know in real time the progress of each sale, customer satisfaction and also provides us with detailed information about the transaction process . SAP Hana has also provided us with excellent results in our Marketing sector, we can know exactly the advertising material made by our employees, in addition, we can know in real time all the traffic generated by the advertising sent through various mechanisms, either through social networks or via email. We can visualize all the data that we obtain in our Marketing sector in real time thanks to SAP Hana.
As I mentioned earlier, SAP Hana support is one of the most negative things about the platform. Our implementation process was developed by a large number of employees trained in the software engineering sector and several employees in the IT sector. SAP Hana support was totally nil, they failed to resolve our doubts and they were not very consistent during our implementation process, as we received late responses to the large number of questions that arose during our implementation process. Thanks to our business team, we were able to implement the platform successfully, but the support was chaos.

It is very helpful for us to undertake our luxury retail business fields. It also improves the end-to-end and end-user experience. Our project structure requires to use of ERP and SAP HANA, and I can say that the connection between ERP and SAP HANA has been reliable and easy. It's being used with SAP By Design in business intelligence and sales departments for predictive and analysis data.
  • The speed of retrieving and aggregating data.
  • It has a lot of information if you work with planning areas, you can take advantage of the data, you can connect with its APIs
  • We can save data and share that quickly, it also gives a report of our work done on its terminal. Easy interface, fast, secure.
  • It only supports Linux, not other OS, so we cannot operate SAP HANA.
  • The price of the product is a bit high and it should be reduced.
  • It took time for generating big reports.
It is very slow sometimes and you need to wait for quite a lot of time to get your view executed. It will also be great if the layout can be a little bit more modern. It allows you to connect with a lot of servers and available data, is pretty handy and self-explanatory.
[Have not needed support] up to now.

SAP HANA is used across all the departments in our IT offices, it does directly solve our problems but it is what we use to generate solutions to all problems we encounter in our daily work life. We use SAP HANA to derive streamlined data that can be viewed in one data platform and can be trusted to give us valuable information. SAP HANA gives our departments access to real-time data and analytics that ease my burden with making an exact prediction for unpredictable markets. In our every work process, we use SAP HANA to leverage the intelligence processes by using technologies like Artificial intelligence and Machine language to automate the process efficiently and strategically which eventually finishes into a perfect task and saves more time.
Many times, we use SAP HANA Cloud to help our Company optimize processes, improve our Software quality and be more agile.
  • Real-time data and analytics for accurate general and market forecasts.
  • Collation of streamline data into one platform for the purpose of see valuable information in one place.
  • Uses AI and machine learning for process optimization.
  • Increasing number of SAP Solutions
  • Upgrade in Application Kits
  • Adding more designs and features to the user interface
SAP HANA is well suited for all agencies that use technology in their daily activities; it is especially suitable for mid-sized business owners. While it can help small business owners who use technology improve and update their business, it can help Big business carry on their task efficiently and effectively whilst saving time.
We have benefited from this, using a recent example which was after the pandemic, our company was planning to release an upgraded version of our system, we planned this release in November 2020 but with SAP HANA real-time analytics we moved our release to February 2021 and launched in March 2021, this generated us 12% more profit than we calculated.
I gave this rating because SAP HANA is what we use and it has been more than reliable, it is dependable and I'll call it a company and project saver. SAP HANA serves our company and branches with unrivaled and maximum quality services and packages. With the recent updates in SAP HANA kits it is SAP HANA to the world.

I don’t have any idea if SAP HANA is being used across the while enterprise, but we highly rely on it in the IT department to perform vital procedures like data modeling, applications development, among other procedures.
  • Data modeling enables high performance on data with inbuilt graphical models.
  • SAP HANA supports any size and type of data while running multiple assortments of workloads.
  • Optimizing operational cost and storage while analyzing data in the cloud.
  • SAP HANA offers an in-memory database, which extends workloads across the entire enterprise's applications (cloud and on-premise).
  • At the moment I don’t have issues since the vendor support team in collaboration with in-house technical team eradicates errors as soon as they arise.
Ever since we implemented SAP HANA Cloud, we improved innovation in our organization by processing, analyzing, and modeling different assortments of data in a single scalable platform.
Yes, we have relished a lot from real-time analytics on our live transactional data through interactive graphical insights for data visualization, hence making rapid informed determination.
I have been an active member in the SAP community, where we discuss matters including new features and implementation with other SAP users and the SAP support team. SAP also offers other support such as phone calls and email support.

We are using SAP HANA at the company level for all our business units, SAP HANA has helped us getting the SAP reporting performance increased by 10 times as compared to the old system. The database has enabled us to reduce the size by 1/2 as compared to previous versions of the Database.
  • With the upgrade to SAP HANA our database size reduced to 1/2
  • The Reports generation time has reduced to minutes from hours
  • The backup windows time has reduced drastically
  • SAP HANA server shut down abruptly at times of heavy data processing
  • Due to frequent SPS releases and updates in the SAP HANA versions Taking shutdown of production servers is an issue as you need to take the complete backup before any upgrade
  • SAP HANA is a costly investment due to hardware and OS compatability
Company's that have a plan to migrate to S/4 Hana for them SAP HANA is well suited as it is the foundation.
If the business does not have an urgent need for migration then it does not give you the benefit unless your hardware is due for a refresh as it needs complete new investment in hardware and old cannot be used even as a standby.
We are still working on the real-time analytics, I feel with the SAP HANA database it should be much faster and easy for running the loads as it is an in-memory database so the IOPs will be less and the results will be fast. SAP HANA needs to give some workaround with old versions of applications for standard functionalities on data analytics.
SAP HANA needs to improve on the SAP HANA support mechanism, as there are instances when one has to wait for solutions and support.

SAP HANA is being used in our organization as integrated data storage and management of data sources at one single secure solution. We use SAP HANA to streamline and integrate data from multiple sources in a unified platform and further analyze and modify data as per our organizational needs. The multitasking ability of SAP HANA gives us the leverage to free up the multitude of data resources in the organization. Additional AI and machine learning properties keep our work processes and automated workflows running as our backup systems and also provide extra efficiency to all of our processes. Overall SAP HANA has been a great tool in our catalog of applications. As an organization, we have gained a lot of productivity, efficiency, and security for our attended and unattended data resources. We are using SAP HANA across all of our IT-related departments.
  • Artificial Intelligence and machine learning capabilities to keep the overall data optimization and efficiency streamlined.
  • Redundancy of a multitude of data resources through intelligent machine learning systems.
  • Real time data visualization and analysis.
  • Integration with multiple data resources.
  • Price is a bit high.
SAP HANA is capable to handle large databases and can be used as a uniform solution for the integration of different data resources for real-time visualization and analysis. The artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities are wonderful and can easily run preloaded work processes efficiently. It can be a great solution for organizations to handle a multitude of data resources.
Real-time analytics by SAP HANA for in-memory database on live transactional data through its AI capabilities are very efficient and accurate and we get the insights in a detailed and reliable way. We have used and benefited from using this feature of SAP HANA, as it helped a lot in streamlining our data resources and we were able to free up a big amount of our data sources using the analytics.
SAP has one well-managed support system and the people on their support teams are very much knowledgeable about SAP products and mostly provide solutions in real-time. There are multiple support systems offered by SAP and we can use any of the available channels based on the nature of the support needed.

As a DBS, SAP HANA is used for data storage, logs, and reports at our company. It also facilitates ETL functions, data tiering, content virtualization, and application development through the use of integrated development environments and made it easy to use interface, data hierarchy view, and folders are some of the benefits for grouping separate items. Having the ability to access data by means of views makes it easier for us to have only one database because we need to manage a lot of data, reports, and stats. SAP HANA helps us manage all this information with a single system and this significantly lowers the TCO and significantly reduces time spent on data management.
  • Handle multiple data assets with a single system
  • The in memory DBS allows it to run faster
  • Real-time data processing in just a few seconds
  • It is difficult to migrate and integrate systems and this feature must be more easier
  • The SAP HANA cloud version is much faster than the on-premise Linux version
  • Due to its provision of separate versions for each case, there is a high price difference between versions and licenses
This platform is great for managing Logistics and Finance in great detail. It is easy to implement, is fast for queries, and great for aggregation. It maximizes our stock control, and it improved our visibility inside the warehouse, which further helped improve our profitability. It provides better reporting, and provides better analysis and insights.
Through in-memory processing, faster access speeds enable our projects more reliable and fast retrieval of data, and by extension, enhanced our company and customer's decision-making processes with real-time reporting features. The information is accessed more promptly by users, synced quicker with business intelligence tools, and this speeds up the necessary implementation process.
In recent years, SAP products have become more widespread, and in addition to training documents, the support team responds faster and their support team is very professional.

I have used SAP HANA before, but for my current organization, the main purpose was simply day-to-day processes reducing unnecessary maintenance options. Also, as we do have other SAP products in house, integration was smooth, too.
  • Improvement on data visibility
  • Cost management
  • Data management
  • Implementation was a little tough
  • Need to have proper infrastructure plan in place, otherwise cost may go up
  • Different versions of the product sometimes creates confusion
For us, SAP HANA was the best option, as storing digital images was not part of our plan, so bringing it in did simplify our processes for applications. We also do have a large amount of data, so switching to SAP HANA saved time for reporting and analyzing it. I think if you have a better idea about your overall infrastructure, then SAP HANA is a great option because cost becomes the biggest challenge if your design plan for infrastructure is not clear.
I would like to discuss what I observed after reviewing similar products and found SAP HANA is doing better than others:
  • Real-time analytics are great and improving day by day
  • Developed our production processes at least 5x more
  • Improved business applications performance
  • Built-in reporting capability is outstanding, and that is something that is needed for senior management
Support has been amazing so far--any cases they handle, they handle with care, I get a prompt response from them.

Besides, SAP HANA has a satisfactory loading speed, which ensures every activity is attained on time. Also, SAP HANA has worked for its in-built memory, making the entire performance outstanding. Finally, SAP HANA allows us consolidate and work with other software, more so the third party one, and this speeds our operations.

HANA is the future of SAP and all the other Databases. Unlike other databases, HANA uses in-memory technology to store data so it will be faster to fetch all the required information within a fraction of seconds. As hardware gets cheaper day by day it’s a great opportunity to use HANA Database.
  • It’s relational Database management system and it’s build on top of SAP.
  • It handles multiple data processing and brings together the column, row, and object-based data storage.
  • It is used for big data processing and analytics.
  • It’s expensive.
  • Implementation and licensing cost is more.
  • Overall good.
SAP HANA provides real-time analysis and decision-making capability. It enables the processing of large amounts of data while the business is going on. Thus, it provides instant real-time insights. SAP HANA provides real-time analysis and decision-making capability.
Yes, The in-memory database technology makes data processing and transactions very fast as the data stores in RAM. Therefore, data can be directly and quickly processed from there. In traditional databases and the technologies working with it, users can use only one of the transactional processes (OLTP and OLAP) at a time. But, in SAP HANA’s in-memory database, you can access various databases both for transactional (OLTP) and analytical (OLAP) queries parallelly at once.
It’s a hot skill and its futuristic AP HANA allows parallel processing which is the core of efficient data analysis. This is how it works…we know that SAP HANA facilitates Columnar Data Storage in which operations such as searching for specific data or aggregating the data are done in loops over an array in adjacent memory locations. In contrast to this, in the traditional row-oriented approach, such operations tend to be very slow as data belonging to the same column is spread across the memory. Column-based storage also facilitates fast data loading into the CPU cache. As data is already vertically divided in a column-based approach, parallel processing is possible using multiple processing cores. Also, if more than one column is required to be searched or aggregated, each of these tasks can be allocated to a diverse processor core. Further, to quicken the process, operations on one column can be parallelized by dividing the column into various parts, each of which can be processed by different processor cores. This facilitates parallel processing!
