SAP HANA, enterprise edition

Overall Satisfaction with SAP HANA

SAP HANA allows us to seamlessly manage the huge magnitude and varied data domain, thereby helping us consume the data in ways required by business users. HANA is being used extensively across different streams. As such it's quite scalable in terms of managing various TBs of data while still maintaining the accessibility and interoperability.
  • Manage huge data volumes.
  • Easy control over data, while allowing users to seamlessly consume data via different views (analytics/calculation, etc.)
  • Scalability and data security.
  • The workload class concept introduced with HANA 2.0 has at times inaccuracies in propagating the rules when faced with conflicting scenarios.
  • I am aware of the current appraoch to move from HANA Studio to Cockpit, however for a certain section of users, Studio still has better acquaintances, and I'm not sure if there are plans to completely do away with Studio?
  • Definitely increased the business experience.
  • Aids in faster decision making.
  • Brings different source systems on board.
Decent support from SAP colleagues, topped with excellent KBA repository, etc.

SAP HANA does a lot better at managing humongous data volumes, building queries on top, connectivity with host of other services, workload class concept, granular access control, etc. With the ability to connect to Azure/AWS it expands the options to bring enterprise data to a whole different usage level. HANA has increased the ways/options in which data was being accessed.
