Overall Satisfaction with SAP HANA

SAP HANA is the heart of my department in my organisation. We have well qualified and trained professionals with hands on experience in SAP HANA. My organisation does conduct training sessions in each quarter with some latest updates which includes support package, advanced features, performance & operational point of views. Most of our customers are already using SAP HANA and we are supporting & enhancing their needs. We have migrated many customers from classic ERP to SAP HANA. We are using SAP HANA across the organisation in most of the departments. SAP HANA addresses most of the complex data models with better performance & analytical capabilities. Also it supports most of the data visualisation tools & also supports complex calculation in databases level.

Yes definitely SAP HANA is an in-memory database which facilitates real time data analytics on live transactional data. We have a feature in SAP HANA to derive both the real time transactional as well as analytical data. Because SAP HANA is a combination of OLTP & OLAP processing which is an advantage.
SAP HANA supports multiple data types which namely includes data, NVARCHAR, VARCHAR, BOOLEAN, Spatial graphs, JSON & flat files. Data types play an important role in an organisation because each customer's needs vary from each requirement depending on the functional needs of the end user. Enhanced models play a vital role in customer satisfaction.
Yes, SAP HANA has been designed to solve complex & logical operations according to business needs which is the unique functionality in SAP HANA. SAP HANA tends to solve calculations and delivers better Analytics results. We can derive complex calculations in a complex landscape with SAP capabilities and functionalities for better performance.
Compared to the above listed applications namely SAP Business Warehouse, SAP Business Intelligence and SAP Cloud Platform, all the base features are SAP HANA. That is, SAP HANA is the primary Data source for all these 3 mentioned applications of SAP HANA in the current market. The performance of SAP BW & SAP BI can be done together in SAP HANA.
SAP HANA is one of the best databases in the current century and it’s SAP’s own database. The performance & handling of complex calculations are far more better than any other database. Performance tuning & memory monitoring is easily done without impacting any codes. Virtual data models have been used and the basic models are not affected.

SAP HANA is well recommend for fast processing of data models & perform complex calculation on the fly. SAP HANA is an in-memory Database which performs calculation at the database level itself and provides faster results rather than reaching the top layers. This is a unique feature of SAP HANA hence I recommend it to all.
