Overall Satisfaction with SAP HANA

We use SAP HANA as the backend database for S4/HANA and BW systems. Also, we have an enterprise SAP HANA system used for reporting. All analytics solutions are built on this system.
  • Faster query processing.
  • Efficient storage of data - Well compressed.
  • Graphical modeling tools for analytic applications that are not available in other databases.
  • Better workload management - de-prioritize long running queries.
  • Better scheduling and monitoring platform for XSA jobs. Built-in scheduler.
  • Dependency analyzer like the one for CDS views for Calculation views.
  • UI development options like ASAP selection screen for simple use cases.
  • Built-in table editor.
  • Provided the ability to run advanced analytic solutions with real-time data that could not be built in earlier tools.
  • Provides better data insights in turn providing visibility to business processes.
Did not review any other products at the current customer. Earlier we evaluated Snowflake.
Many times it's hard to reach out to the right expert on the topic and the OSS message processor keeps asking for silly things or several logs from the system or makes silly recommendations that do not work.
