Learn to do an SAP HANA “hello world” – attend my Teched session BI105

Even if you are living under a rock, there is a fair chance that some one would have clued you in on HANA. You cannot talk to any one in SAP without HANA coming into the conversation these days.

My colleagues and I expirimented with HANA quite a bit, and I would like to share with you the details of how to set up an analytics scenario in HANA end to end. From getting data out of a source, to putting it into HANA, to making analytics/calc views on it, to reporting out of BI 4.0 tools.  Of course it is only one hour in the session – so we will focus mostly on HANA itself and less on data services and BO tools, except for the integration aspects.

If you want to read about our experience in setting this up – please check out my personal blog

Of course I am just planning to give you what I learned from my experience. I don’t work for SAP, and cannot give you a lot of details on what will happen in future, and what other neat tricks exist and so on.

I am looking forward to seeing you at my session – BI 105, which is on Wednesday from 5.45PM to 6.45PM

    • Blog about a Blog - I have to comment.  I loved it.  I would never had found Vijay's WorldPress blog without this one.

      As for publishing his blog here - I'm glad it's not a repeat in case I saw the WorldPress blog. 

      Why not publish on our loved SCN first and link the WorldPress into SCN?  Ah - what difference would that make?  The WorldPress would be a blog inside a blog.  Also even though we don't (I don't) want to think about it, there are MANY different places to post SAP blogs.  It really is great actually.  You can spread the word and get other perspectives than what you read on SCN.  Personally I have trouble keeping up with all the information here.  So I follow very little of the other sites.  Unless they pop up when I Google something.

      So since I love a good debate, those are my comments.  I'm sure Vijay can answer better.  🙂  But I couldn't stop myself from answering.


    • There are 2 reasons
      1. It is much easier to create blogs in wordpress. It is just a personal preference. When I think SDN community might be interested in what I have to say, I put a link here.

      2. In SDN, all I wanted to do was to say I am doing a session at Teched, and this link was additional info only.

  • Hi Vijay,
    Although HANA and I may never officially work together, this is a great opportunity to learn from your experience.

    Looking forward to it!

  • I have so many sessions I want to go to and limited time.  I hate that part of Teched choosing the sessions.

    I would love to go to this one.  I know nothing about BI/BW but it would be great to see HANA at work.  I haven't done my schedule yet.  If I can, I'll be there!
