As part of my adventure on learning HANA – especially on AWS – I’ve put together that I call the “ultimate set of HANA links” so that I can find what I need easily. It’s a compilation of links that I followed by looking up documents and then clicking on the related documents and then categorizing them. With out further ado, here are the links.

      Thanks Juergen – I have to admit that I haven’t spent as much time reading the Solutions and BOBJ related topics as my focus is more around application development with HANA 😀 BOBJ will change in a hurry as I look to spin up a BOBJ AWS instance next week. The nice thing that you all have done was to reuse links for the upgraded SPS5 content. Then only link I needed to add was the What’s new link.

      Regards,

      Bill

    Hi Bill,

    that is indeed an excellent list,

    also make sure to checkout the Hana section of the SAP NetWeaver Basis Administrator’s Toolbox Wiki:

    http://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=309461179

    That is the longest list of Hana related How-To and Guidance OSS Notes and Documentation available in one location on the Internet !

    All the best, great blog,

    Andy.

      Thanks Andy for the additional learning vector.

      I know there is a wealth of hidden information in the OSS notes – but for HANA on AWS developers who aren’t “official” SAP customers – it’s a black box. 🙁

      Hopefully, Juergen and company representing the interests of developers will convince SAP to open this valuable information up.

      Regards,

      Bill

            Hi Bill,

            Really appreciate your exhaustive list of links/resources.

            I just wanted to say that the link – http://www.experiencesaphana.com/servlet/JiveServlet/downloadBody/2171-102-4-4396/SAPHANA_TechnicalDocumentsV2.zip

            does NOT take me to a place where I can download something (as I was expecting). Instead, I am taken to the “About HANA” page of hana.sap.com (

            http://hana.sap.com/abouthana.html

            Could you please take a look at this once and let me know where I can download this Doc 2171. Thanks for your time and effort.

    Hi Team,

    Can some one clarify me, whether any huge difference between HANA_ADM SPS05 and SPS06, and to appear in this SAP TechEd certification – C_HANATEC_1, HANA_ADM SPS05 material is sufficient or do we need SPS06 as manadatory. Please help me. Thanks
