Native SAP HANA BI – Links collection
Following the new SAP paradigm of simplicity, Business Intelligence tools running directly in SAP HANA cuts out additional layers which speeds up processing.
Recently I noticed a shift in releases, that products are now interacting more with each other and run directly on SAP HANA.
3 types of solutions are currently available:
SAP HANA XS Engine
using js code, a lot of these solutions are available on the SAP HANA Marketplace, made by developers around the world:
There are also some SAP HANA packages which can be installed using SAP HANA Studio, like INA:
SAP Lumira Server Visualizations
SAP Design Studio Dashboards
So I would speculate that the XS Engine will be the basis and future of all the BI integrations into SAP HANA.
BI tools which are not covered in this landing page:
Crystal Reports Server for SAP HANA, not a native SAP HANA solution:
The CR for HANA Reporting Service is installed on a separate Linux system.
BI solutions leveraging the speed of SAP HANA but not native:
SAP HANA Studio as it can display data and charts, but it’s more of a desktop client, like Lumira.
