We have just started recording a number of video tutorials for the SAP HANA Academy specifically targeted to Oracle developers.
In this series, we assume that you are familiar with the Oracle database but that you might need some guidance for SAP HANA.
Where can you find documentation? Any free training? How does the SAP HANA in-memory technology relates to Oracle’s?
This will be an ongoing project, so please feel free to leave your comments below about topics that you wish to have addressed.
- PL/SQL vs SQLScript?
- Column storage?
- What tool to use?
Complete playlist: SAP HANA for Oracle Developers – YouTube
In the first video, the SAP Community Network, the SAP Help Portal, the SAP Support Portal and the Product Availability Matrix are introduced. Knowing where to find information is critical for success.
The hosted options are presented:
- SAP HANA One on Amazon Web Services (AWS)
- SAP HANA Developer Edition
- SAP Cloud Appliance Library
- SAP HANA Cloud Platform
Connecting to the Developer Edition
The next video shows how to connect to the developer edition and shows the web interface to manage your SAP HANA instance, how to connect using SAP HANA studio and also how to connect on the command line using SSH.
Now that we can connect to the SAP HANA database, we take a look at the SAP HANA architecture as compared to Oracle’s.
Connectivity options are discussed: ODBC/JDBC, ODBO, XML/A, OData.
The different system services: indexserver, name server, compile server, etc.
The next video discusses SAP HANA in-memory: What’s the difference between a traditional database and an In-Memory Platform?
