#sitFRA demo Recap – SAP HANA && SAP Vora Yin and Yang of SAP Data Management

On the 25th of March, @Witalij Rudnicki and I were honoured with a presentation slot during the SAP Inside Track held in Frankfurt, Germany.

This was my first time at an SAP Inside Track which unfortunately doesn’t exists in France yet (I hope this will change soon!).


The presentation was about SAP HANA && SAP Vora in a SAP Data Management scenario and was focusing on explaining and demonstrating how and why they could fit together in a common landscape.

The session slides can be found here.



The intent of this blog series is to guide you thru the steps for running that demo on your own.

In order to keep the content concise and short, Witalij and I decided to split it into a few parts and make it reusable to others which explains why it took us a bit more time to release this blog.

So, first let me describe the landscape we decided to use for the demonstration that was running on my laptop (luckily I have 32GB of RAM):

  • SAP HANA, express edition 2.0
  • SAP Vora, developer edition 1.3
  • Global Database of Events, Language, and Tone data (GDELT)

SAP HANA, express edition && SAP Vora, developer edition setup

Here is the link to an “How to” guide that will show you how to install and configure SAP HANA, express edition and SAP Vora, developer edition:

Then you will need to import the data into SAP HANA & SAP Vora.

The Global Database of Events, Language, and Tone data

The data we used for the demo were retrieved from the Global Database of Events, Language, and Tone data (GDELT) version 1.0 from the GDELT project.

The following blog will explain how to import the data into SAP HANA & SAP Vora.

Query SAP HANA from SAP Vora and vice versa

Now let’s play with the data, and for that here is the link:

And this is it! Hope you enjoyed it.
