      Congrats, Priya! Keep in mind that this Go Live party initiative applies to SAP HANA full use and SAP EIM tools only (for now).

      Got you! But, what qualifies for SAP HANA "full use", kindly elaborate. Tks

      HANA enterprise edition, standard edition, or HANA as a service. The runtime edition (limited to support of applications like S/4) is not included. Hope that helps!

      My company will be going live with S/4 HANA at some point but alas alack, no party for us. My company is not based in the Americas.

      Rather it is based in Germany, right next a place called Walldorf. I drove past Walldorf the other day and there seemed to be some enormous company headquarters there, not sure what company exactly.

      Maybe things would be different, party wise, if SAP was a German company.

      We hear you, Paul! We plan to extend to the other countries next year.  Just a note that S/4HANA would not qualify--you need HANA enterprise edition or standard edition in support of S/4 to qualify.

      Good luck!

      I understand. I was just trying to be sarcastic!

      We have started with BW4/HANA and will move to S/4HANA at some stage. We are just building the business case at the moment.

      To our simple minds this seems like we are "launching" a HANA database, as we did not have one previously and now we are using one (for BW at the moment, later for ERP).

      I can see that you are trying to reward people for implementing a HANA database for some scenarios, but it is not at all clear what scenarios you are talking about. Is it for organisations that implement HANA in a context not related to a "business suite" type of thing like BW, ERP, CRM etc... ???

      Oh thanks, Paul!

       

      There is a HANA version that runs entirely to support the application. We call that "run-time HANA". But you can extend that version with additional capabilities to "full use" or "standard" HANA. Those last two scenarios (or any of the EIM products listed) are the areas we are focused on. For more on the difference between runtime and enterprise / standard, check out this very short webinar: https://event.on24.com/eventRegistration/console/EventConsoleApollo.jsp?&eventid=1998757&sessionid=1&username=&partnerref=facebook&format=fhvideo1&mobile=false&flashsupportedmobiledevice=false&helpcenter=false&key=96EDF71C1F74263D7D57BA3475199839&text_language_id=en&playerwidth=1000&playerheight=650&overwritelobby=y&eventuserid=247452343&contenttype=A&mediametricsessionid=205112247&mediametricid=2817208&usercd=247452343&mode=launch

      Dear Ina,

      I understand exactly where you are coming from. I saw a presentation - at SAP HQ in Walldorf - which explained all the various EIM products and there are quite a lot. I have been focusing on the SAP Data Hub which has a different name now, at least in the Cloud.

      The problem occurs with naming. SAP sometimes manages to confuse people a great deal with what they call various products

      From an intuitive point of view you would think a "standard" HANA database implementation would be the absolute bare minimum but it does not seem like that is the case.

      Likewise "enterprise" would seem to indicate that would be a version of HANA used by big companies to run their ERP system. Again I get the feeling that is not what is actually meant.

      In the UK we often laugh at ourselves for being pedantic as in "No one is more pedantic than I" so I may be making an enormous deal out of nothing but the idea that the name of a product should describe in some sense what its purpose is without needing an instruction manual or any sort of presentation at all would surely be a good thing?

      Cheersy Cheers

      Paul
