SAP HANA is SAP's in-memory database technology, and the focal point of their next generation strategy. Using column-based storage to provide highly compressed and rapidly accessed data, a SAP HANA application can be several hundred times faster than the same application on previous generation database technology.
SAP HANA Starter is a hands-on book, taking you step-by-step through the creation of your first SAP HANA application. You will discover the building blocks that SAP HANA provides, and use them to create a robust reporting application. More advanced features are shown, allowing you to transform your reporting application into a yearly sales increase simulator. Finally, you’ll learn how to access your SAP HANA application from Microsoft Excel.
Using easy to understand examples and logical progression, you will build your first SAP HANA application – a sales amount simulator, from scratch.
Starting with the creation of tables in the database, and using the modeling building blocks provided by the SAP HANA Studio, you will first see how to build a reporting application on these tables, and then extend this application to allow sales increase simulation, finally making the data available to others in Microsoft Excel.
Get to grips with a new technology, understand what it is and what it can do for you, and then get to work with the most important features and tasks. Written as a practical guide, SAP Hana Starter will show you all you need to know to build your first reporting application utilizing SAP’s new in-memory database technology.
