Book Description

SAP HANA is SAP’s in-memory database technology which offers real-time analytics and retrieval. With it, you can dramatically speed up your business processes, predictive analysis, or analytics.

Software Development on the SAP HANA Platform covers all aspects of the SAP HANA software, taking you from your first introductions, right through to more advanced uses and integrations of the tool.

Starting with an initial introduction and succinct guides to installation, Software Development on the SAP HANA Platform will then go on to guide you through your first development in an Attribute View. From here, we build on and consolidate SAP HANA knowledge through discussing analytic views, data authorizations, deployment, and integration with other SAP services.
