How can I load data into HANA?
There are several options available to get data into HANA. SAP provides a real-time replication server called SLT Replication. With this server you can replicate data from a SAP system or non-SAP RDMS systems into HANA. The data is copied in its native format and will then need to be de-normalized on HANA using information views ( attribute views, analytic views and calculation views).
According to the documentation, you can also leverage the Sybase Replication Server for log based replication. In addition, Data Services can be used to move data into HANA and can update data at near real time if needed. Data Services can also de-normalize the data given its abundance of data transforms and provide data quality and cleansing transforms that will help clean the data before it is loaded into HANA.
How can I access data stored in HANA?
There are several ways to access the data within HANA. The ideal way to access data is through SAP BusinessObjects. There are multiple tools within the BusinessObjects platform for accessing HANA data.
You can utilize Web Intelligence, Crystal Reports, Explorer, "Analysis Edition for Microsoft Office", Mobile and Dashboard (Xcelsius). In short, any tool in the platform that supports ODBC or a Universe can be utilized to access data within HANA. These options work for SAP BW (powered by HANA) or for HANA (Standalone).
If you have SAP BW powered by HANA, you can utilize any of the traditional query tools. For those that like viewing raw data results, you can utilize HANA Studios to execute SQL statements and view the results.
Does SAP HANA only work for companies that have SAP ERP and SAP BW?
HANA has no dependencies on SAP BW or SAP ERP software. HANA is a separate product that can work both independently of SAP BW or work as the engine for SAP BW. Because SAP has made several integration enhancements within the SAP BusinessObjects and SAP Data Services products, companies can load and query data from HANA even if they have never used SAP BW. This includes experience with Data Integrator, Data Services, Universe Design, Web Intelligence, Crystal Reports, Xcelsius, Business Objects Enterprise, HANA, BOE architecture and server sizing.
