SAP has relentlessly promoted HANA since its release in May 2010, touting its ability to quickly analyze huge amounts of business data and confirming a major early interest from customers. One person who has worked on a number of HANA proof-of-concept (POC) exercises said Tuesday that while HANA’s technology is effective, customers should expect some bumps in the street and a fair amount of effort prior to the results are got by them.
Harald Reiter of Deloitte Consulting, throughout a presentation on the Tech Ed show floor that drew a big throng of onlookers. Customers should start a HANA project with a solid use case in mind, “something you really want to look live with,” that justifies the financial investment, he said. At this time, he said, customers have limited options: Either use mostly of the packed analytic applications SAP has so far released for HANA, or build something from scuff. Customers should take pains to fall into line with a full-fledged, dedicated HANA team, relating to Reiter. The roster should include a project manager, solution architect, HANA administrator, data services architect, data modeler, security expert, and developers, he said.
Part of the challenges Reiter encountered on his tasks was the fact that SAP has been issuing improvements to HANA in rapid-fire fashion. While the areas often were to repair pests and are “technically pain-free to put into action,” they still require tests to be redone, he said. In addition, sometimes the updated version of HANA behaved from the last in a different way.
- A/B tests
- Considering all the above tips, E-file IRS form 2290
- 2 – ServSafe offers its teachers great support via purchased books, email messages, and the web
- Most state to be employees
- Find a good company to choose the startup deal (including bylaw, minute reserve, etc)
- I can make offering my books my responsibility, not my publisher’s
- Don’t presume that anyone knows more about your unique medical situation than you do
Data modeling is the main element to squeezing the best performance out of HANA, so the data modeler person in the united team is most significant, Reiter said. HANA’s performance can be “completely different from one data model to the next,” he added. SAP has partnered with a true quantity of hardware vendors for HANA, which is available as an appliance in several sizes with system RAM varying accordingly. Customers should realize that a considerable portion of system RAM is going to be consumed by processing, leaving less room for data storage space, he said.
Companies will want to use HANA to run historical analyses on all their data but that will be difficult with a smaller kitchen appliance, even though HANA’s data compression ability is factored in, he said. Overall, customers should “expect the unexpected,” Reiter said. SAP has made a lot of’s “pipeline,” or backlog of sales leads, saying it’s the fastest-growing in company background.
While which may be the case, a lot of its customers tend years from considering an investment in HANA for various reasons away. Columbia Sportswear is currently involved in a major ERP (enterprise-resource-planning) system migration and adding a HANA project would cause too much complexity now, said Bob Kaila, SAP basis manager.
