    Hi everyone,

    thanks for this really helpful article, I had a question regarding the same topic :
    how could a simple HANA Developer or modeler become a consultant? and how much time does it take on average?

    thanks in advance for your answer

      Hi Anas,
      As a developer you will have the knowledge of development tasks. However consultants are supposed to have end-to-end information of HANA products. They also need basic knowledge of security, performance, integration etc.
      The time required to gain these knowledge depends on many factors and vary person to person 🙂
      However, 2-3 month should be enough to upgrade yourself from Developer to Consultant. After that you may target a certification which will give you extra edge.


  2. Hi,

    I am certified on SAP HANA (C_HANAIMP141) and want to know which would be the best option to put forward, is it as a Developer or as a Consultant, I see that for consultant even BI knowledge related to Logistics, Process Chains, ETL, Module specific knowledge such as SD, FI & MM are requested from a single consultant.

    And also how much time does it take to get knowledge on these.

    Hi I am interested in learning SAP Hana but I have little knowledge of programming. I have some idea of RDBMS. Do you think it will be a worthwhile exercise to attempt learning SAP Hana? Thanks

    Hi There,
    Just the information I was looking for. Thanks for the detailed instructions. I haven’t used it yet but I guess the time has come.

    My question is basically the out come of the hash partitioning test with an integer column. I have raised a question on the hash function: how it generate hash number on an integer column. We want to override hash function according to our need so that it will suit out business need. Is there any way we can override the hash function?
    Kind Regards,
