If you want to ensure your career growth then your best bet is SAP HANA.
SAP has positioned HANA as the database as well as the platform on which all applications will run in the future.
This migration is already starting to happen.
Also HANA is extremely sell-able to clients looking to invest in IT as it is both the now and the future.
The career in HANA is quite enriching and would go a long way.
“SAP HANA has become the fastest growing software product in the world.”
The knowledge of ABAP may help in understanding the Business logic implementation. It is an advantage, but not mandatory.
However if you are already an experienced ABAP programmer and thinking: “Whether ABAPer time has come to an end?” Then also you should not worry.
There is a new ABAP - Which is SMARTER, LIGHTER and FASTER" - and at the bottom sits SAP HANA powering ABAP silently without any disruption. This is what we call "ABAP FOR SAP HANA".
Learning SAP HANA together with ABAP will give a new boost to your career.
I don't know SAP BW, SAP BO, SAP BI. Can I learn and make career in SAP HANA?
Let’s check it one by one.
SAP Business Information Warehouse (SAP BW):
Knowing BW helps you in understanding Modeling concepts and when you want DXC to transfer data from SAP Business Suite System to HANA.
But even if you don't have the knowledge of BW, you can easily learn HANA Modeling concepts.
BW knowledge is a must if you are going to work on
BW on HANA.
SAP BusinessObjects (BO):
BO or Business Objects is the Front end Reporting tool set from SAP.
If you have knowledge of BO then reporting on HANA would be a piece of cake for you.
But even if you don't have knowledge of BO, when you start learning HANA Concepts on Reporting you will be easily able learn BO concepts.
You might want to gain the understanding of different reporting tools in BO (Explorer, WebI etc). There are many step by step guides that can help you to learn these tools.
BI or SAP BI is the Data Warehousing package implementation tool from SAP.
The realization of Data Warehousing Concepts in SAP BI will help understand the implementation aspects from BW on HANA perspective.
Again unless you are planning to work on BW on HANA, you don't necessarily have to learn SAP BI.
As we discussed earlier, prior knowledge of SAP is an advantage, but it is not must.
Java, PHP, Python, .NET works pretty well with SAP HANA
