Career Growth in SAP HANA:
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.”

To know more, check the article Top 10 Reasons Customers Choose SAP HANA

Let’s take a look into the SAP HANA from a beginner's point of view and get some answers.

What are the prerequisite to learn SAP HANA?

At its core, SAP HANA is like a relational database. You should know Database Concepts and should have basic knowledge of SQL before starting SAP HANA.

You can find plenty of materials on web on database concepts and SQL. Or let me Google that for you. :)

Is ABAP required to learn SAP HANA?
NO.
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.

SAP BI:
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.
Can people with varied background (JAVA, PHP, .NET, JavaScript, HTML etc.) and no prior SAP knowledge be able to succeed in SAP HANA?

As we discussed earlier, prior knowledge of SAP is an advantage, but it is not must.
If you are from different technology background like JAVA, JavaScript, PHP etc you can still step into SAP HANA and upgrade your resume.

Java, PHP, Python, .NET works pretty well with SAP HANA

What are the SAP HANA certifications and how does it help in boosting my career?
SAP offers 2 main certification paths.
1 path is for administration and operations and is considered more technical.
The 2nd path is for implementation and modeling.

To know more about them, check the article SAP HANA Certification

If I want to make a career in SAP HANA what is the roadmap?
SAP HANA Career Roadmap

If you want a career in HANA there are several areas you can specialize in such as:
The SAP HANA Modeling
In this role you will need SAP HANA modeling skills. SAP BW on HANA skills will also come in handy for you.
The SAP HANA Modeler learning roadmap also has an associate and professional certification that will boost your career.
The SAP HANA Application Development
In this role you will need the SAP HANA development skill. Based on the application types HANA XS or ABAP on HANA knowledge will also be helpful.
The SAP HANA Database Administration and Security
In this role you will be responsible for backup/recovery, performance, security and general administration on the SAP HANA database.
The SAP HANA Data Replication – SLT Replication, BODS and DXC

This topic is not finished yet. We will come up with a more specific and time-line based roadmap.

  1. Anuj says:

    This looks like very interesting piece of information. I was always wondering if i could learn SAP HANA being someone who does not know anything about ABAP. It answers it well.

  2. Hi Author,

    I am from a complete Non-Technical background having experience in business management at a mid-management level for 14 years.
    I consulted many colleagues and SAP certified friends on learning SAP and everyone had their own version that was not encouraging at all.

    Finally, after spending a month on researching Blogs and websites and in understanding the Challenges and Opportunities, I decided to learn SAP HANA.

    It is definitely an investment and a Solid career path that i am carving for myself and this is not just to prove it others but I honestly want to learn SAP.

    I am very thankful to you for sharing so much of information at a basic level and as a Tutorial subject for beginners on this website.
    I could understand the entire concept of RDBMS and SQL to some extent without much difficulty and I am hoping to use this information practically into my HANA classes.

    Thank you very much,

    Regards,
    Bharath Kumar

    • kishore says:

      Hi, thanks for valuable information. Please suggest me as I am having 4+ years of sap Abap experience. How good to walk into hanaa. Actually are there any requirements going on for people with exp sap background and nil hanaa exp. How all recruitment will go on for a exp person like me.

      • Admin says:

        Hi Kishore,
        Currently there are requirements for both ABAP as well as HANA. But considering the market trend, it will be an excellent idea to learn HANA.
        SAP is slowly moving all the components to HANA and ERP, CRM etc are already done. Learning HANA will give you extra edge.

    Hi
    I am a Instrumentation Technology engineer and I have just now graduated. I wanted to know the prerequisites for SAP. I am not from Computer science background. Will it be difficult for me to learn without computer science background?
    Thank you

  8. Venkat says:

    Hello,

    It is a very useful site. It answers most of my questions and there are lot of training materials. Thanks a lot.

    I have few questions. In the pre-requisite section, you have mentioned that BW/BI knowledge is not needed and it is only an added advantage if a person has experience on the same. I have 7 years of ABAP experience and no knowledge on BI. I am planning to learn Hana Modelling. In the career section for modelling, you have mentioned that HANA modelling coupled with “BW on HANA” is in high demand. Will there be opportunities for person like me having ABAP and HANA Modelling skills alone ( Without BI Knowlede) ?

    Waiting for your reply. Thanks.

    • Admin says:

      Hi Venkat,
      Having a good ABAP knowledge is definitely an advantage.
      You can not only learn HANA modeling but can also learn “ABAP on HANA” and give a new boost to your career.

      As we also mentioned in the article-
      “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.”

      There are many projects going on for ABAP code optimization to leverage the power of HANA. For such kind of projects companies are looking for people having knowledge of both HANA and ABAP.

        • Admin says:

          Hi,

          As you are ABAP expert, learning ABAP on HANA will be easy for you. I will suggest you that learn the HANA basic concepts first. And then based on your interest take the next step.

  9. Renu says:

    Hi,

    I have around 7 years of exp in mainframe technology.Can you please let me know if i can jump into Hana and get some good opportunities.
    Thanks,

    • Admin says:

      Hi Renu,
      Do you have experience in Mainframe IMS or DB2? If yes, that means you are aware of basic database functionality. You can directly jump to learn HANA using our HANA Basic Course (http://saphanatutorial.com/sap-hana-training-basic-tutorial/).

      In case you have no experience in DB2/IMS and do not have even the basic database knowledge. Then I would suggest you to spend few hours to learn basic database features. No need to go into deep details. Have a basic learning of database features like Table, Schema, View etc and then go for the HANA Basic Course.

      Good Luck!!

    Hi,

    I have 8 years experience in software testing and have experience of only basic SQL. I have also good BI/BW knowledge.
    But I see that in many of the HANA job openings, advanced SQL is being asked like stored procedures, joins, etc.
    Can I make a career in SAP HANA on BW without using advanced SQL?
    Please clarify if advanced SQL is mandatory to work in HANA modeling job, as I want to go for HANA certification.

    Hi,

    I have done MCA & currently working in MNC in mainframe technology since 1.5 years. I got to know about SAP HANA from a senior, that HANA has good scope in near future. I am more interested in database since my graduation, but I could not make career in it & even in my career experience of 1.5 years in mainframe, I did not get chance to work in DB2 or IMS.

    So could you please suggest whether HANA will be good career for me, and even I want to know what is the duration & cost for HANA training & certification??

    Thanks,
    Neha.

    • Admin says:

      Hi Neha,
      As you mentioned that you are interested in database since your graduation, I believe you have good knowledge on basic concept of database.
      It does not matter whether you worked on other database like DB2 or not. You can directly jump to learn HANA.
      Career in HANA is quite enriching. This is the future of all database.

      We are providing free online courses on HANA and certification information too. Please check the menu option on top of the page for more details info on that.

    Hi

    i have 3 years of experience in SAP BASIS but i dont have any experience in migration concepts ,

    is it necessary to have knowledge on migration concept for learning SAP HANA migration concepts

    • Admin says:

      Hi Pavan,
      You should have basic concept of migration before starting. But why are you planning to restrict yourself only to HANA migration concept? You can also learn HANA modeling, administration etc altogether.

    Hi,

    i have completed B.Sc-Statistics, MBA-HR, and i have 4yrs of exp in HR&Admin.
    i am interested to do SAP HANA FOR CLOUD Certification, but i don’t have any experience in SAP at the same time i don’t have the SQL and BW,BI skills.
    is that HANA for cloud is the better course for me or not as per my Education background.

    Regards
    mani.

    • Admin says:

      We will recommend you to learn it step by step. If you interested in SAP HANA For Cloud certification, you should first learn basic of HANA and then move to Cloud.
      Knowledge of SQL will be required a little bit. But that is not a constraint for you. You may parallely spend few hours and learn SQL too. Only a basic knowledge of SQL would be enough.

  31. sagar says:

    dear sir…

    • Admin says:

      Hi Sagar,
      ABAP and HANA are now 2 main technology in SAP. Learning “ABAP on HANA” will be more effective than learning only ABAP. I will recommend you to learn SAP HANA. Further you may learn ABAP and “ABAP on HANA”.

    Thanks for giving helpfull info.

    I have 3.6 yrs of experience as a MAINFRAMES Developer(cobol,jcl,vsam,cics,db2), I would like to move into different technology for better career growth.
    Could you please advice which technology is good for me?

    Iam thinking about HANA, please advice which module is good to start career in HANA with mainframes experience.

    Modeling?
    Application Development?
    Database Administration?
    Data Replication?

    Thanks in advance for your advice.

    • Admin says:

      Hi Sreenivas,
      The job profile in HANA are mainly in 2 areas.
      SAP HANA Development and SAP HANA Administration.

      SAP HANA Development – It is basically developer role where you will be responsible for developing modeling views, procedures, services etc. If you are interested in developer role, then it would be a good idea to check the course SAP HANA Advanced Modeling

      SAP HANA Administration – This is admin role you you will be responsible for HANA installation, support and maintenance. This job profile does not include development but rather support. Currently there are many companies looking for HANA administrator and you can easily grab a good opportunity. The course will help you for this.

      The decision should be based on your interest. If you are interested in development then go for SAP HANA Development. But if you are interested in HANA Operation, support and maintenance then go for SAP HANA Administration.

      One last piece of information that might affect your decision – currently job requirements are SAP HANA Administration are more. 🙂

I am a B.Com graduate with Company Secretary Intermediate working for a nationalized bank in Mumbai in the clerical cadre. I am 30 and I would like to pursue a fresh career in SAP HANA. Are there any requisite qualifications required for pursuing the same. I only possess basic programming skills in C and C++. Does this field allow freelancing too so that I can initially pursue it with my current job to change over later. Please guide…

  50. praveen says:

    Hi I have 2 yrs of expernce in java can I put my past experience on Hana

    • Admin says:

      Hi Praveen,
      Java and SAP HANA are quite different technologies. Although currently there are few projects going on where both the technologies are involved.
      Note that from Java, you can connect to HANA using JDBC and create applications. But learning wise they are totally different.

      But if you learn HANA, you can definitely give a new boost to your career.

      We will recommend to learn HANA Basic course

      Hi Prathap,
      There are 2 things required for doing hands-on on SAP HANA. SAP HANA server and HANA Studio tool.
      HANA Studio is very light-weight and can be installed in any laptop.
      For HANA server, you can use trail account in SAP HANA Cloud. For this again laptop does not matter 🙂

      In short, you can learn HANA from any laptop or even tab devices.

    Thanking you and Awaiting response

    • Admin says:

      Hi Sharada,
      Almost all the SAP modules are now directly or indirectly connected with HANA. As a sales person you should atleast have the basic idea of HANA. Now a days customers are also looking for HANA products. Having HANA knowledge will definitely help you while dealing with customers.

    Hi Admin,

    I have about 5years of eperience in to marketing and Business development. Now i wish to shift to IT sector, and thought to choose a module from SAP. I really dont have any knowledge of Programming..know a bit of sql and DB concepts. I am really confused to choose between HANA & ABAP…. Can you please help me out to choose the best one which aids me in my career. I am also planning for H1.

    • Admin says:

      Hi Satvik,
      As you are from a non technical background, SAP HANA consultant role may be good for you. As a consultant, you need not to do programming, however you would need to have good knowledge on HANA. ABAP is an programming knowledge, and as you said you dont have any programming knowledge, learning ABAP will be a little difficult for you.

  80. Syed says:

    Hi,

    As for any job, how do we handle the “SAP HANA or Database” experience requirement? Is there an alternative to actual work experience …such as certification or ‘live project’ or something that will be counted. In other words how do we get to the interview level…cracking is a different story.

    Thanks.

    • Admin says:

      Hi Syed,
      There are many certifications available from SAP. Although certifications are not exactly equaivalent of experience, having ceritification in your resume will get you interview calls.
      You can also attend the HANA trainings like HA300, HA150 etc. These trainings also increase your chances of getting interview calls.

    Great answers are appreciated…!!!!

    • Admin says:

      Hi Sai,
      SAP HANA is a database as well as a complete platform to develop end to end application. There are many roles and job profiles possible in HANA. For example:
      HANA Modeler: This is mainly related with data modeling in HANA. There is no programming involved except few SQL Scipts.
      HANA Developer: This includes HANA Modeling as well as HANA XS development. HANA XS includes Javascript programming and OData/XSJS.
      HANA Administrator: This is more related with Administration, Support and installation/maintenance activities.

      Based on your interest, you may try for the the role HANA Modeler or Administrator.

    First of all very thanks and appreciable for all your valuable information for many of us.
    i have some confusion, so if you clarify them, it is appreciate
    I will complete my post graduation from computer science stream in 2015 itself. As from this stream i know both programming as well as database concepts up to some extent.
    Now i want to move profession and career towards SAP and HANA as well.
    so i got many suggestions from my well wishers that for me it is better to learn initially SAP ABAP and then move to SAP HANA. some other saying it is better to learn SAP MM and do HANA.
    Here i am confusing which module should i have to learn to go to HANA..,??
    Is it good idea, suppose i will do SAP MM and i will choose later as HANA Consultant..?? is HANA CONSULTANT has good future..,
    Please clarify my doubts,..

    Thanks and Regards,
    Hari..

    • Admin says:

      Hi Hari,
      Thanks for the feedback.
      HANA Consultant is a good career option. However if you combine it with a SAP module it becomes even more lucrative. If you search the job portals, you will see lots of opening for BW on HANA, HANA Consultant, HANA Administrator, ABAP on HANA.
      I will suggest you to first learn the HANA basics and then learn either ABAP or BW or any SAP module. Even if you learn only HANA, you still will have a good chance to get a job.

      Hi Vishal,
      There are not much link between PHP and HANA. If you are looking for technology change then HANA is definitely good option. You can learn, complete a certification and start exploring it.
      No, you do not need Java to learn HANA.

  98. Srushti says:

    Hi Admin,

    Good Day.

    I have gone through this forum, really interesting and motivating me to switch to SAP HANA sphere.

    I have 15 years of experience in S/W Testing in Java/.NET/Mainframes. But, I do not have any experience in SAP area. Also, I do not have programming exp. But, I have basic level database knowledge.

    Furthermore, regarding career paths, you have specified 3 types: (HANA Modeler / HANA Developer/ HANA Administrator).

    I have many concerns as follows: I am sincerely requesting you to clarify me for each concern individually, if you do not mind.

    1) What is the difference between roles- SAP HANA developer Vs SAP HANA Consultants roles?

    2) Does programming skills require for HANA Consultant and HANA Modeler?

    3) What are techno-function , functional etc. in SAP techn?

    4) Does this SAP HANA tutorial cover latest version HANA 1.0 SP 9 or SP10?

    5) Regarding getting job opportunity: What are all the challenges/possibilities of getting job opportunity in HANA without having any prior
    experience in SAP tech? Do employers expect any experience in other SAP skills also, if I wish to get the job in SAP HANA? (E.g. Business Intelligence background ( such as SAP BI/BW/ Cognos /BOBJ SAP services.)

    I have seen many SAP HANA jobs (in Australia) along with SAP HANA, mostly they are expecting the experience in other areas of SAP skills (E.g. Business Intelligence background ( such as SAP BI/BW/ Cognos /BOBJ SAP services.) also.

    6) What are minimum number of experience required in SAP HANA to get the job?

    7) What are all the challenges involved once, I get the job in SAP HANA without having real time experience ? Since, I know, real time experience and learning experience is entirely different.

    So, I am really confused and worrying whether I need to learn other SAP skills along with SAP HANA.

    Please advise me on above each item wise if you do not mind, so that, I wish I can take decision to switch to SAP HANA from S/w Testing field.

    Thank you so much for your patience on clarifying my doubts above in advance.

      Hi Srushti,
      Please find the answers below:

      1) What is the difference between roles- SAP HANA developer Vs SAP HANA Consultants roles?
      Ans: Read the article: http://saphanatutorial.com/how-to-become-hana-consultant/

      2) Does programming skills require for HANA Consultant and HANA Modeler?
      Ans: For HANA Modeler, you need basic database and SQL knowledge.
      For consultant read the article: http://saphanatutorial.com/how-to-become-hana-consultant/

      3) What are techno-function , functional etc. in SAP techn?
      SAP is a fast world.
      Ans: There are many SAP modules like ERP, CRM, SCM etc. These modules are in market for a long time. The jobs required for these modules may be either technical or functional or techno-functional type.
      Technical: Involves only code and programming
      Functional: No Programming/Code. Functional knowledge includes business knowledge, how application should work etc.
      Techno-functional: Includes both

      Similarly for HANA, there can be technical or functional or techno-functional roles. HANA being relatively new, most company looks for either technical or techno-functional people.

      4) Does this SAP HANA tutorial cover latest version HANA 1.0 SP 9 or SP10?
      Ans: We try to update our materials as per the latest version. Few topics introduced in SP9 or 10 has not been covered yet.
      But be assured that whatever we have posted, are as per the latest version.

      5) Regarding getting job opportunity: What are all the challenges/possibilities of getting job opportunity in HANA without having any prior
      experience in SAP tech? Do employers expect any experience in other SAP skills also, if I wish to get the job in SAP HANA? (E.g. Business Intelligence background ( such as SAP BI/BW/ Cognos /BOBJ SAP services.)

      I have seen many SAP HANA jobs (in Australia) along with SAP HANA, mostly they are expecting the experience in other areas of SAP skills (E.g. Business Intelligence background ( such as SAP BI/BW/ Cognos /BOBJ SAP services.) also.

      Ans: Having knowledge of BW or ABAP r BI Tools increases your chance to get the job. But even without it you have a good chance.

      6) What are minimum number of experience required in SAP HANA to get the job?
      Anss: This all depends on the job profile, company and project. However if you have good knowledge, you can overcome the experience barrier a bit.

      7) What are all the challenges involved once, I get the job in SAP HANA without having real time experience ? Since, I know, real time experience and learning experience is entirely different.
      Ans: This again depends on your project and work. HANA is an evolving technology and every new SP has something new. But if you are willing to spend few extra hours in your work and keep learning these things you will not face much problem.

      Hope I was able to help you clearing your doubts. Good Luck!

    Hello,

    I have 5+ years of exprience in SAP security with exprience in Greenfiled SAP implementation and rollout projects in Asia, Europe and America.Currently i i am working as solution architect to define the role concepts for an major project which includes SAP and non-SAP systems. I have exposure on SAP-BI, but i always like to work in SAP -BI if i get an apportunity. Would it be beneficial if i learn SAP-HANA based on my current scenario and if i consider future perspective?. My current role more at business level to understsand the process and define the role concepts including process flows etc.I am confused about what next? Continuing in the same as Security consultant or switch to SAP HANA would be better. Can anyone guide me on this ? it would help me a lot to decide further.

    Hi Team,
    I have been working in the .net domain for the past 2 years. We build web applications on SQL. I enrolled myself into a couple courses in opensap and openhpi platforms and now I have a basic idea of how in-memory DB and HANA work.I figured learning & getting certified in HANA would be useful. I have no knowledge on ABAP. I have read your answers to all the previous questions. Since i donot know ABAP, will I not be able to go into the technical side after learning HANA ? Am I restricted to be an SAP HANA Modeler until I learn ABAP or XS? What would be my career scope if i get certified on HANA along with the asp.net & sql knowledge i have?

    Thanks a lot

    Hello Admin, Thank you for writing these simple and easy to understand articles on SAP HANA. We need to really appreciate your efforts on this. I’m a SAP SD Consultant with basic understanding of ABAP. As we see the ERP is hitting end of the road with the introduction of S4 HANA. With the introduction of Functional modules in S4 HANA like Simple Finance and Simple Logistics on the S4 HANA platform, is it advisable to learn HANA as a technical components to get early advantage or just stick with the Simple Finance and Logistics functional components as I’m already a SAP Functional consultant?

    Your inputs are highly appreciated. Thank You. Anil.

      Hello Aditya,

      There are Admin parts in SAP HANA, where programming would be less, and functional knowledge would be more.

  125. Jacklyn says:

    I have been working mainly as developer but also have functional background in SAP HR,MM and SD. I have started as Java developer then switched to ABAP(incl. ABAP OO and HR ABAP) and also developed couple of UI5 applications for my company. I have some 6 years of experience altogether. Now, I’m not sure if I should go for “ABAP for HANA”.Is it same as “HANA application development” course? Is it just about ABAP(faster and smarter version)? I would also like to use my JAVA, C++, Javascript or UI5 skills. Should I then go for Web Based Development on HCP? I’m not sure which course or area is good for my career growth. Both are interesting enough for me.

    Thanks for your reply in advance!

    • Admin says:

      Hello Jack,

      Sorry, we got confused in so many questions, but as far from the development experience you mentioned,
      we could assume the following path would be worth to pursue.

      >> HANA Cloud Application design HTML5, UI5

      Thanks,

    Yes, it would provide an edge to your career. Already, there are requirements posted about ABAP Developer knows about SAP HANA.

    Hi ,

    Firslty, I would like to thank you for all your valuable exposure that you have provided about SAP HANA.
    This is an excellent forum to search for Hot technologies for career.

    Question : I have 4.5 years of experience in SAP Security and autorization but dont have any experiencein SAP BASIS. Will it be good if I choose HANA DBA for my career. How much HANA DB is different than Normal SAP BASIS.

    Thanks & regards
    Neeraj

    • Admin says:

      Hello Neeraj,

      It’s completely different entity, SAP HANA is a database , whereas SAP Basis is administration layer for SAP ERP system.
      But, as discussed in the topic, there is no such prerequisite.

      Thanks,
      Admin

  129. sanath says:

    Hi,

    Is it necessary to learn sap basis to be hana admin ?

    • Admin says:

      Hello,

      No, there is no such prerequisite, SAP Basis is a completely different application than SAP HANA.
      SAP HANA is a database, whereas SAP Basis is an administration layer to govern SAP ERP system and networking other stuffs.

      SAP HANA Database runs beneath it , runs on hardware and OS layer.
      So, there no prerequisite for learning HANA, knowledge on simple Database concepts would help a little, that’s all.

      Thanks,
      Admin

    Hello Admin,

    I am so glad that I have come across this link. You have provided clear information about SAP HANA for beginners. Thanks so much.
    I am working as an SAP BO developer and I have basic knowledge about SAP BW 3.5 and BI 7.0.
    Could you please suggest me whether these online materials will be enough to learn SAP HANA or any classroom training is required?
    Please advice.

    Thank you!
    Srikanth K.

    • Admin says:

      We would like to suggest you must get some hands on , you may find a rented server for SAP HANA , and you could practice for that .
      The materials specially in modeling areas are covered a lot more than needed and some of training centers actually follow these online materials for classroom coaching :).

      but, as we mentioned , you may rent an SAP HANA serve for a month or twice and practice them, you can email us back and ask your qiueries.

  132. lucasetor says:

    As an Oracle DBA with SQL experience, can I jump into studying HANA? What considerations need to be made regarding prerequisites? I have no knowledge whatsoever of SAP.

    • Admin says:

      Hello,

      No prerequisite is there at all, anybody could learn it, and you already possess experience in database technology, it would provide an edge for you.
      So, answer your question is yes you can, there are two aspects 1) Administration 2)Development , if you like coding much you may choose for Development, and for the other thing you could go for Administration.

      What you need , we believe, could be as following……..
      1) A rented HANA server for practising
      2) Online Courses we are offering
      http://saphanatutorial.com/sap-hana-online-courses/
      3) In case, for better understanding, you may choose for classroom coaching provided by some local trainer skilled in SAP HANA

      We will be offering videos explaining HANA aspects to explain in a better fashion, it would be launched soon.

      Thanks for being with us.

    Hi, I am a Business Management professional with experience in Operations, Sales and Service Delivery, i have been reading about the future of HANA and would like to make a shift, however not sure whether i will be able to leverage my functional experience and how much of technicality this subject entails. If i could know some basics fundamentals which i need to know so that i am able to pick up the subject.

    Regards
    Leonard

    • Admin says:

      Hello Leonard,

      Thanks for contacting, through this comment you actually raised a valid concern, that is if a professional is pursuing for an SAP HANA Business Consultant role or Sales Executive role or Package Solution Consultant role, then how should he/she stay prepared ? Which kind of topics to be followed in that scenario? He/ she needs articles where stuffs described in less technical and covered from more business perspectives.

      Okay, frankly we don’t have online courses or a series of articles which is focused and designed in less technical aspects and from more business perspective.
      But, you may follow this Fast Track course, where we tried to keep programming, technical stuffs as little as possible.
      http://saphanatutorial.com/fast-track-to-sap-hana-sap-hana-online-training
      You may ignore the technical part in that course. The course would help you to know basics and it is open to all, no sign-up, nothing is required.

      But, surely, this is where we would work on , online courses for SAP HANA Business Consultants.
      It also would be an interesting part for us to design such courses.

      Hope we could answer you appropriately.
      Have a great day !!! 🙂

    Hello Sir,

    Thanks a lot for your creative & Innovative approach to make oneself learn hana and related things very easily with this website.

    The question i would like to ask is:
    I have 4 years of experience in Sales & Marketing with a reputed MNC. recently i come across SAP & Hana thing. i read above comments and also the prerequisite mentioned here.
    however, i was not completely satisfied because i have completed my education in Humanities and Diploma in Marketing.

    is it possible or advisable for completely non-technical background person to learn HANA since i know no programming language and if yes what is the field in HANA i should focus upon and go specialized to.

    Your help is highly appreciable.

    • Admin says:

      Hello Bablu,

      As you are from a non technical background, SAP HANA consultant role may be good for you. As a consultant, you need not to do programming, however you would need to have good knowledge on HANA. ABAP is an programming knowledge, and as you said you don’t have any programming knowledge, learning ABAP will be a little difficult for you.

      SAP HANA is completely different from other SAP products, it’s a database, it can be started without prior knowledge on other SAP products, you can start learning, by the way the technology has a very high demand in corporate. You may start learning by following the URL …

    • Admin says:

      Hello Satish

      You can definitely go for SAP HANA but it totally depends upon your interest.
      As you would have already read in prerequisites article, there are no hard and fast preskills needed to learn SAPHANA. With emergence of SAP HANA Cloud Platform(HCP), it opens a lot for opportunities for mobile app developers too.You could now develop, deploy,test and run cloud application targeted for tablet, mobile or web.

      Hello,

      Learning SAP HANA is not at all deoendednt with any other SAP Modules, it’s a database technology, if you learn well this , then you could pursue for BW on HANA or ABAP on HANA or BI/BO on HANA etc .

      To start with SAP HANA, we recommend you to go through this url.

        Hi Swarup,

        Thanks for the reply. When I go thru the links given by you, I came to know that HANA is about Database and administration, however when I visited some institutes they are teaching about the development of HANA not administration part. If HANA is a development what we really develop ? Please advise.

        • Admin says:

          Hello,

          HANA is a database, now an application developer could build tools, applications running on HANA.
          This is a development work . A company could build a framework to drive his business which runs on SAP HANA.
          Now, the company hires professionals for its development work . These are other development works on HANA.

          Now, SAP offers the database SAP HANA, and it’s evolving , so the company needs professionals to contribute in this development.
          So, a professional could get this kind of development work .

          It could be of various types. Obviously, as it’s a database, it has administration works too, companies who using SAP HANA they need professionals to perform admin tasks.

          So, it could be both admin, development works, not only that it has other functional aspects based works.
          Moreover, SAP HANA is not just a database now, it has evolved beyond that, it is now a platform, which is extended to a new concept called SAP HANA Cloud Platform. Let’s not get confused with so many terms. Start with the basic course, you would get an understanding of it.

          Feel free to ask questions…. 🙂

          Thanks,
          Admin

    And,

    What are the flavors that HANA is providing.

  147. G Hoffman says:

    Hi. Excellent website with great information. Dice provided a report on best jobs/salaries. Hana was listed at the top. So I did a search and came across your website.
    I have 20+ years database experience as a programmer/analyst. My experience includes SAP, SAS, MS Access, VBA, VB, reporting, and some hyperion. I have worked with various BI software. So my question is this, with an extensive database/reporting/programming experience, would it be relatively easy to study/learn Hana and get certified?

    Thanks,
    Ginger

    • Admin says:

      Hello,

      Your knowledge on database concepts and BI tools would be helpful, cause although it’s an in-memory database technology, but still query processing with SQLscripts, Modeling views with Tables & Views, some basic db admin stuffs etc would be similar.

      Thanks,
      Admin

    Hi Admin,

    Information provided is very helpful.

    I am a SAP Business One Consultant. I have functional knowledge(2.6 Years) and also knows the basics of SQL.
    Will this experience be helpful to get a job for SAP Hana after completing SAP Hana course.

    Regards,
    Amey Ballal

    • Admin says:

      Hello,

      SQL knowledge would help you in learning SAP HANA aspects, if you do not possess a real time experience in SAP HANA, go for a SAP HANA certification.

      Sometimes the certification is not even needed, but it depends on the profile strength and recruiter’s expectations. Certification would boost the possibility of getting an SAP HANA job.

      Lot more options exist, even in business side too, you might need to choose by yourself.

      We are here to talk about SAP HANA (the in-memory database and platform from SAP), so we could tell you SAP HANA is well demanding and flourishing.
      It doesn’t have any prerequisite, anybody could learn.

      Thanks,

    please reply.

    • Admin says:

      Hello,

      There is no doubt that SAP HANA is well demanding and flourishing, in a couple of years ago, it started as an in-memory database, now it has evolved as in-memory platform with cloud options, new directions are emerging.

      If you are doubtful about jobs, you might have a look on our SAP HANA job section.
      http://saphanatutorial.com/sap-hana-jobs/

      We always recommend to start with the SAP HANA basic course which covers the fundamental concepts and overview.
      The course could be access by browsing the following url. It’s open to all, just browse through it.

    • Admin says:

      Hello,

      You might pursue for SAP HANA Administration , but actually it really doesn’t matter, cause SAP HANA is a completely different aspect not related to any other function module. All paths emerging from it is already demanding and have further scope of expanding in the future.

      But, yes to start with something, you might go for SAP HANA Administration.

      Thanks,

    • Admin says:

      Hello,

      To learn SAP HANA, you would need an introductory knowledge on database aspects, SQL etc.

      But, you could start with the SAP HANA basic course and ask us while you have any query by sending an email at “admin@saphanatutorial.com”.

  165. Akshay says:

    Hi admin,

    Went through the above post, much appreciated :).

    I am an ABAP consultant with 2+ yrs of exp (ABAP certified) and would be working on upcoming HANA project. From certification perspective I found C_HANAIMP142 & C_HANAIMP151 (Certified Application Associate) and E_HANAAW142 ( Certified Development Specialist – ABAP for SAP HANA). I have been attending training on SAP HANA modelling as well in my current firm and very much contactable with it.

    I have below questions.
    1. I should be looking froward to do which certification C_HANAIMP142 OR C_HANAIMP151 (modelling based) OR E_HANAAW142 (HANA-ABAP) so that I have a good job opportunities / career in future as I am comfortable in both areas looking at the topic areas of these certifications ?
    2. What is difference between C_HANAIMP142 and C_HANAIMP151, is it just the version upgrade or completely different areas/certifications ?
    3. As I am already certified in ABAP, would certifying in HANA modelling (C_HANAIMP142 / C_HANAIMP151) help me boast much more rather than certifying in ABAP for HANA (E_HANAAW142) ?

    Thanks in advance!

    • Admin says:

      Hello,

      Thanks for contacting us. E_HANAAW (HANA-ABAP) certification is a good choice, but you might have a look at C_HANATEC151 (DB Administration).
      This might be interesting for you and quite demanding, as companies are embracing SAP HANA, System Admin has become a well demanding job role.

      The last three digit of the name of a certification like 142 or 151 is a version upgrade, also represents the year of release of the certification.
      SAP HANA is evolving and it’s enhancement is determined by SPS, a new SPS gets released whenever a set of changes done. Most topics of C_HANAIMP142 are addressed till SPS8 whereas C_HANAIMP151 mostly is about SPS9.

    Its a good info you have provided here.
    However, I am a UI professional who has worked on various UI technologies and content management. Currently i’m on a UI5 project and am eager to get into the SAP technologies. My problem is that I do not have a prior SAP experience and think that this would be a bottleneck in pursuing SAP technologies like FIORI, UI5, Odata and HANA. Could you please suggest how should I get used to with SAP systems, architecture and landscape ABAP and learn them quickly to an extent so that I can pursue the technologies i mentioned.

    Thanks,
    Vinod

    • Admin says:

      Hello,

      If you are confused where you could start, we would like to suggest you to start with SAP HANA basic aspects.
      As, SAP HANA is well demanding and a promising one.
      http://saphanatutorial.com/sap-hana-training-basic-tutorial/

      For UI5 and Fiori, currently we are not offering any course.

      Thanks,

      • Vinod says:

        Thanks for your response. But my question is that I come from a non SAP background who just got into working on a UI5 project, i am interested in pursuing a career in SAP technologies as mentioned before but since I am new to SAP environment how can I get myself accustomed to it? what would be the starting point? The SAP HANA course you mentioned would also need some prior SAP background i presume.

        Thanks,
        Vinod

        • Admin says:

          Hello,

          SAP HANA doesn’t have any prerequisite, it’s different from SAP ERP modules, so anybody can start learning the aspects covered in that course.

          SAP offers various kind of solutions like ERP, HANA as in-memory database, HANA as in-memory platform, business suite, data warehousing solutions etc.
          All are different from each other and are huge , have different prerequisites and some of them could be learned by a fresher as like SAP HANA.

          So, the starting point depends on which direction you would choose, for SAP HANA we could tell that you might start from the fundamental aspects which are covered in the course. For other SAP solutions, we couldn’t suggest you , as we are here to talk about SAP HANA and technologies related to SAP HANA….

          Thanks,
          Admin

          • Vinod says:

            Hi Thankyou for your response. Considering my background of 11+ yrs of experience in front-end technologies like html5, javascript, content management etc. What would be best for me if I am to make my career in SAP technologies from here on, I am already in one SAP UI5 based project, I want to learn FIORI, UI5 and HANA. Is this a good option for someone like me who does not come from an ABAP background?

  169. Admin says:

    Hi Vinod,

    You might try to focus on SAP HANA Cloud, Application Design on Cloud, UX design by FIORI etc.
    Also, go through DB administration through HANA Cloud Cockpit. There is no prerequisite for these.

    Register for a free trial cloud access offered by SAP HANA.

      Hello,

      SAP Functional modules are different from the SAP HANA, it’s a database.
      SAP HANA is a completely different direction.

      But, we would like to mention that there is a concept called Simple Finance in S/4 HANA which could be the future of next generation finance based solution. You may pursue for it.

    • Admin says:

      Hi Nisha,
      I guess by QA, you mean quality assurance engineers. Correct me if wrong.
      HANA has different modules/options for different job profiles. Some of them does not require technical profile. For example HANA Administrator, HANA Consultant.
      You may look into those roles.
      Hope I was able to help you resolve your doubt.

      Hi Chandra,
      Sooner or later all SAP modules will move towards HANA. With S4HANA, things have started changing.

As you are already an expert in MM module, learning HANA will definitely open new job opportunities for you.

    I need some suggestion for my younger brother as he is not belong to technical background and not having any experience so is this good idea to move his direction to SAP Hana/IOT?

    he was trying for govt jobs and now it is too much so i thought to start up his career for this sector.

    • Admin says:

      Hi Samar,
      This is a very broad question. What is his educational qualification? Getting a job in IT field requires both – educational qualification and technical knowledge.
      If he is interested in moving to technical field and have enough educational qualification, then off course SAP HANA is a good area for him. Based on the interest, you may also choose SAPUI5/Fiori (UI language). At the same time, get a basic understanding of SAP Cloud Platform too. Below articles may help you to further understand this.
