I came into the course not knowing much about HANA itself and now I want my own system so I can continue to learn about the various ways to develop applications on the platform. One can look at SAP HANA as an appliance or something on the cloud but I look at it as a powerful development platform. I will provide a high-level overview mixed with some simple examples of how the development environment integrates into the HANA system.

    SAP HANA Database System
    The SAP HANA Developer guide says it best: “SAP HANA is an in-memory data platform that is deployable as an appliance or in the cloud. At its core, it is an innovative in-memory relational database management system that makes full use of the capabilities of current hardware to increase application performance, to reduce cost of ownership, and to enable new scenarios and applications that were not possible before.”

    With the HANA development environment, you can create applications that integrate the business logic with the database, providing the system with amazing performance by minimizing where the data is processed. You gain the advantage of running applications in memory, and closer to the CPUs. To gain a perspective of this architecture let’s cover the system in sections.
