This session provides an overview on SAP HANA studio, the application that is used for data modeling as
well as administration. Covered topics are: look and feel, user administration, data modeling, system
troubleshooting, SQL console.
•
The session will show the basic concept how a HANA database can utilized for accelerating programs in
the ERP environment by accessing data from a connected HANA database containing replicated ERP-tables
and views. It will also cover the strengths and weaknesses of HANA when called in that context, and
contains a demo on SE16H, the table content display enhanced for HANA. It is addressing colleagues who
focus on ABAP programming and are interested to learn how to work with a HANA database

SAP HANA Certification Exam preparation
Experience from other Consultants
who have passed the test
1. Review e-learning courses for Application consultant
2. HA100 and HA300 courses will certainly get you most of the way.
3. There were few questions that would require some practical experience (at least
completing the CO-PA scenario helps) and very few required out of box thinking ;)
4. Modeling/Reporting/Data provisioning were the heaviest.
5. Security/Business Content were light and easy.
6. Optimization was light but tricky.
Additional Tips- Over view & Business
Content
•Different components of HANA database ( Studio is not part of the database)
•Perspectives in HANA Studio
•Advantages of HANA
•Faster than ERP/OLTP & OLAP in one system/Real-time analytics etc.
•System Setup
•Sequence of steps; System setup/Data Provisioning/Modeling/Consumption
•Understand Accelerator high level concepts
•Advantages (pre-built content, faster implementation etc.)
•What accelerator is recommended for a given scenario (for e.g. to measure
profitability, CO-PA accelerator for HANA would be recommended)
•BW on HANA
•What is needed to have BW run on HANA? (Migrate database; convert to HANA
object types etc.) Remember that BWA is no longer needed.
Understand HANA Use Cases, CO-PA

Modeling
Recommendations for good modeling
For e.g. CE Functions vs SQL; Scenarios that require data intensive logic sent to
database instead of at reporting layer; Recommendations in SQL Script etc.
Various scenarios and recommended techniques
For e.g. Need to filter data for a year. Where is the recommended place to do this?
Reporting/Analytical View/Data foundation etc.
Recommend reading development guide available. Last chapter has good modeling
techniques and best practices
