HANA is not a data warehouse, but a platform, on the platform user can build a data warehouse or bazaar, reporting and dashboard, etc.

Through SAP HANA we can directly access to the operational data, without affecting the performance of the SAP ERP and other operating systems. Enterprise can be traded near at real time to put the main table synchronization into memory, so that at the time of analysing or finding it is easy to access these tables. Once the data can be accessed through memory, from various departments can book documents, sales leads, such as large service requirements in the list to find a single line item, and will not have any impact on the operating system. The efficient modeling process support to provide detail line direct access to the model of the project, and support more complex analysis model of the analysis process.
SAP HANA provide from concept to analysis the efficient work flow. The workflow covers the entire process, from the identification of related operation data (convert raw data into information), to generate grouped by semantic information in the model, complete model is finally released. The main difference of SAP HANA and traditional analysis model is abandoning any materialistic things, namely, all models are completely virtual, specific operational data are based on the basic calculation results. In this way, the model can be easily modified.
SAP HANA can access any data.When enterprises need operational data of no-SAP application, or want to extend the basis of the existing analysis model, any data source can be used as a data base of SAP HANA.Use SAP BusinessObjects data services components to the SAP operating load data into SAP HANA memory, so that enterprises can extremely to streamline the process to create a complete view of a specific business scenarios.
SAP HANA added easy-to-use modeling experience to further improve the autonomy of business users.View follows the semantic rules to make the original operational data into understandable information, therefore, business users can independently in the Web
based modeling environment to create a new analysis model.
SAP BusinessObjects business intelligence analysis tools can use SAP HANA memory data directly, make the business users to be able to fully use all of its high-performance applications of insight and analysis capabilities.However, if the user wants to use Excel or other tools and applications for data analysis, they can through the MDX, such as SQL standard interface to connect to the SAP HANA.
SAP HANA provide a standard interface for existing applications, operating system or other business applications .This means that the SAP HANA will not upset sources existing system architecture because of the connection to the existing data, and easily use BI existing client. As a comprehensive solution for real-time analysis, SAP HANA can help companies to reap the benefits as soon as possible.
