What is SAP HANA?
SAP HANA is a super-fast in-memory database enabling new possibilities in terms of analytical reporting and real-time data acquisition and consumption.
Does Galigeo support HANA ?
YES, with BI*Where for SAP BI4.
SAP BI4 supports natively HANA through WebIntelligence/Universe.
How can I best leverage SAP HANA with Web Intelligence/BI*Where?
In order to leverage the in-memory capabilities of SAP HANA, all the calculations and aggregations have to be done in SAP HANA for high performance analytical reporting. In this scenario, Web Intelligence should avoid pre-loading too much data into local cache (microcube) as this could cause performance issue due to too much data crossing the network, loading the data into the microcube and displaying the data into Webi. Web Intelligence only needs to retrieve the results calculated by HANA, needed for the report.
