Session Title


The New Paradigm - Data Modeling in BW on HANA.  How to Think Differently...
Abstract:  This session will review new concepts of data modeling allowed with BW on HANA.  It will review the use cases and benefits of using multiple new provider types, including Composite Providers, Transient Providers, other Virtual Provider types, and HANA-optimized Cubes and DSOs.  The session will discuss concepts of LSA++ in which multiple persistent layers of data are no longer required, and it will walk through several examples of taking existing data flows and consolidating them using the new BW on HANA capabilities.  Finally, the session will review the use cases for HANA "mixed scenarios" in which both Enterprise HANA and BW on HANA are combined to provide wide range of new analytic capabilities.

Full day Hands on workshop: Building Applications which leverage SAP HANA
In this hands-on workshop we will introduce various techniques for building applications on SAP HANA.  We will perform some data modeling.  We will see how to push down data centric processing logic into the HANA database via the usage of SQLScript.  We will then explore both major application server layers – ABAP and HANA Application Services and how they can each be used to build or adapt applications to leverage the power of HANA.
