    I don't think there are any prerequisites, really - and you should sign up for the Open SAP course that will teach you (especially as an ABAP developer) the skills needed - see open.sap.com and register. The course itself is free.

    Hi Jeevan,


    We need to first start with In-memory database concepts.


    SAP is offering 6 weeks free HANA training which is started on 27th May 2013. You will find all videos tutorials on opensap.com. Before starting with actual HANA course (Introduction to Software Development on SAP HANA) itโ€™s good to first go through Warm-Up (Warm-Up: In-Memory Data Management) sessions.


    Here are the links:

    • Warm-Up: In-Memory Data Management:-

    https://open.sap.com/course/hana-warmup

    • Introduction to Software Development on SAP HANA:-

    https://open.sap.com/course/hana1

    • HANA Certification material:

    Happy learning! ๐Ÿ˜Š

      Hi Vinay

      I am SAP BASIS Admin. I want to know following about SAP HANA.

      Is this replacement of SAP NetWeaver?

      In responsibility point of view SAP HANA is SAP BASIS person responsibility?

      Mostly SAP HANA concept say about In-Memeory Data. So with my SAP on DB2 on AIX environment.. I can implement SAP HANA.

      In case of no BW || BI || BO ... still SAP HANA required?

      regards

      Saifuddin

    Hi Jeevan,

    ABAP programmers like you are very much interested to land in SAP HANA and get confused like where they fit and how to start.

    Kumar Mayuresh wrote a document on this and i suggest you to read this thread. After reading this, still you have questions then you can post it.

    Here is the thread.

    Correct forum for you is this one.

    Any questions related to HANA modeling then this is the right space.

    Want to have online training then give email to bwbohana at gmail

    Wish you all the best for your HANA career ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Regards

    Jeevan,

    In general you should be familiar with relational data base ( incl. SQL and procedures, etc..) concepts and multi-dimensional models.

    If you not familiar with any of the above, Google is a good place to start and you can find ton of learning material to get started after which you can start the OpenSAP course. Belive me the OpenSAP course is really good and give you hands-on experience if you have access to an instance. The course content is very well organized with videos, guidance....

    Hope this helps. Good luck!

    Rama

    Hi Jeevan,

    With SAP announcing its future products that would be based on HANA and have applications designed using Fiori ( based on Javascript), do you still feel learning ABAP development on HANA will be of worthwhile for the future ?

    From what I have read on internet, SAP is looking at Technical simplification and of its products in the future and I really do not know where ABAP stands in its plans. Going forward, Javascript and HTML 5 would be the skills to aquire.

    Regards,

    Venkatesh.
