Integration of Social Media with SAP HANA

Hi All,

I am looking forward to get an idea on how I can integrate social media with SAP HANA?

For exp , taking data for twitter and feeding it into HANA ,and than doing analysis or reporting of these data in HANA.

I have searched on this on SDN , and found couple of terms which people are talking about regarding this :

  • Twitter API
  • JSON
  • SAP data service

Now coming to my background , I am an abap developer so none of these terms make much sense to me.

What I am looking for is :

  • some idea about these terms
  • how these are related to each other in performming the specified task (Integrating social media with HANA). i.e which of these is playing which role in whole process
  • Is there any other thing required for this process.
  • skill set required in this process( as somewhere I have read involvement of python or php also in such process..)

Looking for valubale guidance and suggestions.

Thanks in Advance.

    I have yet not tried to integrate HANA with social media (APIs). First if you just want ti use SAP HANA and those APIs I guess a post in the SAP HANA Community would be a better choice for more valuable answers.

    Basically if you want to use those web / http based APIs you should first of all get some knowledge in JavaScript and how JSON works ( Afterwards you should take a look at some examples provided by the social media provider API of your choice.

    The skillset afterwards strongly depends on the scenario how you want to present the data you stored in HANA (e.g XS Engine / ODBC Connection / ABAP Server / ...).
