ABAP and SAP HANA : Combination

Hi All,

I believe it would help lot of people who are in 2 minds

I have few questions regarding SAP HANA...

I have been working as SAP ABAP Consultant for 7 years and learned SAP HANA(sp4) and got certified in SAP HANA way in 2012

When i learned SAP HANA , it was all about moving data from ECC system tables using BODS and creating procedures,views etc...

When i look for job posting there are no requirements for HANA with data movement from ECC...

All clients are looking for BW on HANA.......

So now i'm thinking of learning on ABAP on SAP HANA....

So my questions are

1) I'm in right direction in going ABAP on SAP HANA or Should i keep looking for SAP HANA Developer (Just Creating views jobs which i doubt exist ) without any BW

2)If your answer is to go for ABAP on SAP HANA - is it good without any BW exp and how difficult it would be for some like me with both SAP ABAP experience and SAP HANA knowledge

3)If your answer is to go for ABAP on SAP HANA - Do you suggest to attend course HA400 course that SAP is offering or is there any way that i can learn my self

4)How are job prospects with ABAP on SAP HANA

I have already invested plenty of time and money , i would appreciate if you could give some honest advice

Thanks in advance

    Hi Venkat,

    Adding SAP HANA to your knowledge basket will definitely help you to advance in your Career graph.

    You can definitely learn ABAP on HANA which will help in optimizing any Custom code to leverage the power of HANA. This would be mostly suitable for any HANA projects in Side car approach or for SAP Business Suite on HANA projects. ABAP work for BW on HANA would be very less / minimal. However , you will also need to learn Modelling skills for HANA, which is required for Code push down. You can learn these via HA300.

    You can learn ABAP on HANA from these links or through HA400.

    hi sir ,

    The Best Way for Hana is

    SAP-ABAP --> SAP-BI/BW --> SAP HANA

    i'm not as experienced like you , but I think this is the best way !!!

    Thanks

    regards,
