SAP HANA integration with Cognos TM1


I want to check if data from Hana can be exported to Cognos TM1. As TM1 has more analysis functions for actual and Plan fianced data ( as BW SEM).

Can anyone please advise on pros and cons of the below scenarios or is it possible to integrate in below method.

1) Can Cognos TM1 can read directly integrate with HANA and load the data. If yes pls give an outline on steps

2) Can TurboIntegrator ( similar to BODS ) can read data from Hana and then load to Cognos TM1. TurboIntegrator and Cognos setup is already in place only need to check if TurboIntegrator can read the views in Hana.

3)Can BODS pull data from Hana into data staging and then load to Cognos. Can BODS load data using turboIntegator into Cognos or load data from BODS into Cognos TM1 directly.

4) Any pros and con on loading data from HANA to Cognos TM1 using ODBC Concept.

I know that data export from hana is not and ideal methodology but business requies it and we have to load data from HANA to Cognos TM1 not from ECC to Cognos .

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Isn't TM1 in(PC)memory? the main HANA's benefit is that aggregations happen on the database server and only the results are returned to a BI (for me it's Excel) client. why would you like to copy detail into TM1 (not sure if it's doable) and not create a bunch of HANA calculation views and expose them through ODBO into the spreadsheet pivot table?

    i don't think TM1 folks care that much about HANA, but then again spreadsheet users don't necessarily care about TM1.

    just an architectural thought or two...
