HANA experience for manufacturing consultant


From ME 15.1 and MII 15.0 support HANA. Can you please help me with understanding;

1. Does a ME/MII consultant need to learn HANA? Would it help to build my career in SAP Manufacturing ?

2. Specifically now [& in future release] where and how can a me/mii consultant apply HANA knowledge?

3. Are there any specific documents, references which will explain more about it?

4. Specifically which parts of HANA would be needed in me/mii/PCo?

Any help, pointers would be highly appreciated.

    In the context of SAP ME, a consultant can live without HANA knowledge, but sometimes it might be good to look into the database to check the content of SAP ME tables. For this you will definitely need some knowledge on how to logon to the database and select the needed data. So, I would say this is a required minimum.

    • Hi Romano,

      Of course, HANA is not identical to e.g. Oracle. For HANA, SAP ME uses OpenSQL that caused a need to adjust some queries, even though many of them look the same as in Oracle.

      Also, database structure has been changed a bit, I guess.

      So, you might need to do similar changes in your projects.
