    Following are the new spheres related to HANA which can be explored as per your interests.

    A)In SAP HANA there are 3 different profiles which you can choose

    1) HANA DB administrator:-

    your job- Installing HANA DB, Storage and backup, role creation and authorization

    2) HANA provisioning and Modelling-

    your job- You can be a part of ERP to HANA data migration projects as well as designing database models for fresh developments and reporting

    3)BW on HANA-

    your job-This will involve using BI tools for HANA reporting

    B)In S4HANA the options you have are-

    1) Functional consultant for Simple finance and simple logistics- MM/PP/SD/FICO/PS/PM

    This might sound lucrative at first. But needs experience to understand minute industry processes and functionality.

    I won't suggest this as experience matters most here. But if you get a good opportunity and have interest then go for it.

    C)Development on HANA-

    1) Fiori app development- If you are interested in coding then you can go for this option as new development will in UI5/ Fiori application based on roles.

    2) XSJS- This a new platform being explored by developers for development on HANA

    3) ABAP on HANA- This is mainly used by ABAP developers for development on HANA .

    As (very basically) S4 HANA is a ERP and HANA a database they proposed 2 kinds of jobs : consultant or DB administrator. Both of them are huge subject with a lot to learn for many different jobs.
