Difference between - ABAP on HANA and ABAP on S/4 HANA is as below-

HANA is only database , while S/4 HANA is erp like SAP ECC.

So, in ABAP on HANA , we write ABAP code by using CDS View, AMDP, SQL Script , which can be run on SAP HANA database, while ERP can be ECC , S/4 HANA. ABAP on hana can not run on Mobile device .

While on S/4 HANA , we write code by using CDS view, AMDP procedure , SAPUI5 etc. for S/4 ERP which is running on HANA database.By using SAPUI5 we can create sap application,that can run on Mobile device.

S/4 HANA will replace SAP ECC in future , and SAPUI5 may be replace ABAP in future.

Hello Shreya,

HANA is an in-memory database and application server that supports modern programming paradigms like Node.js. S/4HANA is the successor of ERP and while using HANA as a database it still runs on an NetWeaver ABAP application server.

Best regards
