Our ECC on HANA database in encrypted (HANA data volume encryption).

We are planning to integrate our HANA DB with other database.

Do we face any problem or difficulties during 3rd party integration to HANA ?

Since you haven't told us what "3rd party integration" you use and how that works the answer is: likely not.

HANA encryption works on the data volumes and only HANA processes ever access these volumes.

If any other process tries and access the volumes that's - encrypted or not - a massive failure in the approach.

So, whatever your integration looks like, SAP HANA provides the data in the way you set it up for the integration, but definitively independent from the encryption of the data volumes.
