Why SAP HANA Cockpit is necessary?


can somebody tell me why I need SAP HANA Cockpit for SAP HANAs 2.0 ?

In the SAP HANA Administrations Guide I found the note:


Full administration of SAP HANA 2.0 is not possible with the SAP HANA studio. Certain tasks require the SAP HANA Cockpit."

Which Tasks can not be done with Studio or commandline?

Thanks for your help!

    There exists no dedicated public overview of functions only available in SAP HANA Cockpit. But mainly all new features are developed for SAP HANA Cockpit. The reason is that SAP HANA Cockpit is the strategic tool for the future. SAP HANA Studio was declared as deprecated with SAP HANA 2.0 SPS01 release (see note 2465027) and will be not available anymore for the next major HANA release.

    Hello Günther,

    While I am not certain which functionality is currently only available in the SAP HANA Cockpit, I know that it is the strategic solution and that the SAP HANA Studio will eventually be retired. I also noticed that some functionality seems to work smoother from the Cockpit than from the Studio. Therefore I would like to recommend that you start to become familiar with the Cockpit.

    Best regards
