SQLScript (SQL Extensions for HDB) available pre-HANA?


Dean SAP HANA Experts,

I'm new to SAP HANA, and I have a question regarding how to best prepare for a HANA implementation in the future.

I currently have numerous SQL queries to fulfill adhoc end-user reporting requirments. These SQL statements access the underlying ECC transparent tables directly. Prior to implementing HANA (HDB), to what degree can I convert these queries to use SQLScript (the extensions for HDB)? My motiviation is to ready these SQL queries early so that when HDB is implemented, the queries do not require re-work.

Thoughts? What is possible? What is not possible?
