SAP Discovery System V5, with HANA

Hi Everyone,

While we wait for our HANA box to arrive, I wanted to get started on developing installation, implementation, configuration and support plans. Three questions;

1) We have looked at the SAP Discovery System V5 (as described in the BI210 SAP HANA: Technical End-to-End-Scenario session at Teched Madrid. Is this available, and if so where do I get it from ?

2) The project manager insists that we can install HANA on any appropriately sized SLES 11 system, but my reading of BI210 SAP HANA: Technical End-to-End-Scenario is that we can virtualise all components except HANA - In other words, I believe we still need a physical HANA appliance to complete the scenario. Is this correct ?

3) Regardless of the HANA appliance, does anyone have (polite) suggestions about what we can do while we wait for the HANA appliance to turn up ?

thanks

    Hello,

    I will start from the end...

    3) Regardless of the HANA appliance, does anyone have (polite) suggestions about what we can do while we wait for the HANA appliance to turn up ?

    Well you can...:

    1.) get familiar with HANA using SAP HANA Sandbox:

    http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/in-memory?rid=/webcontent/uuid/c022341c-5ed1-2e10-0b98-9b6a3314dd25

    2.) prepare architecture for your scenario (what type of replication will be used, are you going to use BOBJ for reporting or something else, etc.)

    3.) assemble the team that will do the installation (you will need linux expert, basis guy, modellers, SQL specialist, data provisioning expert, ...)

    4.) educate the team and ask them to study documentation

    5.) install all non-HANA components (BOBJ, BO Data Services, SLT system, etc.)

    6.) if all is done and you are still waiting you can try to perform some modeling in SAP HANA Sandbox and then export it and later reuse

    ...there are probably more things you can do while waiting but this is what I just recalled that could be done

      Dear Raj,

      Well documented, but unify installer is very easy and removes manual installation headache; SUM and hostagent removes update headache.

      BW on HANA also installs 😊 but you need at least XX GB. 😊

      Thanks & Regards,

      Rao

    how about lining up test content to load once your HANA instance is up and running?
