Need Help - I want to learn HANA but not for development



Please treat me a novice here. I have limited knowledge.

I am student of Master of Business in ERP Systems at Victoria University, Melbourne. I am studying it part time.

I also work full time as IT Systems Administrator. I completed a unit Business Intelligence Systems and from there I generated an interest for BW/BI. In general, what I really liked about it is creating infocubes and then exposing those cubes to BI applications.

Later, I was introduced to HANA and I just loved the concept and technology. I wanted to check if I can use HANA to load data from xls or csv and then use BI tools to connect to it. In that attempt, I have configured HANA instance in AWS and started to browse through different articles, guides and videos. Unfortunately, I am finding it hard where to start.

Can someone direct me to right direction?

As an IT guy I don't want to develop applications. I want to learn data modelling (if I am correct for this definition) and administration part of HANA. I also do want to learn few BI applications such as Visual Intelligence, Dashboard Design and Web Intelligence.

Please help me to achieve my goals.
