Gain an understanding of the key differences between SAP HANA and traditional relational database systems in an SAP BusinessObjects environment, and learn how BusinessObjects has been optimized for SAP HANA.
SAP HANA is a multipurpose, data-source-agonistic, in-memory appliance that combines SAP software components optimized on hardware provided by SAP partners. SAP HANA provides capabilities for real-time operational analytics and use as an Agile data mart.
SAP BusinessObjects traditionally relies on the semantic layer for optimized data access with SAP HANA.
With BusinessObjects 4.0, the semantic layer and the BI tools are optimized to connect to SAP HANA natively to get data. Each visualization within the BI portfolio has an optimized way of accessing data from SAP HANA.
