Hi Friends,

I am an ABAP Developer and I have just completed my Training in HANA and I am working on my Certification. Is it good for me to have knoweldge with BW/BI and BO. With BO I am now done my training with the reporting on HANA. Kindly input your thoughts and suggestions.  How should I take my route to be an efficient person in HANA. I have never worked hands on with BW/BI. So need thoughts from experts. Is ter any good book to self start on BW/BI ? If yes then do provide me the details

Hello Radhika,
First of all  you are on the correct track.
ABAP composed with HANA is already so much to learn and work with. SAP BW will be required when in project where SAP BW on HANA is required. Even for BO on HANA is required.
Generally the correct route is considered as
BI/BW=> BO=> HANA

But as you have covered ABAP and finished off learning HANA, the route has been a changed one for you. But still learning BI/BW will be a good approach even though may not be so necessary at the moment. I believe you have not worked with HANA either as you mentioned not with BI/BW yet.
So correct approach can be  get started with HANA developments and spend enough time and capture the concepts. As ABAP is there with you, developments in HANA will somewhat will be easy to master. So as the journey progresses you can add  flavours of SAP BW alongside your working on various projects.

So far as BW materials are concerned,  I have all my certification materials which  I have no issues to share with you. Click my name and click follow tab here in SCN so as to send direct messages. We may share contact Ids to make it possible.

Hope the piece of information helps !!

Hi Radhika,

as you have told that, you are a abaper, and you are preparing for Certification in HANA, good to know this and my best wishes are with you.

As learning HANA with abap background will be really helphul to you, as you know that or might have heard that people first learn BW/BI then approches for BO then they took a foot ahead into HANA, but its not a mandatory stuffs, actually by learning BW/BI and BO you will get the techniques of creating report and its related procedures and after that if you will work on HANA then it will become easy to grasp it.

But as i told you, its not mandatory to go with the general path, if you have taken decision to go ahead with HANA , just prepare it so that you will get familiar with it, then i don't think you will find it more difficult to implement.
