The purpose of this blog is a one stop shop list to all the important information resources of SAP HANA Cloud. It is to help the development and data management practitioners to quickly get up to speed on what it is, what’s the latest, and share best practices from other practitioners. Please bookmark this blog as I plan to update it when new information is available.


Since its inception in March 2020, SAP HANA Cloud is helping customers as an integrated platform supporting all types of data and workloads. Key use cases are:

    • As a gateway to all the enterprise data. Connect any data anywhere and execute multiple workloads on a single copy of data.
    • Real-time HTAP applications (native HANA). Combining analytical and transactional workloads
    • SAP application extensions and side car scenarios, allowing to create hybrid scenarios
    • Storage and processing of multiple different kinds of data (spatial, graph, documents, etc.)
    • Built-in ML with Predictive Analytics Libraries (PAL) and Automated Predictive Libraries (APL)
    • Peta byte scale analytics on structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data
    • Ability to migrate on premise SAP IQ customers to the SAP HANA Cloud Data Lake with the option to upsell the HANA service.
