Launched in 2010, SAP HANA is a modern and mature solution used by tens of thousands of customers around the world. But SAP HANA is much more than a database. In addition to acting as a database server, storing and retrieving data requested by applications, SAP HANA offers advanced search, analytics, and data integration capabilities for all types of data - structured and unstructured. It also functions as an application server and helps companies build smart, insight-driven applications based on real-time data, in-memory computing, and machine learning technology. These capabilities are available both in the cloud, and on-premise.

Interested in finding out even more? Explore our SAP HANA topic page and share your stories, connect with experts and keep in sync with what's happening in the SAP HANA world! You have a question related to SAP HANA topics and products? Drop it here and our community will help you out! Why am I so confident in that? Well, because of our Featured Contributors! I know what you're asking: What exactly does it mean? & How can I be listed there?

We want to highlight and recognize members who are active in SAP Community, take engagement to the next level, don't miss out on questions to help and share their knowledge and expertise. We think it is important that they are made visible to honour their participation and make their content more available to you.
That's why a huge THANK YOU goes to our current Featured Contributors for the overall topic of SAP HANA. We appreciate your dedicated time and efforts!






Those awesome people are not set in stone as our Featured Contributor. We do update the list on the topic page on a bi-weekly basis, meaning that you can surely be listed there too! First steps are not always easy, but once you are in the flow, it often just flows. There is so much to explore that you might already gained some knowledge about, but want to take a deep dive (I am sure there is always more to learn and explore). Our SAP managed tag list gives you a good overview of all the topics you can explore about! If you click on the corresponding tags, you will either get to the questions that have been asked with the tag so far or to the blog posts that have been published in that tag area.

There is surely also more ways to participate, that we - believe me - see and appreciate. Have you heard about our Random Day Surprise? It values our engagers, because for any kind of participation/activity you will receive a badge on a random day that is kept secret until that day (otherwise it wouldn't be a surprise, right?) One such activity can be that you make your opinion count, because who doesn't want to have a say? Have you read a question or an answer where you thought, oh yes, that's a good one? Why not hitting the little triangle right next to it and give some credit to the question author and/or answerer?

Why else should you vote? SAP Community is a place to collaborate and learn from each other. Your vote shows other community members that the given answer was of value to others and it makes it more reliable. In case you haven't voted before, another benefit is surely that you get the chance to further decorate your profile with a badge:

I Voted

You can also try to achieve the next level of voting and go for our Voter badge! Check out our  Missions and Badges page to see all badges that are available to you!

This is the second part of out blog series that will continue on a weekly basis. Check out last week's Featured Contributors on Customer Experience! Coming up next week: SAP Integration Suite!
