A few years ago (time flies!) I wrote an article about connecting SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0 client tools to SAP HANA. Since then there were many requests about updating it with information on the latest versions of the SAP BI solutions and SAP HANA. Finally, instead of creating a huge document, looking like a patchwork of laundry lists, I decided to write a series of short documents on the subject which will appear on the SCN.

The goals of the series are:

  • -Show 'how-to' connect the SAP analytics tools to SAP HANA --> makes life easier for you
  • Provide hints and best practices for a proficient BI set up on HANA --> helps you take the best options
  • Explain 'why' some architectural choices were made by SAP -> makes you more comfortable with the solution

All articles will appear in the list below with their link on SCN. Articles with no link are planned but not avaialble yet (it's a teaser  ).

The articles will specify the version of BI and of HANA they are referring to but overall we are starting from SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.1 SP6, Design Studio 1.5, Analysis Office 2.0, SAP Lumira 1.27 and SAP HANA SPS9.

Thanks for reading!
