    This is really cool. Mr Klein did really a great job answering all critical questions eloquently. Thank you.

  2. After weeks of consuming information on HANA, I finally found this, which is the most credible source to date.

    This video was very clear, many thanks. I would like to leave you a question – does HANA mean that we may return to use LIS/COPA in R/3 and use BO as frontend to provide the information/queries instead of BW? Maybe SAP improves LIS and COPA inside R/3, and with HANA they may possibly be used now originally where they are generated, as real time data. They have some role control, metadata transformation and so on, but they are incipient and poor as data transformation / analysis tool. On the other hand, use R/3 as data base would mean no more time for loads, or for reconciliation, or for extra servers, among other opportunities. I am an SD and BW consultant, and I´m trying to look all sides with HANA.

    Carsten from SAP here. You asked, “…does HANA mean that we may return to use LIS/COPA in R/3 and use BO as frontend to provide the information/queries instead of BW?”

    The answer is yes. HANA can be an alternative / complement to traditional BW based reporting – in itself with BOBJ on top or going forward as underlying database for BW

    You also said, “Maybe SAP improves LIS and COPA inside R/3…”

    Again, the answer is yes, for example, allocation performance will improve as the allocation read portion based on HANA will be accelerated

    Hope that helps.
