Your questions answered

What is SAP HANA?

SAP HANA (High-Performance Analytic Appliance) is a relational database system designed to manage data through enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. It runs on Linux, and can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud. SAP HANA stores data in-memory (on RAM instead of hard drives). Companies can access their data 3,600 times faster, and accelerate their analytics capacity. This means they get greater efficiency and higher growth. Other benefits of SAP HANA:

  • Processing and storage of high volumes of data, delivering real-time analysis.
  • Simplified database management with all data consolidated in one place.
  • No need to maintain log databases.
  • The ability to integrate with machine learning and artificial intelligence applications.
  • A private, secure platform that meets compliance and regulatory requirements.

What is the difference between SAP and SAP HANA?

SAP (System Analysis Program Development) is a leading provider of enterprise resource planning (ERP) packages and other business software. Founded in Germany in 1972, SAP is an international company with more than 100,000 employees. SAP software centralises data, so its full potential can be leveraged by multiple business units. It also enables companies to perform operations more efficiently. SAP HANA is a relational database system created by SAP. It quickly processes the data within ERP software. Today, all SAP applications are developed and optimised for SAP HANA.


With the SAP HANA TDI (Tailored Datacenter Integration) approach, users can deploy a SAP HANA database across existing datacentre infrastructures. This way, they can control every stage of its setup and maintenance. It offers more flexibility than the legacy ‘appliance’ approach, where SAP HANA is delivered as a pre-configured solution with dedicated hardware. To facilitate integration, TDI also enables users to leverage current hardware. This reduces the cost and complexity of deploying SAP HANA as a result.


SAP HANA is a database platform designed to support ERP software. With its high data processing speed, users can extract more value from the data contained in their ERP. ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software supports day-to-day operations such as accounting, project management, human resources, marketing, and customer relationship management. It helps companies manage and streamline processes, while facilitating cross-team collaboration. Many solutions also offer automation. ERP software includes SAP ERP, Oracle NetSuite, Microsoft Dynamics, and Sage.
