SAP Hana in a non-SAP environnement
I've noticed that SAP Hana needed an SAP environnement to run. But i've noticed too that applications can be developed by Eclipse which is not an SAP feature. Can you please tell me how far you need a full SAP environnement to run SAP Hana properly?
Is that possible to connect directly a non-SAP application to Hana?
Is a connector software (like Informatica) required?
ps- When I think about SAP applications, I think also about SAP partners.
