Third-Party Application on SAP HANA Certification (HANA-APP)

Partners and ISVs can now take advantage of the power of the SAP HANA Platform to develop new applications with advanced reporting analysis, and planning in a real time. SAP HANA-based applications can be distinguished into these two broad categories:

  • Traditional client-based scenarios, where an external application accesses the SAP HANA data model (tables, analytic views, etc.) via client interfaces such as ODBC and JDBC, and only uses SQL and native SQLScript procedures.

  • Web-based application that take full advantage of the SAP HANA Extended Application Services. In this scenario, clients access SAP HANA data using standard OData or XML for Analysis (XMLA) interfaces, or directly use a Web-based GUI that was developed using SAP UI5 toolkit, and that uses custom-developed server-side JavaScript, as well as native SQLScript procedures.

SAP offers certification for such applications running on HANA, details are described below. ISVs and partners who have developed HANA-based applications should contact the SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) to sign up.
