How ISVs/partners can get their solutions certified for SAP HANA


Many partner and ISV solutions touch SAP HANA via a variety of integrations and deployments. The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) offers a number of certifications and services to enable software solution partners, ISVs and OEM partners who have adopted SAP HANA.

If you could not find the appropriate certification scenario listed below for your solution, please contact SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) for advice.

1. SAP HANA Platform


ISVs and partners 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 traditional client based scenarios and web-based application. SAP ICC offers certifications for such applications running on SAP HANA.

2. Integrate to SAP Business Suite Powered by SAP HANA

With “SAP Business Suite Powered by SAP HANA”, SAP is the first company to offer customers the option to run both analytics and business transactions in one single in-memory based

In general all application integration scenarios perform in the same way, regardless whether the
underlying database of the SAP Business Suite is SAP HANA or any other supported database. So by default, all certifications for integrations are valid for all supported databases, including SAP HANA. After July 2015, SAP ICC will no longer specifically test API-level integrations for “on SAP HANA” compatibility.

However, if an ABAP Add-On is part of the SAP solution, then a certification specifically for “SAP
Business Suite powered by SAP HANA” is necessary. Some table types have been
migrated, and therefore the Add-On might need to be adjusted.

3. Integrate to SAP Business Warehouse Powered by SAP HANA


SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (BW) powered by SAP HANA allows Partners/ISVs to optimize and improve the performance of data load processes, running reports, etc. when developing and deliver Content (InfoCubes, DSOs, InfoObjects, etc.) to SAP customers.

4. SAP HANA HW Enterprise Storage


SAP HANA Hardware Certification helps SAP customers to reduce hardware and operations cost, mitigate risk, optimize time-to-value and gain additional flexibility in hardware vendor selection to run SAP HANA.

Hardware Manufacturers can now get their enterprise storage solutions certified.

5. SAP HANA Tools


Third party backup tools that use Backint for SAP HANA can now be certified by SAP.

6. Third party BI and ETL tools  |  Third party tools support for SAP HANA client


Third party BI vendors who are interested to certify their full BI client tools connecting to SAP HANA through ODBC with SQL-based.


Third party BI vendors who are interested to certify their full BI client tools connecting to SAP HANA through ODBO with MDX-based.

HANA-ETL HANA ETL certification is SAP ICC’s offering to third party ISV’s/partners who are interested to certify their Data Replication tools (ETL) using SAP HANA through ODBC/JDBC interfaces. HANA- ETL certification test plan outlines the technical criteria and the requirements of such third  party tool to replicate SAP and non-SAP data into SAP HANA database. The objective is to integrate between SAP HANA DB with third party partner ETL tools and certify the integration by SAP  once the minimum certification requirements are met by the partner ETL too.
