HANA Procedure performer XS JS Project

In this post I want to share the way how to call HANA Procedures via XS JS. This is not a how-to guidepost, I want to share the end functionality that we use in our work. This approach might be very convenient in integration projects when the data extraction rules can be changed during the UAT, so you won’t need to change anything in your integration solutions you just need to apply this requirements in your procedures and change will be committed on the fly.

How to Expose a HANA Table via oData

With IOT gaining traction and SAP’s HANA DB as well as applications becoming warehousing tools, we’re seeing a greater need to integrate IOT data into HANA. One method of achieving this is by allowing sensor data from IOT devices to publish or post data directly into HANA database tables. Once data is in HANA, additional data modelling can be carried out and formatted data exposed for end user consumption to front end tools such as SAP Analytics Cloud or Business Objects.

Myth and truth about cluster & pool tables on HANA

In general nearly everyone knows that with new installations based on NW750 there are no cluster tables anymore. When you migrate to HANA one prerequisite is that all cluster and pool tables have to be declustered/depooled.

But is this really correct? In my last projects there were a lot of issues regarding cluster and pool tables. SUM and SWPM have not worked as expected and so some data was not migrated / depooled / declustered automatically in cause of bugs.
