Migration from one system or database to another is a tricky process. Factors such as business requirements for strategy, IT department skillsets, data formatting issues play a critical role. Migrating to SAP HANA required delicate planning and execution. There is one factor that makes SAP HANA migration challenging is how HANA organizes the data. SAP HANA built as a columnar database. In distinction, traditional RDBMS systems are row-based. SAP HANA is also an in-memory database, meaning it stores data in solid-state memory (RAM) for improved performance. This difference can complicate the migration for clients. Therefore, the specifics of each migration vary based on the unique aspects of each client's SAP landscape and business.
As SAP HANA migration is the process of switching from whatever database you're using with SAP today to SAP HANA. After the migration, SAP HANA will be the central database supporting companies' SAP landscape going forward.
