SAP HANA is an in-memory database that developers can use for real-time analytics. At its core, the database can help businesses craft personalized solutions for running apps across a variety of industries. It can compile and display data without any lag time.
SAP HANA workshop exercises provide one way that prospective SAP HANA students can learn more about the platform or prepare for their certification exams. These exercises may also help teachers craft questions or coursework. Our SAP HANA workshop exercises guide will detail some common questions you may encounter and their solutions. We chose to list questions that apply to basic SAP HANA processes and specialized fields.

2. You will find metadata within the structures. Import this metadata to the BODS.
3. Configure the import server.
4. Bring the metadata to the HANA system itself.
5. Craft a second data store between HANA and BODS.
6. Create a new project.
7. Define the job for the project.
8. Define the work flow.
9. Determine the flow of data.
10. Add any necessary objects to the data flow points.
11. Finish the job.
12. Verify the job within HANA.
