Why SAP Business One HANA?

SAP HANA, revolutionises all of your critical business reporting. It quickly searches through your SAP Business One data to give you the answers you need right now. Reports that used to take days or hours to run and compile now take only minutes, if not seconds. And even if your small business accumulates huge amounts of data, you can still run highly complex and data-intensive analyses in real time.

The application also includes new embedded analytics functionality that delivers critical and timely information to all those who need it, when and where they need it. You’ll benefit from highly visual and contextual dashboards that are embedded in the familiar SAP Business One screens. For example, when a customer’s name is entered into a sales order screen, a side panel on the screen opens showing the products most often purchased by that customer. This enables your reps to make informed recommendations at the point of sale. Your business transactions can be completed faster than ever before while giving your customers the personal service they deserve.

SAP Business One HANA, includes new and powerful functionality that can accelerate business processes and improve your bottom line. It offers an advanced available-to-promise (ATP) app that provides real-time visibility into current inventory, ordered stock, replenished stock and stock being delivered. You can immediately reserve current stock for future delivery dates and reschedule existing orders to ensure on-time fulfillment of your best customers’ orders and to optimize product movement.

SAP HANA, also delivers an improved cash-flow forecasting app that dramatically improves your cash balance visibility. This is critical for taking cash-flow forecasting to the next level of performance by tracking sales orders, POs, down payments, recurrent postings, and other critical cash-related transactions in its calculations.


SAP HANA, has the functionality to help you transform your business into a real-time company.  You can take advantage of high-speed analysis of all your business information to get the answers you need right away. From analysing product categories to resource planning for batch manufacturing, business transactions are available for analysis the second they complete, and you can deliver relevant data into SAP Business One screens using analytics.

SAP HANA, is also priced attractively and can lower your cost of ownership further by enabling your IT department to be more efficient and by eliminating lengthy data preparation, preaggregation, or tuning tasks required by traditional reporting and analytics tools. Best of all, the application scales as your small business grows, delivering even greater value from your initial investment.

HANA v traditional SQL database

It’s just the technology the solution runs on. HANA employs its own database with the traditional SAP Business One application using a Microsoft SQL database.

However, there are a few differences between the two:

  • SAP HANA has 64-bit processors resulting in faster transactional and analytical information
  • Pre-packed business logic meaning faster software development and deployment with SAP HANA
  • SAP HANA runs on a certified SUSE Linux server

HANA v traditional SAP Business One

In cases where SAP Business One runs on an SQL database the analytics functionality is licensed separately. However, SAP Business One powered by SAP HANA includes all analytic functions without a separate license.

SAP HANA includes new embedded analytics functionality that delivers critical and timely information to all those who need it, when and where they need it. You’ll benefit from highly visual and contextual dashboards that are embedded in the familiar SAP Business One screens. For Your business transactions can be completed faster than ever before while giving your customers the personal service they deserve.
