SAP HANA Halloween nightmares
Here you are, it’s that time of the year. You have this really big heavy thing sitting in front of you. A pumpkin.
You know you can turn it into something awesome but at the moment it just sits there looking weird in its bright orangeness.
Where do you start?
Make a lid by cutting a hole in the top.
OMG - you immediately regret your decision. Inside is just a mess!! It is just a load of stringy stuff, seeds and slimy goop.
Scrape it all out.
Hmm, this thing is way lighter now.
I can cut it into chunks without fear of hacking off fingers. Mmmmh, that’ll be delicious roasted, made into soup or possibly a jack ‘o lantern (and then turned into soup or pie, after all let’s not waste pumpkin!).
But wait - all that goop you scraped out…. it is still useful. Those seeds, dry them and sprinkle on your salads, or plant them and next year you have more pumpkins. You can point your analytics engine at it and transform into some of that spooky Big Data you’ve heard about!
You’ve got the analogy by now, right?
HANA is going to be great, but make your life easier. Archive.
It will give you a lighter system, more insight and save you losing fingers (and money!).
