Classic SAP consultant in HANA world

Post by akrason » Wed Oct 26, 2016 6:42 am


Maybe this is the right place to ask questions about HANA buzz?

After nearly 20 years of various SAP exposure, including periods of intensive hands-on on several modules but Abap, I wander what will HANA sooner or later arrving in a more massive manner into the market mean to me:

1. Will ECC exist along HANA or be rather replaced by the latter?
2. Does moving from ECC to HANA means for an existing user company to merely migrate or to merge a couple of tables?
3. Does it mean for existing ECC consultants that their experience cannot be directly "translated" into HANA project tasks?
4. Is ECC experience a pre-requisite condition to become an efficient HANA consultant? Functional or rather technical?
And so on...

I have seen a couple of HANA and FIORI Youtube videos but none of them brings up answers to, in my opinion, some legitimate questions of consulting community. Has anyone here a personal view of this question, hopefully justified by actual experience?
