CCH Tagetik on SAP HANA

Combine the best of both worlds by using the integration of CCH Tagetik on the SAP HANA Database.

While integrating systems with CCH Tagetik has always been effortless, having your CCH Tagetik processes directly working on the SAP HANA Database technology can be considered as the next step. CCH Tagetik running on Hana is co-created with SAP and is therefore a native integrated solution. The solution leverages the power of SAP HANA and the intelligence of CCH Tagetik, speeding up the CPM processing times and accelerating in-depth analysis and insights.

At a quick glance, CCH Tagetik on SAP HANA offers your organization the following:

  • Finance owned
  • Compliant with SAP-only policies
  • Native integration
  • High performance calculations
  • Real-time analysis
  • Mitigate synchronization risks
  • Big Data handling

CCH Tagetik on SAP HANA enables

The idea behind SAP HANA is that the technology was created from the ground up, keeping in mind the new data processing architectures. Contrarily to traditional technologies, the very foundation of the database supports big data analyses and modifications. Which results in performance improvements. CCH Tagetik uses this technology by connecting with SAP in an early stage of the SAP HANA development, leveraging the design ideas to improve data processing runtimes.

Choosing your database

Traditionally the technology of CCH Tagetik leverages SQL databases. The difference between SAP HANA and SQL mainly comes down to the manner in which data is read and stored.

The way data is read can be summarized as in-memory versus disk, respectively. What this exactly comes down to is summarized in the table below:

And there is also a major difference between them in terms of data storage. SQL uses row-based storage: data is arranged horizontally. SAP HANA, by contrast, uses columnar storage, which can help you access your data faster. In the right circumstances, SAP HANA can really improve performance.
