ZaranTech SAP HANA Training Roadmap

How are we Different from other Training Institutes?

Role-specific training instead of Product-based training – We are the leaders in providing **Role-Specific training and e-learning solutions for individuals and corporations. Our curriculum are based on real-time job functions as opposed to being product-based. Real-time scenarios and troubleshooting techniques shown in class.
(**Role based training – Here our trainers share their real-time implementation experience in the class. The trainer will work with participant on several Case Studies based on a actual projects. This gives the participant an understanding of how things are accomplished in real-time environment. The idea is to get the participant familiar of the process, real-time.)

Longer Course Durations – We provide students with more detailed training with Assignments based on the real-time scenarios as well as case studies so that the students take away relevant experience in their respective platform.

We offer Training Blogs using Google Site – The Training Blogs are a common platform for both the trainer as well as the trainees to interact with, discuss queries with the trainers, upload assignments and referring assignments. Training Blogs helps the student to attend the sessions anywhere, anytime, using laptop, desktop or tabs/palmtops.

We provide study materials using Google Drive –We provide access to a Repository of materials for training using Google Drive Cloud. The students are given access to their respective modules using Google Drive for which they have access for lifetime and can be accessed anywhere any time.

For our SAP Trainings –We offer the longest duration of Courses in SAP as compared to any other training institute out there. Our SAP training programs are very detailed. Integration with other SAP modules is covered as a part of our training programs.

Never miss a session – We video record every online training sessions and post the Video recording on the training Blog after the session. So if a students misses a Live Online session, the Video is always available on the Blog. Other students can always go back to these video recordings for review purpose or just to go over.

Highly Qualified and Well Experienced Trainers – Our Trainers are highly qualified and are well experienced in their respective domains. We have trainers from USA, Canada, Australia, Singapore and many other countries.

Case Studies and Assignments Based on Real Scenarios – The Case Studies and Assignments assigned to the students are based on real-time scenarios out the Trainers Past Projects they were involved in.

Certification Assistance – During and at the end of training, the Sr. trainer will provide Certification questions and answers to help you clear the Certification (if required). They will guide each student the required Certification program as well as they themselves are Certified. Every student also receives a ZaranTech Training Completion Certificate as well.

How to be a certified SAP HANA certification?

Certification for SAP HANA can be attained by the aspirant in the following steps:
Step 1: Once training is over, Registration must be done for C_HANAIMP141 exam.
Step 2: Complete the exam and hence you shall be certified.

What are the requirements for the certification?

Degree is desired along with the basic understanding of the concepts and functionalities of SAP shall be an advantage. Functional experience in marketing management is also desired for the candidate.

What are the pattern for the exam and the duration for the test?

The examination would consist of 80 multiple choice questions, the duration for the examination is 180 minutes and the passing score is 60%.

Why is SAP HANA fast?

SAP HANA is fast for the following reasons:
a) HANA stores information in electronic memory as compared to regular RDBMS technologies that store information on hard disks.
b) Besides, most SAP systems have the database on one system and a calculation engine on another,and they pass information between them. With HANA, all this happens within the same machine.

Can you have row store tables in SAP HANA?

HANA can have column or row stores; there is no technical limitation. If you have row-store table in HANA, you cannot create any column views(Modelling views) on top of thoserow store tables. Typically, Metadata or system tables or rarely accessed data is stored in a row-store format.

How do you decide if the table should be row or column store in your project?

If you want to populate the tables with huge amounts of data that should be aggregated and analyzed fast and benefited from compression mechanisms, then column store is a better option. If you want to report on all the columns, then row store is more suitable.Simple rule of thumb in HANA is ‘use a column table unless specified.

Which are the two relational engines in In-Memory Computing Engine (IMCE)?

The two relational engines in IMCE are:
a) Row store
b) Column store
Both row store and column store are in-memory databases.

What is the Difference between Live training and Video training?

Which technologies did SAP HANA evolve from?
SAP HANA evolved by combining earlier developed technologies, BW Accelerator and Max DB with its inmemory

Define SAP HANA?

SAP HANA is a S/w and H/w solution by SAP, which is an In-Memory platform, that combines database, data processing, and application platform capabilities in-memory. The platform provides libraries for predictive, planning, text processing, spatial, and business analytic.
