Full service from abat around SAP HANA

What does HANA technology entail in the context of S/4HANA or SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA??

With SAP HANA, SAP offers a forward-looking platform for carrying out integrated business processes with much more transparency, flexibilitly and agility –  without system breaks and in real time. In a new in-memory appliance consisting of hardware and software, data is stored on the much faster RAM instead of on a hard disk.

HANA technology can be deployed both in the cloud and on-premise. Your existing ERP processes can be executed more efficiently on a HANA database. The HANA database is a prerequisite for the use of SAP S/4HANA and is required at the latest when switching to S/4HANA (brownfield/greenfield).

What does the use of HANA technology offer you in the context of S/4HANA or SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA?

As the amount of complex data (Big Data) is ever increasing, flexible,  secure and user-friendly processes are needed to process and evaluate company data.

With the deployment of S/4HANA, the analytical information system (OLAP) and online transaction processing (OLTP) have been merged.

This means that an additional BW system can become obsolete, as evaluations can access the data source directly in real time, creating new ways of making decisions. There is also the possibility of optimizing performance-intensive processes such as batch runs, material requirements planning (MRP), etc., in order to be able to respond even better to current market changes.

How can abat help you get started with HANA technology?

abat supports you with individual consulting in order to check the prerequisites for the introduction and potentials in your in-house process flows. In addition, abat accompanies you from the beginning with the introduction strategy and implementation of the optimal solution for you, up to the support and further development of your processes.

I like working at abat because there is a very pleasant, appreciative working atmosphere here with a lot of freedom. There is a lot of trust, so you also have the freedom to try out something new - but if it doesn't work out, there is also the necessary support. That's how I've learned so much! In addition, if you have problems while working in the home office, you can often quickly find colleagues who are happy to help you out via teams.

WORK-LIFE-BALANCE is very important at abat. Thanks to flexible working hours and a great team, you can combine work and university very well.


Student apprentice

Despite the professionalism that abat AG displays to the outside world, it became clear to me during my first few days that this does not have to be a contradiction to fun, friendliness and relaxed interaction among colleagues. The flat hierarchies ensured that I felt comfortable as an intern and like a full member of the team right from the start.
