  • Syscompare – a tool for comparing repos across HANA instances

    inSh A couple of weeks ago I was moving code from 1 hana instance to another trying to keep them in sync. However, I thought there might be a better alternative for comparing the contents of the repos across my systems to ensure that the files matched. After doing some digging and not finding a […]

  • Building a Startup – The “big picture” on your road to success

    This is part 3 of my blog series called: “Building a start-up in the SAP HANA space“. What is considered a “Startup”? “A startup is a company working to solve a problem where the solution is not obvious and success is not guaranteed” Neil Blumenthal, cofounder and co-CEO of Warby Parker Startup or Side Project?

  • Building a Startup – Your value proposition and elevator pitch

    This is part 2 of my blog series called: “Building a start-up in the SAP HANA space“. Over the past 15 years, I have developed a variety of applications. Web, mobile, some in the startup realm, some just as side projects, customers projects, partner applications, and the list goes on. Although if there is 1 […]

  • Building a Start-up in the SAP HANA space

    I have some fond memories of a television series from the BBC called “A Car is Born” a 15 episode show where the presenter, Mark Evans painstakingly builds a AC Cobra replica. The show highlighted his experiences, trials and tribulations of building something from the ground up. At TechEd 2014 in Las Vegas I gave […]

  • metric² for iPhone and SAP HANA

      metric² for iPhone lets you monitor your SAP HANA instances from your phone showing you alerts, core resources and important metrics. Wherever you are. As mentioned in my GitHANA article, developing on the metric² open source project has really provided some interesting use cases for me around SAP HANA. While it might not be […]

  • Git <> HANA – A free, open-source Github client for SAP HANA

    Over the last few months, working on the metric² open source project, I have been frequently updating the GitHub repo.

  • Hacking SAP HANA Web Sockets

    Disclaimer: This is not a production or documented feature – its also more of a hijack than a hack    I have been hoping for the inclusion of Websocket support on the HANA DB platform for a while now, and I was a little disappointed it was not packaged in the SPS08 release. My goal […]

  • metric² v2.0 release

    After releasing metric² at TechEd Las Vegas last year it has had well over a hundred downloads, and has a couple loyal followers always offering advice and feedback (which I am truly thankful for). Last week we released version 2.0 of the free and open source app and subsequently put it onto GitHub under the […]

  • XSOData Service Browser

    Introduction I was recently working on developing a couple of XSOData services for Metric² when I realized that it would be pretty helpful to have a way to develop, test, explore services and queries. I wrote a similar tool for SAP Netweaver Gateway and the iPad a couple years ago, and decided to model it […]

  • Node.js dashboard for SAP HANA

    This is what we will be developing in this blog … Over the past few years Node.js has really caught my attention. The simplicity of Javascript with server side processing, Non-blocking-IO, Event Driven, and simple integration always intrigued me as a great combination for enterprise applications. (Somehow it sounds similar to HANA XS Engine) A […]
