Business Challenge

Our customer has multiple DWH and BI solutions deployed on SAP HANA DB. Due to the large size of the company, and the long-term utilization of SAP HANA DB, different teams of software engineers developed the solutions at separate times. This deteriorated the system’s consistency and generated a wide range of dependencies between various reports and ETL processes. Consequently, this hampered the overall SAP HANA DB performance and resulted in:

  • Prolonged period of report generation;
  • Substantial financial losses due to redundant labor efforts;
  • Inefficient use of hardware and IT infrastructure;
  • Aggravated service quality that significantly decreased end-user satisfaction


As a long-term full value chain vendor of SAP services and solutions, Infopulse offered to conduct a SAP HANA DB performance audit, a special service targeted to address the challenges related to SAP HANA DB productivity. During the performance audit, our experts:

  • Analyzed the most resource-intensive SAP HANA DB objects;
  • Precisely identified the code misalignments that hamper the DB performance;
  • Resolved all of the DB issues in accordance with the best practices;
  • Conducted an additional in-depth analysis of the general SAP HANA DB configuration for compliance with SAP recommendations.
