SAP BWA Versus SAP HANA Differences

What is the difference between SAP Business Warehouse Accelerator (SAP BWA) & SAP HANA?

SAP BW Accelerator (SAP BWA) is an in-memory accelerator for BW. HANA is a full featured in-memory platform. BWA was specifically designed accelerate BW queries by reducing the data acquisition time
by persisting copies of the InfoCube data in-memory. SAP BWA is focused on improving the query performance of SAP NetWeaver BW. SAP BWA can be used today with any SAP BW 7.0 release and above.

SAP HANA is an in-memory appliance and platform for delivering high-performance analytics and applications. As such, it includes a full-featured in-memory database. Data can be loaded into SAP HANA from SAP & non-SAP data sources and viewed using SAP BusinessObjects front end tools. In the near future, SAP HANA will also act as an In-memory database that will power SAP NetWeaver BW 7.3 and above. In this way it will be able to dramatically improve the overall performance of SAP NetWeaver BW by combining the value proposition of both the database & BWA into a single platform..
