I am an ABAP developer. Can I still use my ABAP skills with HANA ?


I am an ABAP developer. Can I still use my ABAP skills with HANA or do I need to use SQL/SQL Script?

ABAP runs in NetWeaver and NetWeaver runs on all big databases. HANA is another database that is added to the list of supported databases of the NetWeaver stack. In the future ABAP will remain a very important language as most SAP solutions are written in ABAP, independent of the underlying database.
However, in order to take full advantage of the in-memory capabilities of HANA in the future much more code will be written and executed directly in the database, e.g. as stored procedures. Those procedures can be called via ABAP statement from the application with the benefit that those procedures are directly executed in the database.The HANA Modeler also has wizard-like visual modeling functionalities that don't require programming skills.
