SHAF - What is SAP HANA Analytics Foundation

The SAP HANA Analytics Foundation or SHAF, provides views in SAP HANA for reporting on data only persisted in the SAP HANA table format. In the side car scenario, SHAF will use the tables which have been replicated from the SAP Business Suite. For the SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA integrated scenario, real-time reporting will be possible without any data transfer from the original tables in the Suite.

Based on these views, Business users can easily analyze the data of the SAP Business Suite applications. SHAF will address the needs of operational reporting in real-time and will be the foundation of future Suite Analytics. SHAF will not replace the Enterprise Data Warehouse capabilities in BW like Integration, Harmonization, Cross-System Consistency etc.
