The 3 principles of good enterprise design for SAP HANA

Despite the fact that HANA is an appliance, its incorporation in an enterprise solution means the implementation must align to the three core principles of good enterprise design: stability, scalability, and agility.

Enterprise solution design for SAP HANA from HP

Stability
• What is the availability service-level agreement (SLA) for your solution? Is your hardware provider or hosting partner committed to support you to that level? What is your disaster tolerance requirement?
• How does this solution integrate with your organization’s support structures for other elements of the
enterprise landscape?
• Have you clearly defined a maintainable, automated security concept that aligns to your enterprise security
requirements? Have you documented it and have the relevant stakeholders signed off on it?

Scalability
• What is the design principle for adding functional areas to the initial design?
• Will the solution require intercompany billing? Are there other chargeback/showback requirements for business units migrating to the stack, or developing on it?
• What’s the approach for protecting against unauthorized viewing of secure data from specific functional areas?
• What are the projected data volume and user growth? If these projections are exceeded, what is the solution scaling plan?

Agility
• What are the initial boundaries of scope for development on this element of the landscape?
• How does your modeling practice ensure that your solution can evolve for other purposes?
• For development outside these boundaries, what is the change request process and who are the key signoff parties for that change?
