Managing SAP Hana Connectors

The Zoomdata SAP Hana connector allows you to access the data stored within your in-memory database. Zoomdata supports SAP Hana version 2.0. SAP Hana also supports derived fields/row level calculations. By default, SAP Hana is not included with Zoomdata. Before you can establish a connection from Zoomdata to SAP Hana, a connector server needs to be installed, configured and enabled.

The SAP Hana connector requires a JDBC driver to be configured before you can connect to your data source. You can download the driver from the vendor's site. For information and steps, see Adding a JDBC Driver.
