SAP HANA projects or applications may be divided broadly into four classes -

  1. Suite on HANA - Here the Business Suite (ECC, CRM etc) gets migrated from Suite on xDB (like Oracle, MSSQL, DB2 etc) to Suite on HANA. This is additional of a technical migration project however purposeful consultants play a serious role in testing and confirmative the configs post-migration

  2. BW on HANA - the same as higher than where BW on xDB gets migrated to BW on HANA. Functional consultants hardly play any role here excluding validation.

  3. Analytics and Apps on HANA - numerous new Analytics applications (Enterprise HANA Models, Predictive Analytics etc) can be built on top of HANA. Here purposeful consultants play a serious role to supply all the business logic to the technical team to create the apps.

  4. New Apps on HANA - SAP is releasing a lot of recent apps on HANA where they're optimized and simplified to run on HANA. For example, sFIN (Simple Finance) where SAP is coming with a new FI application having a single document for both GL and COPA.

Having said all the above, the functional consultants need not procure any specific knowledge to play their roles in assignments of 1/2/3 above. But a basic understanding of SAP HANA extremely helps to a large extent.

My suggestion would for functional consultants to find out the fourth kind of application that I have mentioned above.

Hope this helps
