2559889 - Bad performance when using live connection to SAP HANA in SAP Analytics Cloud


Bad performance when using live connection to SAP HANA in SAP Analytics Cloud


  • SAP Analytics Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Configure a Live Data Connection to SAP HANA using a Direct Connection
  2. Create a Model based on an SAP HANA View
  3. Create a complex Story with several charts based on the Model based on an SAP HANA View
  4. Notice the Story takes a long time to load all charts


Story design was the main factor in this case.


  1. Minimize the number of Table objects per Story Page to improve rendering speed
  2. Save a copy of the Story and Model for each Language to take advantage of the pre-saved metadata feature
  3. Minimize the quality and quantity of images to reduce the amount of data downloaded for each page
