Difference between C_HANAIMP_16 & C_HANADEV_16
What is the difference between C_HANAIMP_16 and C_HANADEV_16?
We know both are exam codes to get certified as a SAP HANA consultant in version 2.0 but then what is the difference? First of all, you should not think that because you approved one then you can easily approve the other because the questions are really different.
The main difference between C_HANAIMP_16 and C_HANADEV_16 is that C_HANADEV_16 has more questions about application development, SQLScript, SAP HANA XSA, SAPUI5, using Git for source code management to mention a few.
In contrast, C_HANAIMP_16 has more modeling and SQLScript questions.
Let’s remember that C_HANAIMP_16 is the exam for SAP Certified Application Associate - SAP HANA 2.0 and that is the reason you should go for this certification if you want to work more with data modeling and the design of Calculation Views.
C_HANADEV_16 is the exam for SAP Certified Development Associate - SAP HANA 2.0 and that is the reason you should go for this certification if you want to work more with application development, SQLScript, Data Services, others and be comfortable using SAP Web IDE for SAP HANA.
Both exams are really though but we have already created the exam guide for C_HANAIMP_16 which you can check HERE and the the exam guide for C_HANADEV_16 which you can access HERE.
Do I really have to choose? Can I get both certifications?
The good news is that as you might be aware SAP will only grant you a certification if you apply for CER006 Certification in the Cloud exams. And some great news is that with CER006 you will have 6 attempts. Therefore, if you prepare with our guides and you approve on your first attempt say C_HANAIMP_16 then you can use your second attempt for C_HANADEV_16, and then you could apply for C_HANATEC_16, and so on and so forth!
