It’s been a while since I wrote specifically about SAP HANA. My focus on innovation, marketing, the financial world and Big Data kept me preoccupied from specifically writing something on HANA. Undoubtedly, HANA is forming the very core of SAP’s strategy. We see that with Ariba with Fiori and every possible SAP solution :) Sometimes the manner in which SAP positions HANA is really as the “One to rule them all”!
SAP has been really busy! Q1 and Q2 results had mixed reactions to the market. Vishal Sikka moved out and thus began a significant management re-org! SAP started partnering with open source projects – Cloud Foundry and OpenStack. SAP had an interesting partnership with Apigee around API Management (Application Programming Interfaces are the connectors that bind together different applications and devices) and in all the news the theme is about the adoption of SAP HANA!
