SAP HANA is ready for primetime this year

SAP HANA  (the SanssouciDB project from which it’s built) now is mature and has a place in the market.  The HANA project has a clear goal of a single store for OLTP and OLAP processing. This has major benefits. Not least the cost of managing (multiple) separate OLTP / OLAP data resources and feeds.  But one cautionary note about SAP HANA is the pace of change. There are new elements of functionality coming in each major release. This is every six months. This pace of change poses challenges (and opportunities!) to some because the latest version of SAP HANA may contain something you didn’t know you could have.

I have been following this technology since it is at HPI.  Since its launch  I’ve been involved in  SAP HANA projects, from solution architecture  to managing the projects.
