I believe HANA represents the most significant innovation in SAP’s history. A year ago I wrote a quick summary of some of the key value points that HANA brings to an organization and I focused specifically on BW on HANA, one of the most common HANA use cases for existing SAP customers. Over the last 12 months and multiple Sapphire’s I’m hearing more and more about out different customers are leveraging HANA to get access to detailed, real-time data to analyze massive amounts of information in seconds and solve issues that couldn’t be solved before.
