SAP HANA Track in Atlanta: The Evolution will be Televised

    By: Mr. Adrian Bridgwater on Feb 10, 2014

    Way back in the early mists of time (in 2011 to be precise) SAP started talking more volubly about SAP HANA.

    It was back in that year (during TechEd Las Vegas in fact) that a certain technology blog ran with this “gem” of sorts: Is SAP HANA a data analytics 'ace in the hole'? - CWDN.

    It is kind of interesting to see how we described SAP HANA back then:

    Described variously as the company's in-memory computing platform with a strong emphasis on ERP, it is perhaps more directly described as a high-performance analytical appliance with a supporting software and a hardware consideration to match…”

    … and that was a description that SAP was largely happy with at the time.

    Today though, SAP HANA is positioned at a somewhat higher level by many i.e. as a total data analytics platform and as a programming platform.

    Anyway, all this prelude and preamble is simply a means to talking about the SAP HAHA track which will be presented in Atlanta at the ISUG-TECH conference.

    SAP HANA track in Atlanta - an overview:
