News Detail » HANA and Real-Time ERP data

Enterprise customers eager for the fast in-memory technology of SAP HANA for ERP data analysis will have to be patient, according to one SAP official. That particular milestone isn’t planned until 2014.

“We’re trying to manage disruption,” said Mike Eacrett, vice president of product management for SAP HANA at SAP Labs in Palo Alto, Calif. “It’s the innovator’s dilemma,” Eacrett said, “figuring out how to take advantage of new opportunities while managing change.”

Yet Eacrett predicted that SAP will deliver on customer demand for in-memory analysis of the full ERP in 2014. “We’re already doing it in-house,” he said.

Customers who don`t want to wait would be smart to look at other complimentary in-memory solutions that work seamlessly with SAP ERP and SAP Netweaver and SAP BOBJ data stores.  We believe that the TCO for some of these newer next-gen solutions will be far better for SAP customers and they are available now.  Contact us for more information.
