“The world is going to go on a new course” – Bill McDermott – SAP CEO

Anyone following SAP lately should know that SAP’s goal is to reorient its entire product family around the HANA in-memory database.

HANA provides a level of performance improvement that can be nothing short of dazzling.

Companies can’t achieve the performance improvement and cost reductions results using the same old technologies anymore.

SAP is redefining the concept of enterprise resource planning and SAP S/4HANA is about Software and People building businesses that run real-time, networked and simple. Technologies changes very fast, and this is a good time to start thinking about those changes.

If you never heard about HANA or are unsure if you know the basic about HANA, here is a SAP interactive use Case Map with all that you need to know to start… Ok, it is a 434 pages PDF, there are more information that you will need to start, but it is still very good information:
