SAP puts Business Suite on HANA

SAP has announced that its Business Suite ERP software now runs on the HANA in-memory database. According to industry analysts, in the near term SAP Business Suite on HANA should be seen as an opportunistic upgrade for existing customers. Few if any enterprises currently rank replacement of enterprise systems as top priority.

This would seem to be a fair assessment, but it is important to realise that this offers an opportunity for CIOs to simplify their applications landscape, putting transactional and analytical processes on a single platform. It is not just about speeding things up, it is about taking complexity out of the landscape. UK and Ireland customers looking at the latest release of Business Suite will have the HANA option.
