Exploding the myths of SAP HANA
If you are a long-time SAP application user then SAP would you like you to migrate to SAP HANA. However, this is not a simple decision: it is an expensive option, and it is disruptive from a technical point of view. In addition, SAP HANA is a brand as much as a product, and it means different things in different contexts. The alternative, for SAP users, is to continue with the status quo, at least for the time being. In practice, this means sticking with SAP Business Suite applications based on third-party database products. In this paper, we discuss these and associated issues.
