Hana needs more speed
This text has been automatically translated from German to English.

The analysts at ISG therefore believe that SAP and the service providers in the SAP ecosystem still have a duty to support companies in their migration to Hana in order to increase the speed of the changeover.

On the basis of Leonardo, the ISG analysts have so far mainly recorded productive logistics applications along the companies' goods and supply chains. In addition, functionalities for artificial intelligence, machine learning and blockchain and IoT technologies are to be expected.

According to the ISG study, Hana has now established itself as the standard in the area of SAP-based business warehouse applications. One of the biggest challenges remains data management.

Particularly in the area of Hana technology, the question arises as to the most suitable operating model in each case, as cloud-based infrastructures (Platform as a Service) are becoming more and more widespread. According to ISG, providers must be able to implement hybrid models.
