More on SAP: During a Sapphire Now talk, chairman Hasso Plattner makes clear that Hana is central to SAP's product strategy, rather than just a part of it. "It's not about Hana anymore. It's about the applications on Hana." To drive home his point, Plattner brags over 60% of Hana deployments involve non-SAP apps, and that the database is supported by software from 431 startups. The comments come shortly after SAP made good on expectations it would begin offering Hana through a managed cloud service that can be used to migrate on-premise SAP workloads. (more on Hana)
