Despite SAP's glowing S/4HANA announcement, analysts say extent of Business Suite move to HANA in-memory database and migration path are still unclear.
In what it said was its biggest product announcement in 25 years, SAP today rolled out the next generation of its ERP platform. Called SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA (SAP S/4HANA, for short), the software is SAP's biggest effort so far to deliver on the user-friendly "Run Simple" theme it launched last spring.
In a presentation before industry and financial analysts in New York, SAP CEO Bill McDermott portrayed S/4HANA as a major rewrite of SAP's core ERP technology to run on its HANA in-memory database. "The thing we had to do is reinvent that great core," McDermott said, adding in a press release that "this is an historic day and we believe it marks the beginning of the end for the 20th century IT stack and all the complexity that came with it."
McDermott characterized the new S/4HANA code base as capable of being run in public or managed clouds, or on-premises. "Anything you can do in the cloud you can also do on-premises," he said.
