Still in the field of in-memory databases, here’s a quote from Peter Goldmacher about SAP’s last quarter financial results:
[…] we note that about half of the revenue shortfall was in SAP’s much-hyped
HANA business. While an interesting technology, we continue to believe that
emerging flexible, low-cost data management solutions are dampening interest
in premium solutions such as HANA.
The first part is the fact. The second part is the analyst’s opinion. While a quarter is not a trend, there still needs to be an explanation. And the one offered by the analyst sounds good to me.
