Out of 11 major vendors analyzed, SAP HANA ranked the highest in the crucial Current Offering and Strategy categories.

“SAP’s razor-sharp focus on in-memory technology is paying off,” wrote Noel Yuhanna, Forrester’s principal analyst serving enterprise architecture professionals, in the report. This prestigious designation validates SAP’s pioneering role in driving widespread in-memory computing adoption. According to the report, SAP HANA stood apart from competitors in several key areas:
