SAP Hana has been  recognised as a leader among in-memory database platforms by Forrester Research.

Out of the 11  vendors selected by  Forrester to participate in the independent report  SAP HANA was positioned highest in Current Offering and Strategy categories, and among the highest in the third core category, Market Presence.

“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. Additional highlights of SAP’s ranking include:

  • SAP is the only company to earn a 5/5 score for vision
  • SAP is the only company to receive a 5/5 score for data management features and transaction capabilities
  • SAP also earned a 5/5 score for execution, market presence, customers, partners, revenue, performance and scale and analytics support

“We believe that our latest position as a leader in the Forrester Wave™ further validates the strategic path we are pioneering for in-memory computing across the industry,” said Greg McStravick, global head of Database and Technology, SAP. “We are helping customers move away from point database solutions to a much more powerful in-memory platform, capable of running any analytical and transactional application in a single environment. Our commitment to delivering continuous innovation around the platform ensures we are helping customers succeed in today’s digital economy.”

The number of customers transforming their business with the solution is dramatically increasing. It currently has more than 7,200 customers, doubling from only one year ago. SAP HANA Cloud Platform has quickly built momentum with more than 1,500 customers. Adoption of SAP HANA by start-ups has soared, with more than 2,100 using the SAP HANA platform today. In addition, there are more than 850,000 active users of SAP HANA.
