Re: So, in other words..
"SAP ERP is arcane, SAP HANA is no cakewalk"
Yep. It seems like the issue with ERP is that the market has consolidated to the point where it is a "what else are you going to do?" situation.
SAP does seem to be pressing their luck lately though. HANA is a solution in search of a problem. People have to buy it though, because SAP will only run on HANA going forward. They are opening themselves up to attack though.
