CIOs may not like HANA but they still seem to love SAP.
Despite the fact (evidence, I have witnessed this no less 40 times in my career) that whenever a company goes SAP, it inevitably costs them at least 50% above the quoted price for installation, at least 100% over the quoted price for customization to actually make it do what it was sold as doing (but doesn't), an endless outflow of money on keeping it running at all (it still regularly doesn't), a large training budget and even then, it reduces the efficiency of everyone who has to work with it which knocks on to those affect even those who don't, not to mention the customers.
When it's up.
There is no excuse for SAP. It cripples IT budgets, ties up staff on long-winded processes, crashes regularly and has never saved anyone money, ever.
SAP salesmen should shot on sight.
