Last week during the BI 2012 conference, we were happy to host Dan Kearnan of SAP when he made a special appearance at the SAPexperts booth to discuss SAP HANA.
It was a more personal setting that you don't often get during our traditional educational sessions at the BI show. The appearance was 15 minutes long and meant to be a quick stop-over for attendees visiting the booth or heading to lunch -- "speed-dating with HANA," Kearnan quipped.

Kearnan talked about where the in-memory technology is heading in 2012 and beyond, with the utlimate goal of HANA replacing databases and serving as the data foundation for all SAP applications, including SAP NetWeaver BW.
Additionally, SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0 is specially designed to work on top of HANA, he said.
We'll continue our special booth m
