The one thing brightworks surely isn‘t is to be yet another replicator of the one-sided SAP Global Communications fudd that most media and -surprisingly - even the financial analysts exhale.
I agree though that brightworks is overdoing their criticism and by that damaging their credibility.
@121Un6yX-1sjo Link to the article please.
Oh, and by the way folks.... Der Spiegel is a respected journal. Brightwork Research is a frequent purveyor of fake news or, at the very least, poorly researched content... which is pretty interesting, considering its name. I'd exercise caution when considering anything Brightwork puts out there.
Not all content is created equal.
NVRAM is a goof as well, HANA in general is a mess. hundreds of CPU cores and terabytes of memory for a single DB? And people have the nerve to crow about it being fast? LOL!! Yeah - no duh! It's 1000x more expensive to run than a traditional RDBMS
I followed that story ever since 2015. There seems some (bad) truth to it on both ends.
It would obviously devastate Hasso‘s genius image if Hana turns out to be a copycat of foreign IP. The commercial damage would be limited though. Hana‘s uniqueness is anyway dead in the waters since non-volatile RAM has reached general availability.
In 2015, German publication Der Spiegel dropped a bombshell report; it alleged that SAP’s internal auditors found SAP engineers misusing intellectual property from other companies, including Teradata. Moreover, the audit specifically claimed that HANA’s development had improperly drawn on external IP. Shortly after presenting their findings to SAP leadership, the auditors were fired.
Hmmm, I want first dibs on the movie rights of this story - a lot more exciting than most garbage hollywood movies. I wonder what the top gun co CEOs are thinking right now ....
oh! how much legal damage will that be? is that why so many senior executives left and cashed out?
