“In the IT industry, like elsewhere, imitation is an obvious form of flattery, as in-memory efforts by vendors -- including IBM with the Blu Acceleration for DB2 10.5 it launched in April and Oracle with the In-Memory Option for Oracle Database announced at OpenWorld last month -- would seem to prove,” King said. “However, neither of those offerings is entirely analogous to HANA.

As King sees it, that’s largely because rather than being a systems vendor with proprietary solutions to promote, SAP remains devoted to software and open to working with virtually any vendor willing to develop systems that are able to pass the company‘s rigorous HANA certification process.

“Nearly every major server vendor is a SAP HANA partner -- Oracle, unsurprisingly, is the main holdout -- and many have achieved significant market success,” King said. “Consider the fact that the $204 million in third quarter revenues SAP accrued from HANA software sales represents a fraction of the total spent on related systems and services. In essence, HANA qualifies as a classic case of a vendor doing well for itself by doing good for its partners and customers.”

IBM had been working on BLU acceleration technology for 6 or 7 years prior to the release. So they were imitating (and also greatly improving on) many other column-organized relational databases, but not HANA.

It is exciting to see two colossus players coming together. But, hope it is not a death knell for EDW.

I've read this and I still have very little idea what it's about.
