SUSE recently asked the America SAP Users Group (ASUG) to conduct a survey of SAP leaders, engineers, and architects in North America about their plans for SAP HANA adoption. The ASUG documented the results in this white paper “A Headache-Free Hybrid Approach to Adopting SAP HANA“.
The main message is that customers are adopting the cloud for workloads that are not mission-critical, while keeping their core systems on-premise.
I’m glad I recognized it some time ago, which is seen in my blog SAP Solution Manager as a Service.
One more thing – I advise them to remove “Headache-Free” from the headline (I did) ;-).
