Not sure why the analyst thought HANA was going to 'blow it out of the water'. Oracle has had TimesTen for years and their are other in memory database that have been around for ten years or more.

Sybase as the default SAP database engine

Interesting article. The biggest issue, and it is not covered in the article, is the fact that most companies are standardizing on databases other then Sybase. So, why would they then move their SAP database engine to Sybase? http://www.informationweek.com/news/software/enterprise_apps/229700180

Migrating DB2, Sybase, SQL Server to Oracle Exadata and the cloud

Customers and partners that are migrating from non-Oracle database platforms to the Oracle 'cloud in-a-box' solutions(Exadata) often ask: 'What is the most difficult aspect of the migration?' Is it the processors, applications, application middleware, storage, management software, database, network or something else. The answer is really...it depends. I always hated that answer but it does depend on: 1. Is your network already built to handle a high amount of traffic (high bandwidth) and GB+. 2. How much database logic does your system have. Are there a lot of stored procedures? 3. What is the application built in? Can the language easily be moved to the cloud? 4. Do you want to virtualize the application and use Oracle VM? 5. Does your storage or processors need to upgraded? All these components need to be considered. So, it does depend. More on this soon.
