This is a significant development!
Announcing the next big release of HANA.
Enhancements to include Data Management and advanced analytics.
Available on November 30, 2016.
SAP have decided to draw a line in the sand at HANA SPS12 and rename the product to HANA 2. The first release – due November 30 2016 – will now be called HANA 2 SPS0 rather than HANA SPS13. It will be followed by HANA 2 SPS1, etc.
