The road to SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA is paved with uncertainties, no matter how well intentioned SAP SE has been with its renewed focus on customer needs and benefits.

As little as a few years ago, businesses had limited choice in terms of hardware — appliances available for SAP HANA only ran on commodity architecture and many of which were not sufficiently equipped for the flexibility, performance, and reliability that HANA and S/4HANA demand.
