SAP did not create Hana in-memory database. They wrote a check to buy it. I don't think that qualifies as innovative.

They did create it. Who do you think they bought it from?

It came out of the TREX project, that is an SAP project.


Hana came from a company founded in 2000 by Sang Cha, a Stanford University professor, that spent 5 years developing this and was acquired by SAP in November 2005. This acquisition then formed the basis of SAP R&D Korea.

I stand corrected. Thank you!
