SAP HANA False Claims

Where Did All of the Pro HANA Resources Disappear To?

Executive Summary

  • For years HANA resources talked a brave game.
  • However, in the March 2019 layoffs, HANA resources have become quiet as a mouse.


We discussed the topic of the disappearing HANA resources with Eduardo Muniz at the Advantage Group.

Eduardo’s Observation

“>Shaun Snapp. Interesting that all SAP Conversationalists that challenge articles like yours and profited from being behind SAP are completely mute. No comments….”

Our Response

“Good point. I am expecting a few however because this article is driving a lot of traffic. Most likely the comment will be very much filled with gratuitous personal attacks. The last argument used was that no one should comment at this time because it is inhumane. SAP resources have particular rules about when SAP can be fact-checked. Its like one day every four weeks is when fact checking is allowed, between the hours of 3 AM and 5 AM. But outside of that designated time, it is considered inappropriate and unprofessional. So it is important to keep away from the evidence and to focus on me and Brightwork. I am waiting for some SAP resource to blame Brightwork for the issues with HANA. There was literally an army of pro-HANA advocates that are becoming increasingly silent.”


Resources like John Appleby of Bluefin Solutions who spread so much false information about HANA are now nowhere to be found, and he won’t account for How John Appleby Was So Wrong About His HANA Predictions.

They are now nowhere to be seen in the media landscape for HANA and won’t account for the previous fallacious information they published.

After all, the brave talk about how HANA would change the world, after repeating everything that SAP and Hasso Plattner said, and where we speculated what is the Difference Between an SAP Consulting Company and a Parrot on HANA?, HANA resources have become increasingly silent.
