Commodore 64 vs. SAP HANA

375px-Commodore-64-Computer.jpgThe Commodore 64 , introduced in 1982, remains the best-selling single personal computer model of all time and I believe this to be so because it was priced right, readily available, and arrived at an inflexion point for its market.  SAP HANA, albeit on the other end of the technology spectrum, is poised to do just the same thing.  SAP is bringing HANA to travel and transportation with innovations for passenger travel – precision retailing, cargo transportation, fleet analytics, sales & marketing with Customer 360, and SAP Business Suite on HANA.
