Thank you for all who attended our Webinar on THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF SAP HANA. What an incredible session we had! 
An organization's data is like a treasure chest - once opened, riches are revealed. The challenge is unlocking the treasure chest. Organizations are deploying HANA to take advantage of their data to find new customer insights, streamline supply chains, process reporting faster and more. While HANA can unleash data, IBM®Power Systems™ unleashes HANA.
