Accenture becomes first Major SI to Invest in HANA
Accenture has been setting all sorts of records as of late. A month ago it became the first company to launch a public cloud service based on Microsoft Azure, and now it’s flexing its R&D muscle at SAP SAPphire 2012. One of the highlights of this week’s gathering is Accenture’s revelation of its intentions to carry out a massive commitment to the HANA in-memory analytics platform and the surrounding ecosystem. This investment will cover the training of 1,000 IT professionals.
