They are only strong with the logistic business project.""The JDBC connectors are very slow.""There's an issue in the partition. When you record more than two million records, partitioning does not work well. In Oracle it's easy. SAP must resolve this issue in order to be more competitive with Oracle.""SAP HANA is a very proprietary tool and there's not as much support available for it as there is for an SQL Server (which is more popular)."
