    Vinnie – you seem to have a paid agenda with repeated blogs on this point of view. The HANA adoption numbers are awesome! 1000 startups, in less a year of launch of Business Suite on HANA we have many more companies than WDAY and other companies, we have the revenue to show that it is the fastest growing product with in revenue from HANA platform and apps (according the metric you like revenue from product introduced in last 5 years!) Please wait for exact numbers, we will have it on earnings day on Jan 21st, cant say due to black out period.

    Amit you also have 100x the sales and marketing budget of Workday. Why not compare yourself to Apple.?

    Amit, you prelim numbers today showed HANA at about 4% of 2013 revenues. I look forward to the furious selling you plan to do to change that by January 21

    As someone who wants to be an analytical leader it is amazing how SAP and its partners refuse to accept the data about awfully low (less than 1%) adoption in its customer base. Just signing up a bunch of startups (at give away prices) does not change the fact that your existing customer base has not adopted it.

    Keep hyping but that does little to your attempt to position as a fact v fiction based analytical vendor.
