The SAP world is buzzing about who will win the HANA Real-Time Race taking place Tuesday through Thursday (October 16 – 18) at SAP TechEd 2012 in Las Vegas.
Led by Optimal SAP HANA Practice Director Leon Reznick and Optimal SAP BI Solution and Practice Director Jeremy Stierwalt — and coming off a recent victory at the first annual ASUG BusinessObjects Users Group Conferenc Developer Wars, — it’s fair to say that team Optimal is amped for the challenge.
Joining the Optimal pit crew for this race was EMC Global SAP Lead Henrik Wagner, EMC Global Senior SAP Infrastructure Architect Christoph Streubert, EMC Senior Director of SAP Product Management Haji Aref, and Senior Product Manager at Cisco Erik Lillestolen.
With more than 17 years of experience, Optimal is perhaps the largest pure-play SAP solutions and services provider in North America, deploying, maintaining and supporting the entire range of SAP solutions — including all SAP and BusinessObjects modules and industry solutions, the latest NetWeaver technology, and the full offerings from Sybase and SuccessFactors.
But Optimal’s success in the HANA Real-Time Race will hinge most heavily on its expertise and leading-edge skills working directly with SAP HANA, SAP Analytics, SAP BI, SAP Mobility, and SAP Business Warehouse solutions.
Equally vital, if not more so, will be Optimal’s experience and skill addressing a customer’s most pressing business challenges and providing the customer with accurate, real-time, easily consumed insight that positively impacts important business decisions day in and day out.
As a rule, Optimal is hardware agnostic when it comes to HANA. For this race, per SAP’s direction, Optimal will be driving the newly launched Cisco UCS with EMC Storage for SAP HANA Scale-out Solution.

Now, I’m not one for calling a race before it’s run, but team Optimal — with support from Cisco and EMC – certainly looks strong…
