I thought it would be useful to lay out a few details about HANA Distinguished Engineer Council, for information and for transparency.
The idea behind the HANA Distinguished Engineer program came from a collaboration between Deloitte’s Harald Reiter, Bluefin’s John Appleby, Independent Jon Reed and then IBM’s Vijay Vijayasankar – with a contribution from SAP Board Member Vishal Sikka, SAP Marketing’s Amit Sinha and David Hull.
The original council was therefore, self-appointing, and Michael Eacrett joined to represent SAP HANA whilst David has since left.
HANA Distinguished Engineer Council Members
What does the Council do?
The council primarily has the following charter:
- Appoint and retire HANA Distinguished Engineers and council members
- Help define topics for internal webinars and external speaking events
- Promote the HANA Distinguished Engineers
When does the Council meet?
There isn’t a regular schedule, but there is a call most months.
