If anyone knows what "it kind of will" means, will you let me know?
"SAP never really admits to the fact that it will sell you one of its cheaper databases assimilated as part of its Sybase acquisition, but it kind of will."
- Adrian Bridgwater, SAP's Platform-Play: Reengineering Programming For The 'New' Economics
Yeah, yeah, I know what the words mean... what I want to know is, how exactly does one buy the SQL Anywhere database server these days?
Not from the SAP Store, one doesn't :)
"We're working to correct this"
Let's be optimisic!
The SQL Anywhere server will soon be available on the SAP Store!
Let's not fret about "licensing model"... or "up the chain" :)
Second Funniest Line From TechEd 2016
It's always funny when someone says "I had no clue SAP SQL Anywhere existed"... or sad... or depressing, depending on your mood.
"Wednesday turned out to be quite a productive day here at TechEd. It started bright and early with the session DMM106 "Introduction to SAP SQL Anywhere". I had no clue SAP SQL Anywhere existed until I saw the TechEd agenda few weeks earlier, so this definitely goes with the "exploration" theme this year. Had an extra cup of coffee and was prepared to sneak out in the middle, but surprisingly Jose Ramos from SAP kept the lively session flow and made the information quite simple to understand even for non-experts like myself. Well done."

But... if a PowerBuilder Revival Movement is truly underway, can a SQL Anywhere Revival be far behind? :)
