SAP's executive Board Member and the visionary of HANA, Vishal Sikka has reportedly resigned for some personal reasons. The resignation was effective immediately.


According to TechCrunch, Sikka lead the development of SAP's big in-memory database product called HANA, which the company has seen as a foundational technology.

Meanwhile, SAP has appointed a couple of new board members,
Robert Enslin and Bernd Leukert.

The resignation indicates some power struggle or confusion at the German multinational software corporation.

Co founder and analyst R Ray Wang said that this marks a big change at SAP, especially since many had seen Sikka as a possible candidate for CEO.
