SAP Hana; The end of SQL / ESS?

Today I was told by a customer that their backend was "SAP Hana" and does not run SQL.  So it seems SAP has adopted their own proprietary database technology and FileMaker ESS won't work with it.  What frightened me is SAP's willingness to use their own technology vs. a standard like SQL.  One wonders if Microsoft and Oracle will do the same.  I feel for FileMaker trying to keep up with all of these trends and wonder if FileMaker will be able to support ESS to Hana, though I would guess using the JSON API is going to be the method.
