The Frameworks team continued its journey along the winding road to Hana by releasing a significant beta update this past Friday. With this release we have now released initial versions of every core Service Management Function (SMF) with the exception of the Team Model, which I can assure is coming! So, without further delay, below is the latest beta invitation e-mail, along with the Connect ID and Invitation link necessary for you to access the content and share your feedback and opinions with us.

Our goal for this beta is to receive feedback from a broad group of IT experts regarding Hana’s content structure and high-level concepts across the entire set of SMFs. Your feedback will be addressed in our March and April beta releases, but we’ll need your input soon to make Hana the best it can be.
Before you start reading the content, please take a look at the Reviewer’s Guide, which lists some of the specific feedback we’re seeking. We’ve intentionally presented content in different ways in certain SMFs, and how you respond to these differences will guide our final choices. The Hana beta is available on the Connect website via invitation only.
To join the Beta, visit our Connect site.
We are very excited to get this content out in front of an even wider audience and relying on you to continue to provide open and honest feedback for us to make Hana truly be a collection of industry best practices. Please let us know what you think!

If you are having any problems accessing the beta USING the link to Connect provided in this Blog post, please use the Contact form on this blog or e-mail me directly and I will see that you receive an invite. I'm not sure what the issue is as most people are now able to Connect with the program directly, but we will get it worked out.
