In today’s increasingly complex, data rich world, companies are beginning to see the cracks in single modal IT architectures. Whether it be the inability to handle and adapt to complex data types, or the lack of stability in a platform’s performance, large companies have begun pivoting to bimodal architectures for efficiency and consistency.  And what’s at the core of those bimodal architectures? SAP HANA.
SAP HANA has always been a powerful tool for Mode 1 (operational systems) landscapes, whether it be for maximized end-to-end supply chains, or traditional transactional modeling on existing operational systems. These systems might be renewed, rejuvenated, or refreshed, but SAP HANA remains at the core because of its tested reliability.
For innovation systems in Mode 2 (systems…

Since SAP was founded in 1972, there has been one key ingredient at the heart of our success: the developers. Because it is not only that the best run businesses run SAP, but that the best developers build on SAP. We believe openness is a fundamental requirement to attract and engage with developers – inside and outside of SAP. It is openness that makes our software even richer and more powerful, and open source frameworks play a crucial role in accelerating innovation, something that is crucial in the digital economy.
The days of separate open source and proprietary software are now firmly in the past. In modern enterprise environments, commercial enterprise applications and open source software are combined. SAP has been a supporter of open source software for many years, actively supporting open…

I’m excited to announce that SAP continues to receive market leadership recognition for SAP HANA.
In our latest news, Gartner, for the 5th consecutive year, positioned SAP as a “leader” in its Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems (OPDMS). In the report, Gartner identified SAP as a Leader for its “ability to execute” and “completeness of vision.”
It’s also been a good year for continued progress in product…

Dynamic routing between capsules Sabour et al., NIPS’17
The Morning Paper isn’t trying to be a ‘breaking news’ site (there are plenty of those already!) — we covered a paper from 1950 last month for example! That said, when exciting research news breaks, of course I’m interested to read up on it. So The Morning Paper tends to be a little late to the party, but in compensation I hope to cover the material in a little more depth than the popular press. Recently there’s been some big excitement around Geoff Hinton’s work on capsules (and let’s not forget the co-authors, Sabour & Frosst), AlphaZero playing Go against itself, and Scharwtz-Ziv & Tishby’s information bottleneck theory of deep neural networks. This week I’ll be doing my best to understand those papers, and share with you what I can.
There are two capsule-related papers from Hinton. The first of them is from NIPS’17, and it’s today’s paper choice: ‘…

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) aims to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches and will reshape the way organizations across the globe approach data privacy. As of May 2018, these regulations will be directly applicable in all EU and European Economic Area (EEA) member states.
While GDPR does not introduce many substantially new concepts, it does increase the compliance requirements on controllers (someone who determines the purposes and means of processing personal data) and on processors (someone who processes personal data on behalf of the controller).
Organizations found in breach of the regulation can expect fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million – whichever is greater. Fines of this scale could very easily lead to insolvency, and thus it is no surprise that GDPR is one of the issues keeping executives up at night. In today’s data-driven economy, the question on many people’s minds is how to use business data…

A model for reasoning about JavaScript promises§ Madsen et al., OOPSLA’17
As an antidote to callback-hell, ECMAScript 6 introduces Promises. Promises represent the value of an asynchronous computation, and the functions resolve and reject are used to settle the promise. Promises can be chained using then.

However, the semantics of JavaScript promises are quite complex, and since the feature is implemented by way of ordinary function calls, there are no static checks to ensure correct usage. As a result, programmers often make mistakes in promise-based code that leads to pernicious errors, as is evident from many reported issues on forums such as StackOverflow.

This paper introduces the notion of a promise graph, which can be used to visualise the flow in a promises-based program and help to detect a range of…

As we come to the last stage of our 4 blog journey, we will focus on Swagger to test the Rest APIs.
Swagger UI  is an open source tool which generates a web page. This web page documents the Restful APIs generated by Swagger specification. This UI presentation of APIs is user friendly, easy to understand with all the complexity of business logic kept behind the screen. This is a great tool for developers, testers and end consumers, to understand the end points. It also allows you to manually test these APIs from this web page. Please see below the sample screenshot of how the UI looks.
Adding Some “Swag” To Your API Testing
The Swagger UI is automatically generated from any API…

Type test scripts for TypeScript testing Kristensen et al., OOPLSA’17
Today’s edition of The Morning Paper comes with a free tongue-twister; ‘type test scripts for TypeScript testing!’
One of the things that people really like about TypeScript is the DefinitelyTyped repository of type declarations for common (otherwise untyped) JavaScript libraries. There are over 3000 such declaration files now available. This is a great productivity boost, but it’s not perfect:

These declaration files are… written and maintained manually, which leads to many errors. The TypeScript type checker blindly trusts the declaration files, without any static or dynamic checking of the library code.

So it would be great if there was a way of running automated tests to verify that the TypeScript declaration files actually match the…
