I recently joined GridGain as a Technology Evangelist. My role is to help build the global Apache® Ignite™ community and raise awareness through presentations and technical writing. My background is database systems and I have no previous experience with Apache Ignite. So, in this series of articles, I will share what I learned about Apache Ignite as a beginner and I hope that this will also be useful to other beginners. In this first blog post, I will cover clustering and deployment.

Attendees of SAPPHIRE NOW in Orlando can agree that the show had a palpable feel of urgency this year. Companies that have waited to start their journey to digital transformation are no longer in a position to consider it – the time is NOW, and there’s not a minute to lose. This was underscored by the launch of SAP Leonardo, a digital innovation system that integrates the latest technologies to enable innovation at scale. For companies that followed the call to digital years ago, Leonardo is the next step to making the most of your digital operations. For those who didn’t – well, based on the lines for the Leonardo demo snaking through the convention center – the competition is onto you.
My group, SAP Database and Data Management, houses some of the most important technology…

The following is a blog by Bjoern Goerke, Chief Technology Officer, SAP and President, SAP Cloud Platform, SAP.
Today marks an important milestone in the history of SAP Cloud Platform and I am very excited to finally reveal what our teams have been working on for the last number of months.
Openness is a central theme in today’s keynote presented by Bernd and I’m very proud of the fact that SAP Cloud Platform has been designed to be an open platform from day one. Since its incubation, openness has been a key principle guiding every decision and many of the announcements we share with you today build on that philosophy.
In fact, let me be very open on my views with regards to what I believe SAP needs to deliver to help our customers succeed in the months and years ahead.
We live in a time of accelerated change, a time where…

In March this year, we announced that SAP and Google have teamed up to offer customers openness and cloud choice. As boundaries between B2B and B2C markets blur, this partnership addresses the growing demand from businesses to tap into large volumes of new types of data that provide an unprecedented level of transparency and value to companies and consumers.
There are many great examples of “disruptors” with innovative and radically new business models that have turned industries such as travel, music, and media on their heads. But while these success stories often involve consumer-facing start-ups, a new phenomenon is becoming evident: As business models are reimagined and entire value chains digitalized, it’s technology for…
