The internet of things (IoT) has been coming for a long time. According to Gartner there will be 8.4 billion connected devices in 2017. More than 3 billion of those devices will be of a non-consumer variety, like industry or infrastructure amounting to almost a trillion $ in spending. By 2020 Gartner estimates that will have increased to 7.5 billion units, just on the business side of things.
Self-driving cars, automated factories, smart cities and more. All those devices generate huge amounts of data. In some cases, that’s the main purpose of the devices. These massive data sets must be handled pretty much instantaneously to meet the needs and demands of the fast paced business world of today, and also in some cases to make the devices useful at all.
Our mobile connections to the cloud won’t be enough for all this data. A self-driving car will have to much data for it to be pushed to the cloud for processing, in stead we’ll see distributed networks where transactions…

The following is a partner blog by Anne Sutanto, Marketing Manager at IBSolution GmbH

In hospitals, the sterile goods cycle should run like a modern factory. Right now, it often runs more like a small workshop. But replicable processes are key to sustain quality in sterile outcome and in patient treatment. Any failure in the sterilization cycle can lead to infections— in a worst-case scenario, with fatal results.

In a recent blog, I introduced the Data Warehouse Quadrant, a problem description for a data platform that is used for analytic purposes. The latter is called a data warehouse (DW) but labels, such as data mart, big data platform, data hub, and so on, are also used. In this blog, I will map some of the SAP products into that quadrant, which will hopefully yield a more consistent picture of the SAP strategy.
To recap: the DW quadrant has two dimensions. One indicates the challenges regarding data volume, performance, query and loading throughput and the like. The other one shows the complexity of the modeling on top of the data layer(s). A good proxy for the complexity is the number of tables, views, data sources,…

Recently Apache Ignite 2.0 introduce a beta version of the in-memory machine learning grid, which is a distributed machine learning library built on top of the Apache IMDG. This beta release of ML library can perform local and distributed vector, decompositions and matrix algebra operations. The data structure can be stored in Java heap, off-heap or distributed Ignite caches. At this moment, the Apache Ignite ML grid doesn't support any prediction or recommendation analysis. In this short post, we are going to download the new Apache Ignite 2.0 release, build the example and run them. 1. Download and unpack the Apache Ignite 2.0 distribution.Download the Apache Ignite 2.0 binary release version from the following link. Unpack the distribution somewhere in your workstation (e.g /home/ignite/2.0) and set the IGNITE_HOME path to the directory. 2. Start the Apache Ignite remote nodeRun…
