Large enterprises are often terribly inefficient. Software companies are no exception. As a company’s product portfolio expands, so does the potential for redundancies and inefficiencies in what is developed. Acquisitions bring forth new technology stacks, and ‘re-platforming’ typically delays an innovation roadmap for many quarters. Concepts around master data, integration, and other key processes can be inconsistent and may overlap, or can even be re-produced and re-imagined repeatedly.
What if internal development teams could be corralled to eliminate duplicate effort, realize massive economies of scale, and increase efficiency? What if this efficiency could result in lower development costs, quicker times to market, and a burgeoning ecosystem of work that operationalizes and monetizes much of your core intellectual property?
Microservices —a modern architectural style in use by a growing number of large software companies— is the proven way forward…

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…

Peter Zaitsev, CEO and co-founder of Percona, says there are several key strategic benefits of using the Apache Ignite in-memory computing platform instead of Memcached, Redis, Elastic or even Apache Spark. 

I had the opportunity this week to connect with Peter and ask him about this and more questions as he prepares for next month's In-Memory Computing (IMC) Summit in Amsterdam June 20-21.
