This week brought the return of Internet of Things World at the Santa Clara Convention Center. This year the show also included the Connected and Autonomous Vehicles conference. As far as technology trade shows go, it was a pretty exciting and ground breaking show. There were dozens of interesting talks and demos and well over 200 exhibitors with every possible flavor of hardware and software related to IoT that you can imagine.

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…
With SAP Sapphire Now 2017 just less than a week away, there are a multitude of exciting product announcements to make their way. Announcements in the area of Business Applications, Analytics, Industries plus Partner innovations are sure to keep everyone excited and enthused going in and coming out of the event! One area I’m quite excited about is SAP BW/4HANA and the innovations surrounding SAP Business Planning and Consolidation (SAP BPC) and how they are coming together.

I'm really looking forward to tomorrow's webinar with GridGain founder and CEO Nikita Ivanov and Jason Stamper, a data platforms & analytics analyst from 451 Research.
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…
Today, SAPPHIRE NOW, SAP’s largest customer event, is opening its doors in Orlando once more to share its latest product innovations with customers and partners. Many major SAP products and releases, like SAP S/4HANA Cloud and SAP Connected Health, were launched at SAPPHIRE NOW.
This year, SAP HANA at SAPPHIRE NOW is at the forefront of SAP’s “Digital Thought Leadership”. It forms the basis of making SAP the most innovative cloud company powered by SAP HANA. That’s why in Orlando, we will be demonstrating how we are innovating across the entire stack with SAP HANA 2:
- On the hardware technology layer – our long-term partner Intel will announce on stage that their upcoming non-volatile dual in-line memory module (DIMMS) based on 3D XPoint technology will integrate with SAP HANA. This technology will make memory…
I'm excited to announce a new GridGain Systems white paper, Choosing the Right In-Memory Computing Solution, that explains the reasons to use in-memory computing and then walks through how to choose the right architecture and feature set to meet your needs.
In the first generation of the SAP App Center we focused on applications that were designed to run on SAP Cloud Platform. The SAP App Center developed into great resource for customers who were looking for applications to extend their digital core.
At the same time, SAP continued to run other marketplaces, particularly those that are associated with our cloud applications like – SAP SuccessFactors, SAP Analytics, Concur, SAP Ariba, and others. The marketplaces continued to grow, and we uncovered a problem. We had partners who developed applications that had to list and maintain their applications on multiple marketplaces. And we had customers who had to visit multiple SAP marketplaces to find what they were looking for.
So last year, we set out on a mission. Starting with SAP SuccessFactors App Center, we consolidated the SAP…
I was working on a home improvement project some years back, sheet-rocking my family room, if you must know. The hardest thing about sheet rocking is cutting out sections to accommodate light switches, outlets, speaker mounts, and other wall and ceiling receptacles. To say it’s tedious is an understatement. A friend came by to see what sort of mess I was making and he watched me as I proceeded to use my utility knife to carve out the sections for my receptacles. Seeing what I was doing, he goes to his truck and returns with an amazing tool— a battery-powered speed saw. This amazing tool saved me tons of time and pain and it was like it was made exactly for what I needed. The perfect tool for the job.
The following is a partner blog by Jan Van Ansem, Principal Consultant at Bluefin Solutions.
Traditionalists believe that it isn’t possible to deliver value to the business through the agile methodology on enterprise data warehousing (EDW) projects. However, we may still be riding around on a horse and cart if we didn’t challenge ‘the accepted’. I’m not only going to challenge, but also illustrate how moving to agile will increase user adoption and ultimately the success of the EDW projects.
Agile software development has quickly proven its value in delivering high quality applications that meet customer needs. When it comes to meeting the customer’s needs EDW projects often fail to meet expectations, as research has illustrated time and time again. Interestingly, ‘Agile’ is not widely adapted as a…
