I say treat because this is a great mix of technology and business stories. The white paper is based on the webinar given by Nikita Ivanov of GridGain and Peter Zaitsev of Percona.

What’s new in Apache Ignite.NET 1.9

Posted by Pavel Tupitsyn on Monday 13 March 2017, 17:00

Apache Ignite 1.9 has been released last week. Let’s see what is new in the .NET part.

TransactionScope API

Before 1.9, Ignite transactions could only be started explicitly with IIgnite.GetTransactions().TxStart() call.

Now you can also use standard TransactionScope API:

using (var ts = new TransactionScope())
{
cache[1] = 2;
cache[2] = 1;

// Transaction has been started on first transactional ICache method call.
Debug.Assert(ignite.GetTransactions().Tx != null);

ts.Complete();
}

Besides being easier to use, TransactionScope API allows performing transactional operations across multiple systems (via Two Phase Commit). For example…

Not too long ago, SAP’s core business was centered solely around applications and business processes. However, based on our constant interactions with our customers, we soon realized that they had additional needs, such as making data-driven decisions and support when it comes to performance and analytics. As a result, we knew classic databases needed to improve in the area of real-time data processing. We started to work on an in-memory database platform – and we are not talking just a basic database investment, but an entirely new approach to data management here.
With SAP HANA, companies can process and analyze large volumes of data in memory to deliver real-time insights to enterprise applications and analytic tools – enabling business users to make more informed decisions and act in the moment. SAP HANA has so-called translytical capabilities, meaning that it supports transactional and analytical workloads in real time on a single unified database without giving up…

Today’s digital transformation is driving rapid change across all industries, and its effects are profound. We are witnessing a paradigm shift with the commoditization of cloud computing and how its openness, flexibility, and scalability is driving digitalization globally. With billions of connected devices and the copious amount of data they generate, we see an ever-increasing demand to store and process distributed data in real-time.
Disruptive technologies – such as in-memory computing and machine learning – make it easier to uncover valuable information and enable companies to turn big data into smart data.
Whenever I speak to customers today, they all have the same concerns: How can we stay competitive in today’s fast pacing environment? Does our IT landscape have the high performance, computing power, flexibility, scalability, and security to meet current and future business needs?

Improve information governance rule enforcement with event driven notifications from SAP Information Steward
 
This new feature in the latest release of SAP Information Steward enhances usability and transparency for both approvers and data stewards.

    • Users are notified by email when key data domain score meets a specified sensitivity setting with an attached scorecard – viewed without the necessity of logging into Information Steward
    • Scorecard can be viewed on a variety of devices and is also now accessible to non-SAP Information Steward users who have a stake in the scorecard’s data domain
    • This feature enhances the ability of the Data Steward to communicate with stakeholders, an executive sponsor for example, and helps non-stewards understand the governance event and direct appropriate action
