Did you know that the origins of cloud computing can be traced back to the 1950s? Back then, mainframe computers were extremely expensive and only used by large companies and learning institutes. To facilitate the growing demand for computer resources, multiple users were able to access a central computer through dumb terminals, whose only function was to provide access to the mainframe.
ERP Forecast: partly cloudy
Increased strategic agility, short deployment times, reduced IT efforts, lower risk and costs, flexibility and scalability to support changing business needs: the advantages of cloud computing indeed are gripping. No wonder that it has turned into one of the most compelling IT options for companies of all sizes and in all industries. It is evolving by the day, and it shows no signs of slowing.
The dominance of cloud over traditional IT may not yet be official, but the writing clearly is on the wall.…

When it comes to observing the technology industry, nothing is more exciting and satisfying than seeing an idea become a world-changing reality. It starts with a fledgling solution, then an interesting alternative worth experimenting with, then a successful and award-winning product, and finally the driver of a major shift in how things get done. That is what we are seeing with the GridGain and Apache® Ignite™ in-memory computing platforms. Why will 2017 be the year of an in-memory computing tidal wave?

The digital enterprise is all about velocity and agility. Every speedup is a competitive advantage—whether you’re shortening time-to-market or accelerating decision-making.
I like to think of the cloud as the go-faster agility engine for the enterprise… and SAP HANA Cloud Platform (HCP) as the fuel for innovation.
HCP has lots of cool features, but what really excites me is how our customers are using this platform as a service (PaaS) to become digital winners. I’m particularly pleased about the innovation I’m seeing in e-commerce, data analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Add business services quickly and easily
The importance of e-commerce is obvious. But how to roll out new services is not so obvious. For example, how do you guarantee compliance everywhere you do business?
To help you zip around these speed bumps, HCP supports a wide range of e-commerce, customer loyalty, and customer engagement services. These services—…

Apache® Cassandra™ is a popular NoSQL database that does certain things incredibly well. It can be always available, with multi-datacenter replication. It is also scalable and lets users keep their data anywhere. However, Cassandra is lacking in speed. Cassandra is not fast enough for some of today’s extreme OLTP workloads because it stores data on disk. Cassandra also shares certain limitations of other NoSQL databases such as limited querying capabilities.

Information Excellence for Digital Business: Metadata Management
In my previous blog I discussed at a high level three aspects of Information Excellence for Digital Business; Transforming Data into Insight, Acting in the Moment, and Innovating without Constraints.
While the business drivers for information excellence may not be surprising;

  • Business innovation
  • Improved decision making
  • Increased efficiency and agility
  • Greater compliance and risk management

I think the breadth of capabilities need to achieve information excellence may surprise some.

In a digital business, the need for “information excellence” is not only aspirational, it is foundational to the success of an enterprise. But what is information excellence? Simply stated, it is the ability to ensure that enterprise data is trusted, complete, and relevant for analytical or operational use cases.
Are you running a live business? If you are, then you likely depend on having high quality data that is readily available for business processes and analytics. You also know that with the explosion of data volumes, types, and systems that are creating and storing information is not all that easy to keep up with. Sigh!
So how do we create trust in data, find relevant data to transform our insights, and govern it within the applications and systems that drive customer engagement? With the latest product innovations and new versions of the enterprise information management (EIM) portfolio we announced January 30, 2017 in this…

Financial fraud is now a multi-billion-dollar business and growing rapidly, with Juniper Research predicting that online fraud alone will climb from $10.7 billion in 2015 to 25.6 billion in 2020. Financial fraud prevention is critical as failure to detect and prevent fraud can harm the reputations of financial firms and reduce confidence in the industry as a whole.
