Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) has announced their first online couse on the new openHPI platform – “In-memory Data Management” course lectured by Professor Hasso Plattner himself, founder of HPI and co-founder of SAP. It will be a great learning opportunity if you want to get a deep understanding of the in-memory technology and its application in enterprise computing. Just go to openHPI website and you can easily sign up for free.
The course will start from September 3rd, and will last 6 weeks. Upon completion you will receive a certificate from HPI. It will be an interactive and social learning experience – you not only get a chance to learn the “in-memory computing” topic, but also build your personal network with other peer learners. To learn more about openHPI platform, please read our interview summary with Professor Meinel, CEO of the Hasso Plattner Institute. We believe this Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) model will become an important element in the future of education.
The online course focuses on the management of enterprise data in column-oriented in-memory databases. Latest hardware and software trends led to the development of a new revolutionary technology that enables flexible and lightning-fast analysis of massive amounts of enterprise data. The basic concepts and design principles of this technology are explained in detail. Beyond that, the implications of the underlying design principles for future enterprise applications and their development are discussed. Unbelievable things are possible and you will understand why this is true using an in-memory column-oriented database instead of a traditional row-oriented disk-based one.
A brief overview of the course content:
- The future of enterprise computing
- Basic and advanced database storage techniques
- In-memory database operators
- A new enterprise application development era
