Jeff Wootton – #SAPTechEd 2013 Speaker of the Week
The chilly night breeze and cloudy skies must mean it’s almost SAP TechEd season. In the weeks running up to SAP TechEd we have featured a different superstar speaker. This week’s featured speaker is Senior Director of TIP HANA Product Management – Stream Processing, Jeff Wootton. Jeff became an SAP TechEd speaker last year but was a part of Sybase events previously with global responsibility for Sybase Event Stream Processor (ESP), a high performance real-time event processing engine.
Until recently, event processing technology was a stand alone technology. The recent integration of event processing technology with SAP HANA has Jeff excited about the future of real-time stream processing. Jeff in inspired by new technological trends and sees the proliferation of real-time processing technology into sensors that can send back data and be able to understand and respond to it in real-time.
“The big thing this year is our innovation of our stream processing technology which we call SAP HANA. We delivered that integration December and it has really generated a lot of interest because we aren’t just capturing raw data but we’re able to filter, cleanse, and enrich that data as it arrives. So what you’re capturing in SAP HANA not just raw data but useful data. SAP TechEd this year is going to be our opportunity to show people how they can use that and where it can be applied”. – Jeff Wootton
