It is an IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service)

  • BI4

Ashish said they have the world’s first, and only in memory cloud platform, built on HANA, with database services,

Lumira Cloud is built on HCP

Idea is to be able to connect to application cloud and still connect to on premise

Analytics is fast moving, changing the way work

      I got quite excited that you were in Vancouver, and then noticed it was hosted virtually for you. *lucky pants*

      Coffee is long over-due. Perhaps @ ASUG (if I make it)


      P.S. I enjoyed playing "find the presenters mouse" on the screenshots~
      Now, I'm off to run towards cloud! *swoosh*

      Thanks for this, your blogging is prolific and a tremendous asset to the community. You should do a "how to" on blogging!

      HCP has huge potential, I expect Lumira Cloud to be just the start. Previous BI in the cloud (BI on Demand) was really before its time and fraught with issues that can now be solved with this platform.

      One small note, IaaS is "Infrastructure as a Service" - Unless there is yet another acronym?!

      Here here on the blogging point!

      IaaS is indeed Infrastructure as a Service
