Prof. Dr. h.c. mult. Hasso Plattner

Trends and Concepts in Software Industry I

Dozent: Prof. Dr. h.c. Hasso Plattner (Enterprise Platform and Integration Concepts)


The focus of this lecture is on enterprise applications, especially with regards to in-memory databases and a programming model for enterprise applications. The lecture will largely be based on the In-Memory Data Management book by Prof. Hasso Plattner, which will be given for free to all enrolled students at V-2.11 (Marilena Davis). Students can pick up their copy after corresponding announcement. Parts of the lecture will be conducted in a flipped classroom setting, meaning that participants have to prepare parts of the content beforehand, which will allow for more dynamic discussions about vital parts of the introduced technologies and additional hands-on sessions. During the block week, we will have several guided discussions and controversial questions with the aim of reflecting the content and increase your ability to judge current trends and concepts with a focus on in-memory database technology. Additional presentations will complement the block week. After the lecture the students should be able to discuss and judge emerging trends of software engineering and data management in the context of enterprise applications.
