Plattner not only finances HPI, as head of the “Enterprise Platform and Integration Concepts” department, he has also made a personal commitment to research and teaching.
His initiative has facilitated a number of groundbreaking innovations. One of the most significant examples is HPI’s research into in-memory data management (a project Plattner personally oversaw). The project led to the creation of HANA, a product of the SAP software corporation. In 2012 this technology received both the German Innovation Award and the Berlin-Brandenburg Innovation Award.
