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 (Andrea Lange).

Students can pick up their copy after June 09th.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
