The first openHPI courses


openHPI starts on Monday September 3rd with the online course In-Memory Data Management taught by Prof. Hasso Plattner, founder of HPI, co-founder of the software giant SAP and chairman of its supervisory board. The subject of the online course is the new in-memory data management technology researched at Plattner's chair. This revolutionary new technology enables the flexible evaluation of huge amounts of corporate data at the speed of thought. What used to take minutes, hours or even days can now be done in seconds. Unbelievable things are possible and within this online course you will understand why this is true using an in-memory column-oriented database instead of a traditional row-oriented disk-based one.
