POTSDAM, Germany, August 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Extensive worldwide interest in new main memory database technology has led the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) to offer a further open online course on this topic. The course, to be held in English, will begin on September 1 on the interactive learning platform http://www.open.hpi.de. Leading the latest Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is Prof. Hasso Plattner, the co-founder and Supervisory Board chairman of the software giant SAP and founder and benefactor of HPI. The in-memory data management researched and developed with SAP enables the flexible and lightning-fast evaluation of huge amounts of data - a process that used to take hours or days.
"Since its start in fall 2012, in-memory data management has been enthusiastically welcomed by the 32,000 registered openHPI users. Main memory database technology has garnered an impressive amount of interest," said the HPI founder. More than 4,500 participants have successfully completed the two courses so far and earned a certificate. "High participation, with especially strong student interaction, has shown massive open online courses to be groundbreaking in IT education," said Plattner. The interactive learning offered in combination with a lively exchange of knowledge on a social platform has been very well received.
Plattner's latest online course (registration at http://www.open.hpi.de/courses/imdb2014) is the updated and further advanced version of the two offers presented up to now. There is now a special focus on the organization of data into active and historical sections as well as on the application of the new technology in different areas of industry. The course offers over 30 learning videos from Plattner and his team, comprehensive reading material for a deepening of the material, online tests to self-check learning progress, homework and an online final exam. Participation is completely free of charge.
