Mrs. Shruthi Hanagol Ramesh
Team Lead, SAP Labs, Bangalore
Venue: Department of MCA
Mrs. Shruthi Hanagol Ramesh with 15 years of industry expereience is working as a Team Lead at SAP Labs, Bengaluru. Mrs. Shruthi started the lecture, by exhibiting how the SAP world has been rapidly changing over the last two years. The volume of data continues to grow exponentially resulting in massive economic and societal disruption. She highlighted how the new technologies are emerging. Traditional business functions are being totally transformed. Technologies like S/4HANA, Cloud, Mobile, Augmented Reality, Smart Machines and Wearables are the essentials tools and enablers of this transformation. She highlighted that it is against this backdrop they have created Mastering SAP Technologies.
Mrs. Shruthi Ramesh continued listing the core themes for SAP this year are expected to be the cloud, S/4 and HANA, since SAP is positioning its offerings as the "digital core" for modern businesses. SAP technology is currently in an active delivery cycle, producing product updates and adding features. Focus on S/4HANA is expected, but the coming innovations on the core HANA platform will be interesting — HANA is truly becoming a full-fledged development and runtime environment, not just an in-memory database. It will be able to host applications using a wide range of technologies, such as TomEE and Node.js, and provide enterprise integration options, all while getting supports through SAP's development tools.
She also threw light on the SAP Virtual Machine Container, highlighting the design of the SAP NetWeaver Application Server which is aimed at providing an exceptionally high level of robustness and supportability for the applications running on it
With the Virtual Machine Container technology (VM Container, VMC), SAP has achieved a technological foundation that allows Java applications to be executed with a similar level of robustness as software developed in ABAP. She discussed the aim to be isolating individual users from each other as securely as possible to avoid any unwanted restrictions. In order to provide an optimal runtime environment for selected scenarios with especially high demands on a narrow ABAP-Java coupling, in this release a Java VM can also run integrated in the ABAP work process.
The lecture concluded with a note opinionating that we live in world where digital is woven into the fabric of our lives; where the pace of change is accelerating, its trajectory exponential, and the convergence of paradigm shifts is the new norm. The impact will be profound, as structures, industries, value, ethics, and traditional transformation strategies are challenged and re imagined, and societal progression moves us from profit to purpose. It’s a looking-glass world, making us rethink our long-held notions of success and failure.
The event concluded with Dr. Poornima Nataraja, Professor and Head, Department of MCA, thanking the speaker for providing the students with an insight into future of technology.
