Interview with Irfan Khan

This week I had the opportunity to attend some of the Mastering SAP Technologies 2013 sessions, held in Melbourne Australia, as well as the accompanying SAP Inside Track.

You can find some great coverage of the SITMEL and SAP Tech conference by Custodio de Oliveira here and bySimon Kemp here.

As part of the conference, the keynote was presented by Irfan Khan, who is the Head of Solution Management for Database and Data Warehousing as well as the Chief Technology Officer for the SAP Database & Technologies pillar.

Irfan’s keynote focused on ‘What Is Driving Technology at SAP?’, and ranged from discussion on programming for cache misses at the hardware level 20 years ago, to alleles and genome sequencing with HANA.

Later that day, Irfan gave me some of his time to sit down for an interview about his keynote and the Real-Time Data Platform (RTDP), which you can watch below.
