E-3 Rubrik: Open Source Kolumne

Open source is a key factor in the SAP community, with software such as Linux already established in the scene. New themes include: Apache, OpenStack, Hadoop, KVM, Cloud Foundry, etc.

Open source and GitHub/GitLab are closely linked. Three years ago, GitHub created a monetization option for open source developers and companies with the sponsorship button.
Orchestrate with open source. Everything is going digital. Everything is being automated. But who keeps track? Which software do we trust to control the flow of all digital processes?
Cloud computing has permanently changed the IT landscape. Not only in the offerings of the major public cloud providers, but also in the principles of how IT infrastructure is thought about and implemented - including at SAP.
No company can afford to ignore the advantages of open source software anymore: Independence and flexibility are simply too lucrative. And innovative technologies such as AI and edge computing are also based on OSS.
As a result of the Corona crisis, open source software and IT system landscapes based on it have also gained in importance, among other things. The reasons here are the rapid availability without lengthy license procurements.
SAP and the entire SAP community have been successfully using more and more open source for many years. The use of hundreds or thousands of different components by SAP customers will be the rule, not the exception, in 2022.
What role will open source play in the future? Successful and healthy open source projects are about more than just code. A strong community is an engine that can drive bolder innovation.
Open Core sounds like a good idea: open source technologies enriched with individual proprietary features. But the model gives pause for thought, because the interests of the vendors may differ from those of the community.
The use of open source supports DevOps teams in agile software development. But in the drive to produce code faster and faster, protecting confidential and privileged credentials often falls by the wayside.
The Eclipse Foundation, home to more than 400 open source projects, is organized into self-managed working groups. Why was this approach chosen? And how does collaboration between members work?
It is well known that cloud computing is the engine of the digital transformation taking place. An important component of this - cloud-native technology - is given with SAP's Gardener.
Kubernetes has greatly changed the world of virtual machines (VMs) and containers. Cloud Foundry (CF) is also being deformed by the gravity of Kubernetes (k8s).
Work on SAP Basis is crucial for successful S/4 conversion. This gives the so-called Competence Center strategic importance among SAP's existing customers. Regardless of the operating model of an S/4 Hana, topics such as automation, monitoring, security, application lifecycle management, and data management are the basis for the operative S/4 operation. For the second time already, E3 Magazine is hosting a summit in Salzburg for the SAP community to get comprehensive information on all aspects of S/4 Hana groundwork. With an exhibition, expert presentations, and plenty to talk about, we again expect numerous existing customers, partners, and experts in Salzburg. E3 Magazine invites you to Salzburg for learning and exchange of ideas on June 5 and 6, 2024.
