Adoption of in-memory technology solutions is happening faster than ever. This stems from a three pronged demand – first, a greater number of users, analysts, and businesses need access to data. Second, the number of transactions is increasing globally, so companies need faster ingest and analytics engines. Finally, performance inconsistencies are the nail in the coffin for companies competing in the on-demand economy – these enterprises need the responsiveness in-memory technology provides.
In addition to these rising demands for real-time data access and analytics, several other factors contribute to in-memory technology adoption as outlined in the following graphic:
