From the Advisory Institute
When it comes to efficiently responding to market forces, satisfying customers, and reducing risks and costs, real-time capabilities afford an organization the laser-like focus and flexibility that executives once only dreamed of. The technology industry has only recently evolved to a point where this is a reality within reach of every company.
Along with enormous opportunity, however, real-time capability brings a challenge to transform the way organizations manage the oceans of data, now referred to as "big data," that fuel it. It's a challenge that dominates strategic planning for both the C-suite and IT, because such a broad variety of factors are at play.
In this paper, KPMG offers five considerations for adopting in-memory computing architecture, such as SAP HANA, that can bring the data closer to the computer's processors, improving speed by significant proportions.
