Accelerating time to insight for mid-market firms using in-memory analytics
Although mid-sized firms have many things in common with large enterprises, they differ radically in terms of the level of budget and resources they have at their disposal. Not surprisingly this is a major factor governing the choice and selection of any business intelligence (BI) reporting, analysis, or planning solution. In-memory analytics provides mid-sized companies with a faster, more flexible, and arguably lower-cost way of accessing and processing information. All features are especially important to mid-size companies who are turning to BI and analytics to enable them to become more agile and respond quicker to changing market conditions.
