Historically, in-memory databases have been seen as a niche technology. As in-memory processing becomes less expensive and more mainstream, however, potential uses are expanding. And, with the promise of deeper data analysis -- and, better business benefits -- IT professionals' ears are pricking up. Still, for many organizations it's going to be a matter of if, and not when, to proceed with implementation.
To that end, SearchDataManagement editors have compiled a three-part guide to in-memory database trends, serving up expert advice on evaluating, deploying and managing the technology.

We close with key insight into the capabilities and potential uses of new in-memory options being released for mainstream relational databases. Access >>>
