SAP on Wednesday outlined a roadmap for its in-memory computing applications.
The enterprise applications giant has been hot for in-memory computing as a way to speed up analytics while cutting out the database as the middleman. In-memory computing puts data into RAM and avoids traditional storage. Without that storage and database layer, processing can become more real time.
For SAP, the in-memory push is the latest installment of a broader vision. SAP released its High-Performance Analytic Appliance (HANA) late last year.
At an event in Boston, SAP launched new applications with in-memory technology as well as refresh existing software "in ways that were not previously possible," according to a statement.
Specifically, SAP plans to roll out in-memory technology in the following applications this year:
Other applications such as BusinessOne are already running in-memory technology in the labs.
