The book "In-Memory Data Management - Technology and Applications" by Hasso Plattner and Alexander Zeier describes a revolutionary database technology and many implementation examples for business intelligence and operations. Of particular interest to me are the great opportunities opening up in supply chain management, where the need to balance the speed of planning algorithms with data granularity has been a long time obstacle to performance and usability.

Personalized health care requires the combination of distributed medical data. In-memory technology enables us to analyze millions of patient records within a second and allows us to devise therapies even closer to the patients individual needs than ever before.
Heiko Hubertz (CEO and Founder, Bigpoint GmbH, Hamburg, Germany)
It rarely happens that a emerging new technology can be seen as a “game changer” for a whole industry. But I think this is the case when it comes to in-memory database systems. Tasks which took hours or days can now be executed in seconds which is the technical foundation for establishing completely new business ideas. It dramatically speeds up the execution time of data analytics and thereby creates a much greater experience for the end user on our Bigpoint Gaming Platform. The book “In-Memory Data Management – Technology and Applications” from Hasso Plattner and Alexander Zeier describes not only the technical foundations but also the implications for new exciting applications.
Dr. Ralf Schneider (CIO, Allianz SE, Munich, Germany)
Being IT savvy and leveraging advances in Information Technology is the most important competitive advantage in today's business world. I see in-memory technology as described in the book "In-Memory Data Management - Technology and Applications" from Plattner and Zeier as one of the most important innovations in the field of IT. The value for the economy as a whole far outweighs the effort of adapting the applications to this new standard. It dramatically speeds up the execution time of business processes, it allows for significantly more detailed and real-time data analytics and thereby creates a much greater experience for the end user. It brings business computing to a level where it is absolutely snappy and fun to work with.
