In an article written last year by an industry analyst that I respect, IDC’s Carl Olofson, he gave the impression that in-memory analytics are the wave of the future, the new paradigm for high performance analytic databases. He said, “embrace the new paradigm and plan for it.”
For once, I didn’t agree with him.
In-memory analytics are last decade’s revolution, or even last century’s. The wave of the future is something far faster, and far more revolutionary.
