Keynote: The Velocity Of Business Requires In-Memory Computing

Don’t make the common mistake of thinking that in-memory computing is simply about slapping more chips in a box to make apps run faster. In-memory computing is a fundamentally new approach to application design, development, and deployment – if done right. It enables virtually latency-free applications, can reduce development time by simplifying architectural concerns, and most importantly, allows you to create a whole new class of adaptive apps that anticipate andforrester-logo adapt to the needs of each user to deliver more relevant and profitable functionality. This is revolution, not evolution. In this keynote, Forrester Principal Analyst Mike Gualtieri will discuss the business, technology, and market trends that pushed in-memory from a nice-to-have to a must-have application development platform.
