Preview-Quote for new Book by CEO of leading Online Games Company with around 300 mio Users

It rarely happens that an 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.

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.

Among other new content, we introduces an in-memory application programming model that includes the most important aspects and guidelines for developing in-memory applications. To ease the tasks of application developers and database administrators, we discuss the graphical creation of database views. Finally, we also elaborate on new features on application level  through the combination of data analytics and text search  and by presenting two new industry case studies Charite (HANA Oncolyzer,  new App which combines structured and unstructured Data) and Hilti.
