Why Read This Report

The in-memory database platform represents a new space within the broader data management market. Enterprise architecture (EA) professionals invest in in-memory database platforms to support real-time analytics and extreme transactions in the face of unpredictable mobile, Internet of Things (IoT), and web workloads. Application developers use them to build new applications that deliver performance and responsiveness at the fastest possible speed. Forrester identified the 11 most significant software providers — Aerospike, DataStax, IBM, Kognitio, MemSQL, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, Starcounter, Teradata, and VoltDB — in the category and researched, analyzed, and scored them against 19 criteria. This report details how well each vendor fulfills Forrester's criteria and where the vendors stand in relation to each other to meet next-generation real-time data requirements.
