The era of memory-centric BI may have finally started

SAP is acquiring Business Objects. There’s nothing inherent in BI Accelerator’s design that ties it to NetWeaver, SAP star schema InfoCubes, or any other particular current implementation detail. So BI Accelerator could become a lot more than an afterthought.

Combine that with Cognos’s acquisition of Applix and the continued success of upstart QlikView, and we could finally see a general memory-centric BI boom.

Maybe. There have been a lot of false alarms before.

We market it based on the business value and our marketing funds are limited so most of our growth has been through word of mouth and extensive use by a few of the Fortune 500 clients we have. We have clients in over 60 countries, over 10,000 licenses users, about 400 corporate clients.

    We were listed in this year’s reader’s choice, Best in Class Awards in Consumer Goods Technology magazine Top 10 list for BI. We were the obvious “up and comer” on the list because of our mature, proven In-Memory OLAP platform and very positive praise from our clients. Salient.com
