SAP HANA-One Technology to Watch in 2012 (and Beyond)


Did you know that SAP HANA is much more than a high-speed analytic appliance? TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic reveals how HANA is a universal database that will enable companies to analyze large volumes of operational and transactional information in real time, from virtually any data source, and that will eventually deliver an entirely new class of applications that will change the way people think, work, plan, and operate.

The key difference is in data organization, i.e., database tables and their relations. In relational databases , normalization refers to a single entity describing only one event from the real world, and vice versa. In contrast, OLAP data organization disregards the theories of normalization, and the data is rather kept in Read More

How to Evaluate Web-based BI Solutions


Web-based business intelligence (BI) is no longer an anomaly: organizations are ready for BI solutions that go beyond Web portals. However, when selecting Web-based BI applications, organizations must evaluate architecture, rather than features or functions. What differentiators do you need to look for before embarking on a full-scale BI implementation? And which vendors offer the solution your organization truly needs?

Operational Business Intelligence and Performance Management: Key Differentiators

What is the Value of Real-Time Data?


What do you consider real-time information? When you pull information from your shop floor and back office, your reports should be run against live data, not data that is delayed. Too many manufacturers miss out on critical decision-making pieces of the puzzle because of a lack of timely production details. The solution to this information delay can be an online transaction processing (OLTP) system...find out more in this white paper from IQMS.
