CeBIT: Software AG Announces its Strategy for the In-memory Management of Big Data

HANOVER, Germany, March 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --


  • Organizations will be able to transform their businesses by taking maximum advantage of the volume, velocity and variety of Big Data
  • Together, speed and scalability will support entirely new business processes and faster business decisions
  • Central to the strategy is a platform to provide low latency, in-memory access to huge volumes of data from any source
  • Through the integration of in-stream event processing, Software AG will provide the ability to act on business events moving at internet speeds

Software AG today announced its strategy for the next generation of Big Data management, up to 1,000 times faster than current technologies. This will give customers real-time access to the huge amounts of business information in Big Data, driving faster business decisions. Real-time visibility into operational business activities will also enable companies to design new, innovative and highly flexible business processes. Central to the strategy is a platform that uses Software AG's BigMemory technology to rapidly access terabytes of data of any type and from any source. The platform will also integrate in-stream business event processing so that customers gain maximum real-time business intelligence from their Big Data and a unique competitive advantage.

Software AG's Next-Generation Data Management Platform is designed to overcome the challenges of managing Big Data using traditional data management approaches, including the proliferation of data silos exacerbated by new database types. By integrating its in-memory and event processing technologies into a single platform, Software AG will provide the speed, scalability and flexibility needed to meet changing business requirements. In addition to enabling rapid access to huge in-memory volumes, the Next-Generation Data Management platform will interface with existing databases, a range of new data streams and leading-edge analytic tools.

"Immediate access to large amounts of data and its analysis in real time increases transparency enabling quick decisions and short reaction times. This enables organizations to respond to market changes immediately and realize significant competitive advantages. High speed and scalability in the analysis of large volumes of data is a critical success factor for companies," said Software AG CEO, Karl-Heinz Streibich.

Software AG's BigMemory product is currently deployed at many large enterprise customers for multi-terabyte in-memory use cases. The company will build on BigMemory with capabilities that include in-flight processing of event streams and services for data profiling and aggregation, making real-time business analytics possible. In addition, the company will enable the processing of data from all data environments-transactional, analytic, relational/non-relational, Hadoop/NoSQL and social-in a single in-memory store.  

"We are integrating our Business Events technology and BigMemory to perform real-time analytics," said Software AG CTO, Wolfram Jost. "Our vision is to provide an in-memory data management platform that bridges the needs of transactional and analytic applications. This approach provides low latency access to huge volumes of data to both enterprise applications and analytics and also interfaces with a range of new and legacy data stores and analytical tools. This provides a bridge between the IT of today and tomorrow."
