Newsbyte: SAP Named a Self-Service Business Intelligence Leader by Independent Research Firm
WALLDORF, Germany, June 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced that it has been positioned by Forrester Research as a leader in “The Forrester Wave(TM): Self-Service Business Intelligence Platforms, Q2 2012″ report. Forrester highlights SAP’s abilities to easily scale and provide real-time insight into vast data environments as key factors in securing its leadership position.
According to the report, “SAP BusinessObjects offers excellent self-service functionality on big data. In-memory is the name of the self-service BI game these days when one is looking for answers at the speed of thought. Most in-memory DBMS engines, however, have practical limitations of analyzing no more than a few hundred GBs at a time. To address this limitation, SAP now offers a highly differentiated combination of [SAP] BusinessObjects Explorer with its top exploration and discovery capabilities and the SAP HANA in-memory appliance.”(1)
