In the last fifty years the world has been completely transformed through the use of IT. We have now reached a new inflection point. This book presents, for the first time, how in-memory data management is changing the way businesses are run. Today, enterprise data is split into separate databases for performance reasons. Multi-core CPUs, large main memories, cloud computing and powerful mobile devices are serving as the foundation for the transition of enterprises away from this restrictive model. This book provides the technical foundation for processing combined transactional and analytical operations in the same database. In the year since we published the first edition of this book, the performance gains enabled by the use of in-memory technology in enterprise applications has truly marked an inflection point in the market. The new content in this second edition focuses on the development of these in-memory enterprise applications, showing how they leverage the capabilities of in-memory technology. The book is intended for university students, IT-professionals and IT-managers, but also for senior management who wish to create new business processes.

It rarely happens that a emerging new technology can be seen as a "game changer" for a whole industry. But I think this is the case when it comes to in-memory database systems. Tasks which took hours or days can now be executed in seconds which is the technical foundation for establishing completely new business ideas. It dramatically speeds up the execution time of data analytics and thereby creates a much greater experience for the end user on our Bigpoint Gaming Platform. The book "In-Memory Data Management - Technology and Applications" from Hasso Plattner and Alexander Zeier describes not only the technical foundations but also the implications for new exciting applications.

Dr. Ralf Schneider (CIO, Allianz SE, Munich, Germany)

Being IT savvy and leveraging advances in Information Technology is the most important competitive advantage in today's business world. I see in-memory technology as described in the book "In-Memory Data Management - Technology and Applications" from Plattner and Zeier as one of the most important innovations in the field of IT. The value for the economy as a whole far outweighs the effort of adapting the applications to this new standard. It dramatically speeds up the execution time of business processes, it allows for significantly more detailed and real-time data analytics and thereby creates a much greater experience for the end user. It brings business computing to a level where it is absolutely snappy and fun to work with.
