Hybrid transaction/analytical processing will empower application leaders to innovate via greater situation awareness and improved business agility. This will entail an upheaval in the established architectures, technologies and skills driven by use of in-memory computing technologies as enablers.
Impacts and Recommendations
- The emergence of HTAP means IT leaders must identify the value of advanced real-time analytics, and where and how these enable process innovation
- By eliminating analytic latency and data synchronization issues, HTAP will enable IT leaders to simplify their information management infrastructure, if they can overcome the challenges of adopting this new approach
- Technology immaturity and established application environment value and complexity will force IT leaders to plan for long-term coexistence between HTAP and traditional approaches
